The ink has barely dried on the three-way merger agreement between U.K. law firms CMS Cameron McKenna, Nabarro and Olswang but rumors are already circulating that an American firm may be joining the party.

It would be easy to dismiss any such move as wildly overambitious. Law firm mergers are notoriously hard things to put together—most talks break down long before making it to a partner vote. Actually integrating them is harder still.

And CMS Cameron McKenna is seeking to assimilate not one but two sizeable firms into its partnership, in the largest-ever U.K. law firm merger. Its focus should therefore surely be on realizing that deal, rather than trying to do another, right? Not necessarily.
