It’s been one year since partners at U.S.-based Bryan Cave and London-based Berwin Leighton Paisner voted to combine, creating a firm with more than 1,400 lawyers and offices across the globe.

On the first day of the combination, there were balloons, champagne toasts and swag with the new firm logo. But what’s happened since? How do law firm leaders maintain momentum behind a merger and motivate lawyers across the world to work together?

On this Legal Speak podcast, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner co-chairs Therese Pritchard and Lisa Mayhew speak with Law.com reporter Roy Strom about the work of integration and how the deal is delivering on expectations.
