Winston moves to sign Howrey partners as merger talks collapse
Howrey was this week considering its strategic options as US rival Winston & Strawn moved to take on teams of partners in the US and Europe. Winston is trying to sign deals with individual partners after merger talks between the two firms broke down last month because of conflicts – including an ongoing class action in the US on which the pair are on opposing sides. Winston is understood to have made offers to around 75% of Howrey’s partnership since last Sunday (30 January), including all three remaining partners in London and the 10 partners remaining in Brussels, with those approached given 21 days to respond.
