DWF attributes Cobbetts merger hint to 'over-zealous' IT employee
DWF has confirmed that it has held informal merger talks with a number of firms including Cobbetts, after news emerged today (4 November) that the website dwfcobbetts.co.uk had been registered for business. Managing partner Andrew Leaitherland said that DWF was in informal merger discussions with "three or four firms", but stressed that any agreement was not imminent, and that the dwfcobbetts.co.uk domain name had been registered by an "over-zealous" member of the firm's IT team.
