Norton Rose ends hunt for US merger partner with $2bn Fulbright tie-up
Norton Rose has sealed one of the largest-ever transatlantic mergers, with the firm agreeing to tie up with Houston's Fulbright & Jaworski in June 2013. The deal, approved by more than 75% of Fulbright partners at the weekend and by Norton Rose partners at the firm's Toronto conference earlier this month, will create a firm just outside the global top five, with combined revenues of nearly $2bn (£1.26bn) – just behind Clifford Chance.
