Ashurst sets 75% threshold for October vote on Aussie integration
Ashurst partners are set for an October vote on full financial integration with legacy Australian firm Blake Dawson, following their 2011 tie-up. A full merger of Ashurst and Blakes – now known as Ashurst Australia – will require a 75% majority of both partnerships when it goes to the vote later this year. The combination would see the firms combine legally as one partnership with a shared global profit pool, with the combined firm operating a managed lockstep – a system both firms currently use.
