Implementing Conditions for Regional Merger

Two similarly sized firms in separate large cities on either end of a state were discussing consolidation to compete more effectively with large out-of-state firms that were entering their market. Each firm had a small office in each other’s city. We assisted the firms in working out the details of merging their partner compensation systems, consolidating their offices in each city, working out the details of combining a partnership with a professional corporation that operated on different fiscal years, and dealing with underproductive partners who were not invited to join the combined firm. The merger took effect within less than 100 days after discussions commenced and continues to operate successfully.
