Is Bigger Better?
Think only mega-firms and boutiques will survive in the long term? As evidence of the global imperative, just yesterday, two major firms announced international expansions. In Tokyo, Squire Patton Boggs is combining with Mamiya Law Offices to grow its 1,500-lawyer presence across 44 offices in 21 countries. The 2,300-lawyer Hogan Lovells is combining with Barrera, Siqueiros y Torres Landa, adding its 46th and 47th offices in Mexico City and Monterrey. Retired Four-Star General Walter Sharp joined McKenna Long's Seoul office last week, and Catherine Pogorzelski has come on board at DLA Piper in Luxembourg.
