End of the road for Chadbourne as merger goes live

Norton Rose Fulbright and Chadbourne & Parke have completed their combination, with the latter’s brand name disappearing after 115 years in the market.

The merger was confirmed in February 2017, after legal media in the UK reported talks between the international law firms. After approval from both partnerships and extensive review of potential client conflicts, the combination became official on June 30th, 2017. The newly expanded Norton Rose Fulbright has more than 4,000 lawyers across 59 offices worldwide.

“The rationale to combine Norton Rose Fulbright with Chadbourne & Parke is simple. Chadbourne wanted to provide its clients with an extended international platform and additional resources in the US. Norton Rose Fulbright was seeking to extend its capacity in the all-important financial and regulatory markets of New York and Washington, DC, and to enhance the firm’s capabilities in project finance, corporate, bankruptcy, litigation and white collar disputes, tax, and Latin American finance and infrastructure work,” read the announcement.

As reported by The Latin American Lawyer, neither legacy firm had a presence in Spain. Across Latin America, the offices do not overlap: legacy Norton Rose Fulbright has offices in Bogota, Caracas and Rio de Janeiro while Chadbourne is in Mexico and Sao Paulo. The combination gives Norton Rose Fulbright a sought-after presence in Mexico.
