The partnerships of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP (SNR) and Denton Wilde Sapte LLP (Denton) combined to form SNR Denton. Launched on September 30, 2010, SNR Denton had more than 1,400 lawyers and professionals in 18 countries, forming a top 25 legal services provider worldwide by number of lawyers and professionals.
The newly merged firm will have offices in more than 50 countries and somewhere in the range of 6,600 lawyers, making it far larger than the next biggest firm, Baker & McKenzie, which has about 4,000 lawyers.
Dentons has been on a frenzied merger pace of late: In January, it united with the roughly 4,000-attorney Dacheng Law Offices of China, in a deal structured as a Swiss verein, which allowed the firms to maintain separate profit pools but also to share certain expenses. That merger created the largest firm in the world, a global behemoth governed by a board of 19 directors and combined reported global revenues of more than $1.6 billion. « less
