DWF and Cobbetts merger talks end
DWF LLP and Cobbetts LLP have ended talks over a possible merger, the two firms have announced.
The firms both have head offices in Manchester, and had been in discussions about joining forces, with a potential combined reach across Birmingham, Leeds, London and Newcastle.
In joint statement, DWF and Cobbetts said: “The preliminary discussions between DWF and Cobbetts regarding a potential merger have now come to a conclusion and we have made the decision not to progress these talks any further due to the current uncertainty in market conditions.
“Growth by merger and lateral hires continues to be an option for both firms but until any discussions are brought to a conclusion, we will not be in a position to talk about them publicly.”
