We are pleased to announce that we have completed our merger with one of Manchester’s most respected law firms, augmenting our global commercial litigation practice.
berg, founded in 1980 by Reuben Berg, specialised in banking and finance, commercial disputes, employment, real estate, and corporate and commercial matters. Reuben, who was Senior Partner at berg, and Alison Loveday, formerly CEO at berg, join as Partners together with their team, and will double the size of our UK commercial practice. Our global commercial practice currently operates throughout the Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEA regions.
We opened our Manchester office in 2008 and, in October last year, moved into larger premises in the city to accommodate growth in the region. Currently located on Peter Street, the team from berg will move to our Manchester office in Churchgate House on Oxford Street on 1 October 2017.
This announcement is the latest landmark in a year of consistent growth for us, following office openings in Melbourne and Mexico City, a formal association in Italy, a merger with US law firm Carroll McNulty & Kull; and seven lateral partner hires so far this year.
