The law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski LLP made a major announcement via a press release on Wednesday morning. The firm announced that it was merging with the firm of Norton Rose to create a global practice that will employ 3,800 lawyers working in 55 offices in the United States, Asia, Europe, Canada, Australia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. The merger will take effect on June 1, 2013 and the new firm will be known as Norton Rose Fulbright.

Both of these law firms have worked together in the past and the chair of the Fulbright Exeuctive Committee, Steven Pfeiffer, said that the merger “will expand our global platform and enable us to provide an even broader range of services globally with seamless and superior client service.”


The chief executive for Norton Rose, Peter Martyr, was quoted in the press release as saying that the law firm took a look “at the U.S. market for a firm that meets our requirements for excellence in law, good business synergies and a compatible culture. Fulbright & Jaworski meets all our criteria; it is financially strong, with forward-looking management and similar strategic growth aspirations.”

The chair-elect of Fulbright’s Executive Committee, Kenneth L. Stewart, said, “This is a smart combination of two groups whose geographic presence, capabilities and client service cultures are strongly complementary. The combined organization can provide the experience, insight and service our clients need in doing business around the world.”
