The largest merger so far involved Patton Boggs and Squire Sanders, which is now known as Squire Patton Boggs. The combined firm has more than 1,500 lawyers and the merger took effect on June 1.

A principal from Altman Weil, Ward Bower, said the following in a statement: “This pattern of one or two big combinations per quarter along with a large number of small, safe deals has emerged since the recession.
