It is not known how many officers and lawyers will be involved in the merger, should it succeed, but client issues always arise in such deals, causing entire practices to leave firms in some instances.

Founded in Philadelphia, Morgan Lewis has 25 offices, with nine more overseas, and employs some 1,350 lawyers.



Revenue at Bingham dropped by 13 percent last year. The firm could be left with less than 750 lawyers across its offices following the loss of its U.K. restructuring practice.
