Eberle said his law firm had been entertaining the idea of a merger for a few years now. Discussions with Husch Blackwell started in November, and Whyte Hischboeck Dudek picked Husch Blackwell out of a candidate pool of thirty because of culture fit.

Back in October, we reported that 2015 was a busy year for law firm merger and acquisitions. Legal consultancy firm Altman Weil said the rate was higher than any other time, and that many firms find acquiring other, smaller practices was easier than conducting lateral hiring. The firm also saw an explosion in Midwest mergers.
