K&LNG courts Preston for merger
Pittsburgh-based Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham LLP and Seattle-based Preston Gates & Ellis LLP are building strategies for a possible merger. If the discussions are successful, it will create one of the largest multifaceted firms with diverse practice areas, covering all major destinations of the world. The move will generate a law firm with strength of 1,400 lawyers in 21 offices across continents. The talks which began in July would finalize by the year's end.

Since its inception in 1946, K&LNG's workforce has grown to more than 1,000 lawyers in its Pittsburgh office and its revenue touched $468.9 million in 2005. PG&E which was established in 1883 is the second largest law firm with 420 lawyers and 200 partners in 11 offices, including 226 attorneys in Seattle. Its strengths are corporate finance, intellectual property, technology law, besides M&A. The two firms are assessing each others' practice areas, especially the complementary areas of expertise and others that may tip the balance.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
