Carroll, Burdick & McDonough will assume the Squire Patton Boggs name.

Squire Patton Boggs global chair Mark Ruehlmann (pictured) said: ‘In an increasingly regulated and interdependent global economy, our clients rely upon us now more than ever for compliance solutions across virtually all industries.’

Squire Patton Boggs’s announcement states that Carroll, Burdick & McDonough has offices in Böblingen, near Stuttgart, ‘giving the combined firm a significant presence in the centre of Germany’s industrial powerhouse of Baden-Württemberg’.

Carroll, Burdick & McDonough also has offices in Hong Kong and Los Angeles, which will ‘strengthen the combined firm’s presence’ in California and the Pacific Rim, the announcement continued.

The combination will come into effect next month.

Carroll, Burdick & McDonough has over 50 lawyers. Its website states that they can speak more than 16 languages, including Mandarin Chinese, French, Latvian, Romanian, German, Russian and Spanish. More than 20% of the lawyers also have legal educations in two or more countries.

Squire Patton Boggs has more than 1,500 lawyers across 21 countries.

  • I once met Melvyn Belli in his offices on Montgomery Street, San Francisco. I am not sure that US ethics are the same as ours, well as ours once were anyway. Legless accident victims dragging themselves into court unaided, witnesses paid to disappear until a trial was over, not what we would expect to see, but that's the Wild West.

  • What a name. Speaks volumes about the psychology of hubristic legal nomenclature. When the clients believe in a name like that they will kiss your arse all the way to the bank.

  • Apt, though, Anon4.43 if you've had a brush with the law, or, of course, if you're on a roll.
