On Sunday 1 January Mishcon de Reya LLP and Taylor Vinters LLP completed their merger after it was first announced in September 2021. A joint statement confirmed that more than 200 staff joined Mishcon de Reya, including 145 fee-earners and 60 business operations and legal staff as part of the merger.
The merger has been described as a “strategic combination” that aims to drive innovation at the firm, which will be named Mishcon de Reya, according to Legal Cheek.
Kevin Gold, executive chair of Mischon de Reya said: “This exciting move sees us become one of the largest law firms serving the ecosystem of the innovation economy. In the next three years, we aim to cement this position and be recognised as the leading law firm for innovators across technology, media and life sciences.”
Mishcon is headquartered in London and has international offices in Singapore and Hong Kong. Meanwhile, Taylor Vinters’ UK offices in London and Oxford will both remain open.
Prior to the merger, Mishcon offered 25 training contracts annually, while Taylor Vinters offered five; the firm has confirmed that both training contract schemes will continue to run “in parallel”.
