Gordon Dadds and Ince & Co enter merger talks

Publicly listed firm Gordon Dadds is in merger talks with Ince & Co, which if successful will create a major new international law firm.

Gordon Dadds floated on the London Stock Exchange in 2017, and as the Law Gazette reports, has been looking for further growth opportunities ever since. Meanwhile, Ince & Co is an international commercial maritime law specialist with a network of affiliated offices in Beijing, Cologne, Dubai, Hamburg, Hong Kong, Le Havre, London, Marseille, Monaco, Paris, Piraeus, Shanghai and Singapore.

The potential tie-up would create a firm with offices in 17 separate European and Asian jurisdictions, and annual revenues of £114 million.

In a statement, Gordon Dadds said: “The boards of Gordon Dadds and Ince & Co are in discussions to merge the two businesses. The precise structure and mechanics of the transaction are also under discussion and the respective boards are working towards a further announcement as soon as possible.”
