Speaker: Douglas M. Doerfler

Program: So, your law firm is in merger talks - what to expect and how to prepare.

Sponsor: Ricoh

Session Description:      During this session you will learn about the merger process from someone who has been on the inside of multiple mergers and served as a merger consultant for two recent, successful law firm mergers. Regardless of law firm size and regardless of whether your firm is "acquiring or being acquired”, this session will prepare you, or get you through, the merger and integration process.


  • Why do firms merge?
  • What exactly goes on during merger negotiations?
  • What is a term sheet?
  • Who makes the decisions – staffing, systems, timing, etc.?
  • One firm is always the acquirer – how will you know?
  • New firm culture is critically important. How will you impact it?


Session length: 25-30 minutes
