International legal practice Norton Rose is to combine with US law firm Fulbright & Jaworski on 1 June 2013 to form Norton Rose Fulbright.



Norton Rose Fulbright will have 3,800 lawyers and will be a top 10 global legal practice by gross revenue and by number of lawyers.

The enlarged practice will have 55 offices internationally, including 11 offices and close to 800 lawyers in the US, in Austin, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Pittsburgh-Southpointe, San Antonio, St Louis and Washington DC.

Norton Rose Fulbright will also have an office in Riyadh and additional strength in London, Dubai, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Munich.

The practice will have expertise in litigation and dispute resolution, corporate, intellectual property and banking and finance.

By industry sector, Norton Rose Fulbright will occupy a market leading position in the areas of energy; pharmaceuticals and life sciences (including healthcare); financial institutions; infrastructure, mining and commodities; technology and transport.

Norton Rose Fulbright will also establish a global regulatory and investigations practice.

Peter Martyr (pictured), chief executive, Norton Rose, says: “The US legal market is the largest in the world and our combination will create a truly global practice with significant depth of expertise in the world’s principal business and financial centres.

"We have been looking at the US market for a number of years, seeking a firm that meets our requirements for excellence in law, good business synergies and a compatible culture. Fulbright & Jaworski meets all our criteria; it is financially strong, with forward-looking management and similar strategic growth aspirations."

Steven B. Pfeiffer, chair of Fulbright & Jaworski’s executive committee, says: "Fulbright’s combination with Norton Rose will expand our global platform and enable us to provide an even broader range of services to our clients. We will be an international leader in providing seamless and superior client service."
