Presents information on the probable merger of law firm Richards Butler with a U.S. firm Proskauer Rose LLP. Whatever happens from here on in, the two firms have been talking since the latter part of 2004. Whether or not it ends up in full-blown merger--plenty of talks founder--a transatlantic tie-up is fundamental to Richards Butler's international progress. As far as Richards Butler is concerned, Proskauer looks like a pretty good bet. It's not cuddly, but it's stable, and its strongest suit is litigation, particularly high-level employment cases.
