Addleshaw Goddard has recently advised US law firm Haynes and Boone, LLP on its transatlantic merger with London based Curtis Davis Garrard.

The merger, which completed on 1 September 2016 after approval as an ABS from the Solicitors Regulation Authority, will result in the merged entity using the name Haynes and Boone CDG, LLP in the U.K. and Haynes and Boone, LLP in the U.S. and other markets. It will have nearly 600 lawyers and offices in twelve U.S. cities, London, Mexico City and Shanghai.

The Addleshaw Goddard team was led by partner Aster Crawshaw and Zulon Begum.

Commenting on the deal, Aster Crawshaw said: "It's great to see another AmLaw 100 US law firm making a commitment to the UK. This merger shows that London is still a priority for US law firms looking to target the global stage, notwithstanding the EU referendum result. We are delighted to have played a role in this landmark transaction for Haynes and Boone".
