Orrick, Herrington at the Rodeo!


It's weird. They can't seal the deal. No one wants to dance, not even a firm that's seen better days.

As law.com reported, "[t]his isn't Orrick's first merger rodeo. [The firm] "has a long history of going pretty far down the aisle with potential merger partners, only to ... fall apart."



Orrick failed to bed, er merge with, Dewey Ballantine ("Dewey Orrick Herrington - DOH!"), and previous dalliances with Coudert Brothers, Cooley, Venture Law Group, Donovan Leisure Newton & Irvine and Swidler Berlin Shereff Friedman, turned up the fig. (That sounds more like the VIP list to The White Party at Vizcaya than a law firm merger wish list.)

Wait! I know a good target!

NB Based on results to date, the big boys at Orrick could stand to channel their inner Joan.
