Sale of the century – Has Camerons picked up a bargain with Olswang and Nabarro?

Amid a turbulent market, the three-way union of Camerons, Nabarro and Olswang has forged a UK giant. Has Camerons picked up a bargain or will there be buyer’s remorse?

September 1988. Twenty fresh-faced trainees are preparing for their first day at Nabarro Nathanson. Among the recruits are Iain Newman, Paul Stevens and Duncan Weston. Not only will the trio go on to have prominent careers in City law and remain on good terms, but more than 25 years later they would kickstart the UK’s largest-ever legal merger.
