Robson Rhodes merger still leaves Grant Thornton distant fifth
Monday night saw the completion of the Grant Thornton’s merger with Robson Rhodes. It’s reported to be one of the biggest LLP mergers in British history, with 17 lawyers on the Grant Thornton side alone, but the Big Four still remain clear market leaders. Rob Lewis reports.
The enlarged firm will have more than 300 partners and 4,400 staff, operating from 33 locations and an initial fee income of £387m per year. Michael Cleary, Grant Thornton's CEO, has stated intentions to increase that to £500m within three years.
