Kerman & Co LLP merged with Max Bitel Greene LLP on January 1 st 2012, with the combined firm operating under the Kerman and Co. name out of their existing offices in the Strand, Central London. Max Bitel Greene is recognised as being one of the industry’s leading sports and commercial law firms, with over 30 years experience of advising clients in the sports and media industries.
Daniel O’Connell, Managing Partner, Kerman & Co., said: “We are delighted to be able to make this significant announcement, and to welcome Max Bitel Greene into our firm. The two firms share similar values and Nick Bitel, Louise Millington-Roberts and their colleagues are highly regarded by their clients for their commercial expertise - both are recommended in The Legal 500. Sports law is now seen as a distinct branch of the law and MBG has been at the forefront of the development of this discipline, particularly in relation to doping, ticketing and brand protection work.”
Nick Bitel, Senior Partner of Max Bitel Greene, said: “As a well-regarded niche firm, we have been approached on many occasions over the years to join forces with other firms but have never felt that they would allow us to continue to offer the same level of service. Kerman & Co., however, more than meet our expectations in this regard and will continue the tradition we have for professionalism, expertise and client service.”
