Byrne and Partners and PCB Litigation have merged as of 1 April 2021, bringing together two like-minded, dynamic market leaders in fraud litigation to form a new top-tier firm specialising in all forms of dispute resolution – PCB Byrne.

Operating from London, PCB Byrne will provide in-depth expertise and unparalleled service having decades of experience in dealing with complex UK and International disputes in the civil, criminal and regulatory sectors. With 14 partners and 49 fee – earners, PCB Byrne will be a conflict-free firm delivering creative and commercially focused solutions.

The merger allows PCB Byrne to bring together a wider range of expertise in its core disciplines to build the best bespoke teams for clients whilst retaining its commitment to exceptional, hands-on service. Increased capacity and resources will create new opportunities to develop PCB Byrne’s existing portfolio of corporate crime, insolvency, banking litigation and international arbitration work.

The firm is also scaling up its work across Asia, the Middle East, Russia and the CIS, enhancing the firm’s presence in these key markets.

Sara Teasdale, Managing Partner, Byrne and Partners, said:

“This merger is a landmark moment for both teams. We have known each other for a long time and our merger follows two years of discussion. Both firms have a proven track record and joining forces strengthens our breadth and depth of expertise in solving complex cross-border disputes and achieving outstanding outcomes. Operating on a new scale, PCB Byrne will offer a full range of dispute resolution and commercial and criminal litigation services.”

Anthony Riem, Managing Partner, PCB Litigation, added:

“As well as being a merger of skills and specialisms, this is a merger of two complementary cultures. I think each firm has hugely talented individuals and bringing them together will create an even more dynamic atmosphere in which they can thrive and help us to achieve our goal of becoming the go-to specialist firm for heavyweight dispute resolution matters.”
