The merger is one of the few in recent years between an American Lawyer "Top 100" firm and a UK firm, and underscores the firms' belief that London's preeminence as a commercial and financial centre will not be impacted, long term, by the UK vote to exit the European Union.
"We are excited to have finalised this trans-Atlantic merger between two well-established law firms," said Haynes and Boone Managing Partner Tim Powers. "We are confident that Haynes and Boone CDG, LLP will quickly achieve a very significant reputation in the London market and in the provision of English law advice to our growing global client base."
The combination marks the latest expansion for Haynes and Boone, which last year opened offices in Chicago and Denver.
Founded in 1996, CDG built a reputation as one of the leading London firms serving the shipbuilding and offshore oil and gas industries.
The merger positions the combined firm to continue to expand internationally and to offer clients enhanced services in global transactions and dispute resolution.
