The Mishcon de Reya team supported consulting firm Emergence Partners Ltd on its merger with automation specialists Symphony LAM. Backed by Stanley Capital, the two organisations formed a new, global AI market-leading business, Cognition.
Adam Bradley, Partner in the Mishcon de Reya Corporate team, said: “It has been a pleasure working with such innovative and driven people within the Emergence and Symphony LAM teams. This merger will ensure they can reach their full potential and can continue to deliver the best possible service in the growing AI market.”
David Poole, Executive Chairman of Emergence, added: “While this merger brings together businesses with a shared passion for using advanced technologies to accelerate their clients’ growth, no business transformation is easy. This merger just wouldn’t have happened as quickly and smoothly without the dedicated work of the Mishcon de Reya team, managing multiple stakeholder groups, in different time zones and languages and with unique cultural considerations and ways of doing things. It’s been another reminder that people are the heart of every business and putting them first is the place to start.”
