The legal market is consolidating yet again. Well-known consulting company Hildebrandt is now part of the Thomson organization. 

According the Hildebrandt press release, “Combined, Hildebrandt International and Thomson bring unrivaled industry insight, client knowledge and consulting expertise, providing exceptional management, organizational and technology advice and services to the legal profession.”

It will be very interesting to see what impact this merger has on legal technology coming from Thomson. Thomson already has excellent insight into the legal market, but now gains even deeper access, not only to IT and legal research, but also to top level law firm management.
