Company law question (merger/LLP) from a noob
February 6, 2013 1:09 PM Subscribe
I was DLA Piper's wikipedia page and came across this sentence:
"It is composed of two partnerships, the United Kingdom-based DLA Piper International LLP and the Untied States-based DLA Piper U.S. LLP. The two partnerships share a single management board but are not financially integrated."

What does the above mean exactly?
May I also know what topic this falls under in company law (I think it's company law), and where may I learn more about it, ie. what are the implications, risks etc of sharing a single management board and not being financially integrated? I don't have enough context to fully understand what it means.
Additionally, what are other merger models are there? How would companies choose what sort of merger to do/what factors are taken in consideration in mergers (a.) in general, b.) in legal firms)?
Where should I begin understanding all of this? What have you found useful? I don't have a business background whatsoever.
