Bank of America Corp is mounting a campaign to rehire several of the more than three dozen senior Merrill Lynch & Co investment bankers who quit after the firms merged, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the efforts.

Those approached in recent weeks include Samuel Chapin, a Merrill vice chairman who left in April and who was part of a group of senior bankers who focused on maintaining relationships with large corporate clients, the news agency said.

Bank of America could not be immediately reached for comment by Reuters.
