So I'll be starting my TC at a firm in London in 2019 after doing the LPC from September 2017. I am currently doing an LLM.

In my TC offer, there is no mention of any minimum academic requirement I have to satisfy (i.e. conditional on receiving a merit...) with regard to the LLM. Just says that I need a 2.1 and if I haven't finished my degree yet I need to provide proof of my grades once I've received them.

Wanted to check whether the firm is likely to care how I perform on my LLM?

They don't care, firms tend to only give you minimum conditions for those aspects of your education that actually affect qualification, i.e., the LPC and GDL (if applicable). If your offer letter does not mention the LLM, then that is as clear a sign as any that the firm does not care how you do in it.

Anecdotal: By and large, I have heard from most Grad Recruitment reps that LLMs/Masters really don't matter to firms. They look at your undergraduate degree results and your overall profile when handing out offers.
