The firms announced merger plans last year creating a £250m law firm ranked 11th in the UK with about 300 partners based in 14 locations across the country, expanding its private client and business legal services considerably.

The merger increased the firm’s presence in London and the south east and half of the group’s revenue now comes from clients in the southern half of the UK. Offices in Gatwick, Chichester, London, Newbury and Southampton, have been rebranded.
