We are delighted to let you know that on 31st December Morrisons Solicitors completed the acquisition of Wheelers Solicitors – one of the largest solicitors practices in the Blackwater Valley area.
This is a continuation of the growth of Morrisons across the region, and the addition of offices in Farnborough, Fleet and Ash Vale extends our reach and consolidates our position as one of the leading firms across the South East.
The four Wheelers Partners and their team (totalling 40 people) cover a wide range of services to businesses, individuals and families. The combined teams will give clients access to a greater depth of resources.
The Partners and the whole team at both Morrisons and Wheelers are very excited about this merger. The two firms have become well acquainted over the months in which we have been discussing it and we are confident that the new firm will enhance the service we provide to our clients.
Wheelers Partners Mel McCrum and James Palmer, said:
“We are delighted to be joining The Morrisons Group. Morrisons is one of the leading firms in the South East and joining them provides us with a solid platform upon which we can continue to grow in the region. The team at Morrisons gives our teams greater depth, allows us to provide a broader range of services to all of our clients and gives us more resources across the board, so, as we grow, we can continue to be focused on providing the same outstanding service to all our clients.”
Paul Harvey, Managing Partner of The Morrisons Group, commented:
“Wheelers has been one of the leading firms in the Surrey/Hampshire borders for many years and I am thrilled to bring them into the Morrisons Group. Wheelers is a very well-run firm at an exciting stage of its development. Mel and James’ ambitions match ours and this adds further strength and depth to our presence in the region. Following on from the acquisition of Harrops & Hepburn last December, this demonstrates our ambition and commitment to our clients across the South East.”
Wheelers will continue to operate as Wheelers Solicitors from their three offices for the foreseeable future as integration gets underway. So it is business as usual for all of our clients across the regions.
