On Monday 10th January 2022, the Morrisons Group, which includes Morrisons Solicitors, Wheelers Solicitors and Harrops & Hepburn Solicitors, rebranded to become Morr & Co.
With eight offices across Surrey, Hampshire and South West London, Morr & Co is one of the South East’s leading law firms.
From its origins in Surrey in 1729, the firm has been growing and adapting; expanding into new areas, developing its people and offering a wider range of services.
In recent years Morr & Co has grown through natural development and through acquisition.
With both acquired firms having strong brands and great reputations in their respective regions, it was decided to keep their names, whilst integrating them into the Morrisons Group. However, the time has come to bring the brands together. And so, on 10th January 2022, the firm became Morr & Co – the same team of expert solicitors, just under a new name.
Paul Harvey, Morr & Co’s Managing Partner said “Uniting the firm under a new and modern brand is very exciting for us. Morr & Co feels like a natural progression for the business. There’s a familiarity about it and a connection to our past and our rich heritage, but it’s also progressive and takes us into the future.”
Morr & Co now represents a broad and loyal client base across the region, which remains at the forefront of the work ethic and values of the firm.
The evolution of the firm
It’s not the first time Morr & Co have changed name. In 1812 when George Morrison joined the firm, “Morrison” appeared in the company name for the first time. Since then, there have been various name changes, before becoming Morrisons Solicitors in 1978. With the company’s 300th anniversary approaching, the firm has taken the opportunity to modernise once again, while retaining an unbreakable link to its origins and heritage.
Over the past 20 years in particular, Morr & Co has seen enormous growth, both organically through the acquisition of talented lawyers and support staff, as well as more recently through mergers with other respected law firms.
Why Morr & Co?
Morrisons Solicitors has been known affectionately as Morr Law for many years. The firm’s new name represents that familiarity and respects their history. In addition, the “& Co” recognises the unification of their brands, and the company of talented individuals across the business.
Managing Partner, Paul, continued, “I passionately believe that everybody in the firm has a very important part to play, and the “& Co” represents just that. We’re in this together. We are a team. We share our core values.”
The future of Morr & Co
Morr & Co has long supported both individuals and businesses with their legal requirements – with the depth of knowledge, capabilities and resources of a large firm, and the approachability of a local practice.
Paul went on to say, “Whilst the visual part of our business has changed, I want to assure everyone that there will be no changes to the services that clients receive nor to our commitment to supporting those in the surrounding areas.”
We hope that our clients and communities will come along on this journey with us, and see us as a modern, progressive law firm, who are moving forward, and responding and adapting to change, to provide the services they need from us today, and in the future.”
The firm promises to continue playing an active part in the communities in which it operates, supporting local charities and causes, and will remain heavily involved with its regional business communities. “This is part of who we are and that won’t be changing.” Paul added.
