Morrisons Solicitors LLP has completed the acquisition of Wheelers Solicitors, one of the largest solicitors practices in the Blackwater Valley area. This is Morrisons’ second acquisition in 12 months, following the addition of Oxted-based Harrops & Hepburn Solicitors in December 2018.
Wheelers provides expert advice and a highly personalised service to individuals and businesses in Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire and beyond. Joint Managing 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.”
Morrisons Solicitors LLP will continue to trade as Wheelers, or Wheelers Solicitors, in the region from the Ash Vale, Farnborough and Fleet offices.
