CHESTER, Wrexham and London-based practice Walker Smith Way has acquired Thornleys Solicitors’ Ashton-under-Lyne and Birmingham team, giving the firm a presence in Greater Manchester and the Midlands.
The move combines the two specialist practices and adds 22 members of Thornleys staff to Walker Smith Way’s 130. Walker Smith Way opened an office in London just 12 months ago.
Walker Smith Way’s senior partner, Brian Dawson, said: “There is a strong affinity between the two firms, both culturally and strategically. We are delighted that we have found an ideal match in the Greater Manchester and Midlands area with Thornleys and we are looking forward to working with the team from Thornleys and building on our joint success.”
