Historic Cirencester solicitors announce merger
1:03pm Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
TWO Cirencester solicitor firms will merge at the end of September to make up the largest and longest running firm in the town.
Sewell Mullings Logie Solicitors and Sanders Brickwood will be merging on September 30. Both firms originally wanted to expand and, as staff at Sewell Mullings Logie Solicitors and Sanders Brickwood realised they shared similar clients and had studied similar types of law, merging seemed like the ideal option.
Both firms have a combined history of over 230 years making them the longest running soliciters firm in Cirencester. They plan to work under the new name Sewell Mullings Logie incorporating Sanders Brickwood in the current office of Sewell Mullings Logie based on Dollar Street.
Managing partner of Sewell Mullings Logie Erica Burrows said: "The breadth and depth of service that we can now provide to the local community and beyond will be strengthened by the merger. We are the largest firm of solicitors in Cirencester with a combined staff of over 40 people and we are delighted that Rupert Sanders will be joining us."
Rupert Sanders of Sanders Brickworth seemed equally confident that the merger will enable both firms to give their clients a new depth of service."We decided to merge with Sewell Mullings Logie because we know them well and can be sure that together we will be able to provide our clients with a service which will best suit their needs," he said.
Despite business soaring for both solicitor firms, their commitment to the people of Cirencester and the Cotswolds is still strong and ongoing.
"Both firms have concentrated on providing advice and legal services for people living or working in Cirencester and throughout the Cotswolds and will continue to do so as we are committed to providing a friendly and efficient local service to local people," said partner at Sewell Mullings Logie Nicholas Parsons.
Although Sanders Brickwood is a smaller firm, the staff at Sewell Mullings Logie have done everything they can to welcome their new partners. An informal meet and greet took place earlier this week where staff at Sanders Brickwood had the opportunity to become aquainted with their new workplace and colleagues.
