Wadsworths Solicitors expands with buyout deal

Published on Thursday, 21 May 2020

A West Midlands law firm has expanded its footprint in the region by acquiring a rival practice.

Wadsworths Solicitors, which has offices in Solihull and Henley-in-Arden, has bought out Warwick-based Duncan Watts Family Lawyers with the potential for further acquisitions in the future.

Both practices have been in business for more than 30 years and the combination brings the total payroll up to 29 staff across the three bases.

The Warwick office will continue to operate and be led by Duncan Watts' partner Martin Croom.

It will be rebranded as 'Wadsworths Solicitors, incorporating Duncan Watts' later this year.

Wadsworths Solicitors' managing director John Wadsworth said: "Duncan Watts has an excellent reputation in the field of family law and we are thrilled that this expertise will be added to our existing service provision.
"We had been looking to open a Wadsworths office in Warwick for some time, given how thriving and vibrant the town is.

"This tie-up with Duncan Watts allows us to establish ourselves in the area with an existing firm and client base.

"We look forward to building on the firm's close links to the community and extending our charitable support activities into the Warwick area too.

"We will continue to look for new opportunities in Warwickshire and the West Midlands in the months and years ahead.

"We're committed to acting in the best interests of our clients, so if continued expansion meets that goal, we'll always be open to the possibility."

Mr Croom added: "We are excited to be joining Wadsworths and expanding our offering of legal services to the people of Warwick and surrounding areas.

"Our clients will benefit from the broader expertise we can now provide across a wider range of services, meaning that we can cover all their legal needs under one roof."
