Partners and staff (pictured) from Top 100 law firm DMH Stallard and regional law firm Rawlison Butler gathered this week to celebrate our merger which took place on 1st September.  

Trading under the DMH Stallard name, the merged firm now operates from Crawley, Horsham, Guildford, Brighton and London. It brings our total number of partners to over 70 and creates an overall team strength of nearly 350. Turnover for our combined mid-market firm is forecast to exceed £30m in 2017/18, two thirds of which will be in Sussex and Surrey.

Richard Pollins, Managing Partner of DMH Stallard, said:

“I was delighted how smoothly the merger process went. This was our largest merger since 2005 when we merged with Stallards, and it took a huge amount of planning and preparation. All of that hard work has enabled our teams to integrate quickly and they are already working very closely together”.

“These are very exciting times indeed for DMH Stallard as we reinforce our position as the leading mid-market law firm in the South East and extend our scope and capabilities, not only regionally, but in London and internationally too. Our clients will see a real benefit from the merger over the coming weeks and months”.

The merger with Rawlison Butler is the third during Richard Pollins’ tenure as Managing Partner following the two mergers in 2015, the first with Guildford law firm AWB Partnership and then Ross & Craig Solicitors in London.
