DMH Stallard completes merger with Ross and Craig Solicitors

14 Dec 2015

Leading South-East and London law firm DMH Stallard has today finalised the completion of its merger with long established London firm, Ross & Craig Solicitors. The merger is the second deal to be completed by DMH Stallard in 2015, following its merger with Guildford firm, AWB Partnership, in January.

DMH Stallard first announced its intentions to merge with Ross and Craig in October.

The merger between the two firms further strengthens DMH Stallard’s presence in London. All of Ross & Craig’s existing team, including their eight partners, are now based in DMH Stallard’s existing London office in New Fetter Lane. The merged firm retains the DMH Stallard name, and the London operation now has a total of 23 partners and a turnover next year in excess of £10 million. The total number of partners across all DMH Stallard’s offices is now 60.

The merger follows strong financial performance for DMH Stallard over the last 12 months with profits increasing by 10%.

Richard Pollins, Managing Partner of DMH Stallard, who led the deal, says:

Following the successful regional merger with Guildford firm, AWB Partnership in January this year, I am delighted to complete our second merger of 2015. It remains our strategy to seek out quality merger partners in London and the region and I hope that we will announce further mergers over the coming months.

"The merger with Ross & Craig will bring our turnover next year in London to over £10 million, and over £26 million in total across all of our offices. I’m confident that the merger with Ross & Craig will provide us with a solid platform on which to continue to grow in London as the market improves. I’m looking forward to working closely with our new team in London”.

Stephen ten Hove, Managing Partner of Ross & Craig added:

We are delighted to have joined DMH Stallard. The move to the new office has been seamless and we are settling into our new environment quickly. The merger will enable us greatly to enhance the range and type of services that we offer to our clients.”
