Cartwright King and Macnab Clarke are merging on the 1st July 2015, as part of Cartwright King’s continued expansion drive.
The deal sees Cartwright King secure a new presence in the South, with an office in Oxfordshire. This takes the firm’s number of offices to 18 nationwide, including the recent addition of Manchester, Bolton and a further office in London.
The move brings a new director, Kate Macnab, and eight staff, which takes the firm to over 260 employees.
In addition to reinforcing the firm’s criminal defence reputation, particularly in the area of serious fraud, the merger will also see Cartwright King expand its motoring solicitors team.
Rupert Hawke, managing director of Cartwright King said: “I am delighted to announce our most recent merger, which will not only boost Cartwright King’s geographical offering but also our expertise in crime and serious fraud cases.
“Macnab Clarke is a highly respected firm, with a great reputation built upon the results it achieves for its clients. This fits exceptionally well with Cartwright King’s culture and determination to deliver the very best possible service for our clients."
Kate Macnab, director at Macnab Clarke, added:
“We are delighted to become part of Cartwright King. We welcome the opportunities this brings to our staff and clients and intend to help Cartwright King continue to build and develop a strong presence in the Thames Valley. We are especially pleased that our reputation for client care and commitment to criminal Legal Aid built up over the past decade will be developed and expanded through this collaboration.”
The merger represents another key development in our ongoing expansion plans, and we continue to welcome enquiries from firms across the country.
