Wadsworths Solicitors are proud to announce its acquisition of Warwick-based Duncan Watts Family Lawyers. The tie-up between the two firms came into effect on 3 April 2020.
Like Wadsworths, the niche family law firm has had over 30 years of success. The addition of Duncan Watts increases the firm’s overall presence to three locations and 29 staff including Martin Croom, a partner at Duncan Watts, who now joins Wadsworths as Head of the Warwick office.
The town centre offices at 26 Market Place, Warwick will still be home to the family law specialists of Duncan Watts, with the addition of Wadsworths’ complete range of legal services across both family and business law. The office will be re-badged as ‘Wadsworths Solicitors, incorporating Duncan Watts’ later this year.
Martin Croom stated “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.”
John Wadsworth, commented: “We are delighted that the team at Duncan Watts are joining us at Wadsworths. 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.”
He added “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.”
On the question of further expansion, John Wadsworth said “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.”
