A 200-year-old solicitors has acquired a rival law firm in an ‘historic’ move which is expected to increase turnover by more than 20 per cent in the first year.

Coventry-based Brindley Twist Tafft & James (BTTJ) has taken over MacNamara King Solicitors, which has bases in Warwick, Balsall Common and Southam.

BTTJ says the acquisition will strengthen its reputation as a leading West Midlands firm of solicitors and expand its services across the region.

The acquisition will see all offices remain open and BTTJ’s workforce increased to 70 – with around five new jobs expected to be created over the next 12 months.

Samantha Wright, senior partner at BTTJ,  said: “This is a major development for BTTJ, and we look forward to expanding our capacity and capabilities as well as extending our range of services and introducing our specialist expertise across all offices through this acquisition.

“The past few months have not been without challenges, for both firms, but even in these difficult times, BTTJ and MacNamara King have been committed to moving forward with its expansion plans – all while adapting to new ways of working for the benefit of both clients and employees.

“We have remained open throughout the covid-19 epidemic to ensure consistency of service to our clients adhering to safe practice by arranging to either hold meetings remotely or via Zoom.

“It has worked extremely well, and we will continue to operate in a safe and socially distanced way for the protection of both our staff and clients both in Coventry and at all of our new sites.”
