Aaron & Partners pledges investment and new jobs with purchase of niche practice
22nd May, 2013
Cheshire’s biggest commercial law firm today pledged investment and creation of new jobs as it announced the takeover of a rival practice.
Aaron & Partners has acquired niche employment firm Bennett’s Legal in Shrewsbury as part of an ongoing expansion strategy.
The acquisition will be rebranded Aaron & Partners and become the firm’s third office after Chester and Manchester. The new owner expects the Shrewsbury office to be generating fees of more than £1m a year within the next three years.
Aaron & Partners chief executive, Andy Duxbury, said: “This acquisition will give us a presence in Shrewsbury where our client base has been growing for some time. In addition it provides us with a platform to expand into new markets and deliver specialist legal services across Shropshire.
“Several of the most senior Aaron & Partners staff are already known in the area and can now make use of the Shrewsbury office to further develop the great connections we have. Above all, though, we want to grow the office by means of local recruitment of specialists in our key market sectors.”
All Bennett’s Legal staff will join Aaron & Partners. They include managing director, Paul Bennett, a specialist in employment and regulatory law, who founded the practice in 2009. He will join as a partner when the purchase takes effect on 16 May.
Paul said: “The experience of setting up and running my own business has been invaluable in helping me understand the needs and challenges of my clients, many of whom are of course business owners themselves. By joining Aaron & Partners I can now offer my clients a broader range of legal services, while still helping to develop a practice here in Shrewsbury.”
Aaron & Partners, which employs 102 people, has a strong client base among owner-managed businesses and SMEs.
In 2012, it won more plaudits than any of its Chester-based rivals in the highly regarded Legal 500 directory for the third year running and received top reviews in the prestigious Chambers UK 2013 rankings.
