Wilson Browne

IN recent years the Wilson Browne Solicitors name has become so much more than a name - it has become a brand that people recognise and associate with high-quality work, a dynamic forward-thinking approach, and a sharp but sustained increase in profile.

In turn, the firm has continued its growth, becoming a very serious player in the region with one of the largest commercial law teams and five offices across two counties. This growth has been achieved through a well-executed strategy and investment in people, whilst being careful to maintain an equal focus on private client work (legal advice for individuals).

As of Monday, 8 April, Friday Legal Solicitors became part of Wilson Browne Solicitors with all staff and partners from the former joining the award-winning firm.

Wilson Browne Solicitors was the firm of choice for existing Friday Legal Partners and stakeholders due to its sharp rise in reputation and profile, as seen in the numerous awards, recognition from peers, and general brand presence.

John Punni and Doug Iles from Friday Legal jointly commented: "Wilson Browne Solicitors was the obvious choice. In recent years they have gone from strength to strength and this is good news for clients of both existing firms as it will result in a legal services provider which is unrivalled in the county."

Kevin Rogers, Head of Commercial Law echoed those comments, adding:"Our focus is (and will remain) on delivering results for our clients. This is great news for everyone involved and makes us greater than the sum of our parts: it adds additional resource and capacity as well as providing an even more comprehensive offering."

Wilson Browne Solicitors has seen continued growth in both turnover and number of employees, whilst retaining a solid financial footing. The latest acquisition follows a strong track record in both organic and acquisitive growth. With this acquisition, Wilson Browne Solicitors retains all staff and premises, giving it six offices and over 160 employees.
