A new ‘Top 200’ law firm for Peterborough & Cambridge
A new ‘Top 200’ law firm for Peterborough & Cambridge

In an exciting development, Greenwoods Solicitors LLP and GRM have merged to form Greenwoods GRM LLP.

Greenwoods, an ambitious law firm, has been actively seeking an opportunity to enhance the services it offers and fuel its growth through merger with a London-based law firm.  It has taken its time to find the right firm, which shares its ambitions, values and ethos and has found that partner in GRM.

Greenwoods’ head office has been in Peterborough for over 70 years; the firm’s Peterborough and Cambridge offices will continue to be a critical part of operations.

Greenwoods GRM will continue to offer the same high-quality, agile and responsive legal services our clients have come to expect. 

With 26 partners and 85 lawyers, Greenwoods GRM has established bases in London, Cambridge and Peterborough together with international specialisms including South Korea, Italy and Germany.

Greenwoods’ Managing Director, Robert Dillarstone, will be the Managing Partner of Greenwoods GRM and Jane Laidler, the Senior Partner of GRM, will continue in that role for Greenwoods GRM. 

Both are excited about the future.  Robert Dillarstone says:

“The combining of Greenwoods and GRM Law is a merger of two firms from a position of strength and with shared ambition, values and ethos.

Greenwoods GRM brings together a long-standing London firm with an East Anglian regional powerhouse. The merger reinforces our ability to meet the needs of regional, City, national and international clients with friendly professionalism and exceptional lawyers.

This is combined with a ’think local, act global’ approach to international work, founded on strong links with the expatriate business communities operating in London and across the UK.

We offer lawyers who work with us high-quality, interesting work, along with a real focus on work/life balance.  This is an aspect of our shared culture we intend to maintain, nurture and build on.  As a result, we attract and retain exceptional lawyers, enabling us to deliver high-quality legal services.”

It’s great news for us, for our clients, and is hugely positive for the region.”

Through the GRM history, Greenwoods GRM can trace its roots back to 1784, and can claim four past Law Society Presidents and to have drawn up the laws of Rugby Union!
