Robert Dillarstone, Managing Director, Greenwoods Solicitors LLP
Leading Peterborough-based regional law firm, Greenwoods Solicitors LLP, has merged with Walker Wallis, a Cambridge-based law firm which provides commercial litigation, corporate and commercial services with a strong reputation in Cambridge and beyond.
Walker Wallis’s directors, Duncan Walker and Huw Wallis, are now directors and members of Greenwoods Solicitors LLP; Duncan in the Corporate & Commercial team, and Huw as Head of Commercial Dispute Resolution.
As a result of the merger, Greenwoods now has a Cambridge office which is on Cambridge Business Park. The merged firm will operate under the Greenwoods name and brand.
Talking about this news, Robert Dillarstone, Greenwoods’ Managing Director, said: “Merging with Walker Wallis is great news for both firms – Greenwoods now has the opportunity to access the Cambridge marketplace from a position of strength whilst Walker Wallis clients are able to enjoy a wider range of services and skills.”
“Duncan and Huw are top drawer lawyers and we all feel that there is a very good fit between our respective firms. We all hit it off from the word go, principally because our approach to business is the same. Despite these continuing tough economic times, we are viewing the future with much anticipation and excitement.”
In many ways it’s business as usual. Clients will continue to enjoy the excellent service they’ve come to expect from Greenwoods and Walker Wallis. Talking about the decision to merge, Duncan Walker and Huw Wallis said: “During discussions at the end of last year, it became clear that Greenwoods and Walker Wallis shared the same approach to running and developing their businesses. Our businesses held the same values and the cultures of the two firms mirrored each other. Working together we can be an even more powerful force in the legal marketplace.”
Both firms promote great technical skills, strong experience, an ethos of focusing on the importance of client relationships and a real desire to grow and develop their business. Walker Wallis had been enjoying a very strong first two years and was at a “crossroads” in terms of its next steps for growth. As a result, it was exactly the right time to merge. Walker Wallis’ successful – and growing – business has the support and additional capacity it needed to expand and develop from its Cambridge base.
The future for Greenwoods is exciting. Now with two offices across the region, the firm is looking to build on its strengths in Peterborough whilst supporting and developing its Cambridge office to reach its full potential, growing new markets and opportunities to work with great new clients as a result.
