A MERGER between established Yorkshire law firms Keeble Hawson and hlw Commercial Lawyers LLP will create one of the region’s biggest legal practices.
The new firm will be called hlw Keeble Hawson.
hlw Commercial Lawyers operate across Leeds and Sheffield with law firm Keeble Hawson working from offices in Leeds, Sheffield and Doncaster, offering services to businesses and individuals.
The milestone development taking effect from October 1 will provide legal services and a wealth of expertise in commercial, personal injury and private client practice areas.
The practice, with a team of around 250, will operate out of St James’ Row and Commercial Street in Sheffield, East Parade in Leeds and Princes Street in Doncaster.
Managing partner of Keeble Hawson, Paul Trudgill, said: “hlw’s experience and ethos strongly reflects our culture and our commitment to quality and excellence.
“Bringing both firms together presents a great opportunity to build on the quality of support we offer already as a full service law firm to our clients now and in the future across Yorkshire, whilst maintaining the close client relationships that are at the heart of our approach.”
