Top regional law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR), which has its headquarters in Worcester, has completed its merger with 176-year old firm Hewitsons. The two firms will work together as from today.

Managing partner Rod Thomas said: “We are pleased both that the merger has been completed successfully and that it has been received positively by the staff and clients of both firms.”

Colin Jones, former managing partner of Hewitsons, said: “We all recognise the strengths each party brings to this merger and we’re looking forward to developing those further across a wider network.”

The merger brings the two firms together into a firm of approximately 780 people and £65m turnover.
