Birmingham law firm Davies and Partners is expanding its operations to London after merging with a West End practice.
The firm has merged with McEwen Parkinson and its new London office in Harley Street will operate during the first year under the name Davies and Partners Solicitors incorporating McEwen Parkinson.
Davies and Partners’ corporate development partner Ewan Lockhart has become managing partner in London, while McEwen Parkinson’s partners Greg McEwen and Tim Parkinson will remain at the firm.
McEwen Parkinson was formed in the 1950s as LB Marks & Co and has been in its present form since May 1993.
The firm‘s reputation and success has been generated through services it provides for its predominantly corporate clients, particularly in the IT and property sectors. Davies and Partners chairman Tom Brennan said: “The development provides an important resource for our existing clients and enables our expanded team to provide the same high quality legal services we have offered clients for over 25 years, to new clients in London and the South East.”
