Dear Editor, The Wolverhampton Law Society is truly saddened by the demise of Hall Pratt and Pritchard solicitors as reported in the Post. It was reported in a local newspaper the closure could herald the demise of smaller firms thereby implying “big is beautiful”.

This is not necessarily the case when it comes to the provision of local legal services. We are fortunate in Wolverhampton to have a strong and diverse community of law firms which has proved to be most resilient despite the recession. As President I should know as I have the privilege to represent upwards of 50 such firms both large and small.

Nick Wynn-Williams,
President Wolverhampton Law Society.
