Churchers Solicitors, who maintain an office in Ryde, has today (Friday) confirmed the planned acquisition of fellow Isle of Wight firm, Walter Gray & Co.
Founded in 1888, Churchers Solicitors currently operates five south coast offices, in addition to Ryde, meaning this new association will provide a wider range of professional legal services to Isle of Wight residents and businesses.
Moving forward, the two Walter Gray offices in Ryde and Cowes will remain open and will be known as Churchers – Walter Gray.
Ian Robinson, (see photo) Managing Partner, Churchers Solicitors, said: “We are thrilled to be associated with such a well-respected law firm on the Isle of Wight. This move will give Island residents the same high quality service they have always received but they will now have access to a wider range of services and resources.
“Our investment in the Walter Gray brand will ensure continuity and future development enriching the services residents are already offered by this outstanding team.”
Rosemary Hardwicke, Senior Director of Walter Gray & Co, said: “We are passionate about serving the community on the Island and having the Churchers team alongside us will be able to offer more legal services whilst still giving the friendly and local service for which we are known. Our loyal staff very much look forward to working with their new colleagues at Churchers.”
