Two law firms have joined forces to strengthen their offering across the region.

Spratt Endicott Solicitors will retain its existing office in Brackley and Banbury.

But a new merger with Alfred Truman Solicitors will see offices in both Bicester and Buckingham become known as Spratt Endicott Truman Solicitors.

John Spratt, partner at Spratt Endicott, said: “This merger is between two established law firms who want to work together in offering clients a broader range of expertise and improved access to that expertise.

“Our vision is to maintain and grow our reputation as a respected law firm delivering personalised legal services.

“We want to enjoy success and growth for our clients, our firm and our business partners.”

Howard Meakin, partner at Alfred Truman Solicitors, said: “This merger is a really good opportunity for both companies.

“We are proud of Alfred Truman’s heritage and excellent reputation.

“But we also understand that clients need a broad spectrum of specialist expertise.

“We are delighted to now be joining with a firm which is large enough to offer a full range of expertise, whilst still sharing our values and commitment to client service.”

The two companies will now trade together with a combined turnover of £6m, employing more than 100 people.

The company plans to grow the business by 15 per cent a year going forward.

The firms provide a full range of legal expertise across ten departments.

Specialities include commercial and corporate law, dispute resolution, employment and debt recovery.
