The acquisition of the three-agent team, supported by two solicitors and seven ancillary staff, will see Eversheds offer its clients specialist lawyers who can introduce and promote private bills through Parliament for the first time.
Monica Peto, Joseph Durkin and Stephen Collings, who join as partners, will also be able to act for clients as petitioners to oppose private bills. Rees & Freres was previously part of Westminster-based firm Lee Bolton Lee, which has now merged with Lincoln's Inn firm Brown Cooper Monier-Williams to create Lee Bolton Monier-Williams.
The head of the UK's largest parliamentary agents practice Robbie Owen at Bircham Dyson Bell said the move would not change the market significantly.
