UK 200 2013 position: 25

Wragge & Co merges with Lawrence Graham

New law firm Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co was launched on 1 May. According to the firm’s chief executive David Fennell, the merger of Wragge & Co with Lawrence Graham brings together complementary cultures, locations and practice groups to create a strong and distinctive offer to clients.

The new firm offers a broader range of services, increased capability in London and the UK and enhanced international coverage.

Home to top-tier real estate, equity capital markets, investment funds, private capital, intellectual property (IP), pensions and construction experts, it has 1,300 people, including 770 lawyers, operating from 10 offices worldwide.

Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co says that it is home to one of the UK’s largest real-estate practices: a strong, broad-based practice acting for institutions, investors, developers and occupiers.

In dispute resolution, the merger brings together Wragge & Co’s strengths in IP, construction and commercial litigation with Lawrence Graham’s focus on international disputes, particularly in the areas of fraud/asset tracing, contentious trusts and insurance/reinsurance.

The new firm will also offer clients access to Wragge & Co’s award-winning pensions experts and Lawrence Graham’s highly rated private capital team, which advises UK and international high-net-worth individuals.

The firm has offices in 10 locations — Birmingham, Brussels, Dubai, Guangzhou, London, Monaco, Moscow, Munich, Paris and Singapore — plus trusted networks across the world.
