East Midlands firm Flint Bishop has acquired niche Derby private client and property firm Robotham & Co.
The latter has been in existence for 150 years and until the takeover was run by the fifth generation of the Robotham family.
Managing partner of Flint Bishop Ken Dixon said: “The client base that Robotham has established since opening its Derby office in 1837 is a veritable showcase of prominent Derbyshire families. We have no plans to rebrand them as Flint Bishop, instead we’ll be maintaining the firm’s independent identity and cherishing its brand name.”
