In brief: Leicester merger to form Hill Flynn Law

Leicester firms Hill Flynn and Law & Co are merging to become Hill Flynn Law. The partners of the new firm, Robert Flynn and Niall Greene, set up Hill Flynn in 1989 after splitting from Geoffrey Hill & Co of Hinkley. At 33 and 29 years of age, they claim they were the youngest solicitors running a practice in the county. Law & Co was established in 1962 by mutual friends Derek Law and John Callaghan, who will retire when the firms merge.
