West Midlands firm Needham & James, which has offices in Birmingham and Stratford-upon-Avon, has taken over the niche commercial and corporate finance firm Hunt & Co. James Hunt, of the two-partner firm, left Needhams in 1992 to set up his own practice with Anthony Rudge. The two will become Needhams 11th and 12th partners.
