Long-standing Wolverhampton firms Manby & Steward and Woolley Beavon have merged.
Two of Woolley Beavon's three partners will join seven other partners at the merged firm which will retain the name Manby & Steward. Woolley Beavon's third partner, John Robbins, who has recently retired, will act as a consultant.
