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.
It is Manby & Steward's first major merger since it opened its doors in 1825.
Woolley Beavon's two assistant solicitors and support staff will continue to operate from its offices. Manby & Steward senior partner Clive Williams said the retirement of Robbins was seen as a good time to forge an alliance.
