Penningtons has acquired niche travel and tourism practice Andrea & Co, led by senior partner Costas Andrea.
Andrea, plus six fee-earners and support staff, will join Penningtons’ Godalming office in southwest Surrey on 1 November.
The firm has mainly performed litigation work for claimants involved in accidents abroad. Clients include healthcare staffing company FirstAssist, plus individuals and groups.
David Raine, managing partner of Penningtons’ Godalming office, said: “The merger is further evidence of our strategic plan to merge with firms in specialist areas.”
Andrea commented: “The merger will enable us to spend more time servicing and developing clients in the travel industry. It will also allow us to provide a full legal service to our clients, rather than just litigation advice and representation.”
