Eleven-partner Uxbridge practice Turberville Woodbridge has split 14 years after it merged to create two new Uxbridge firms.
Eight of its 11 partners have formed Turbervilles, with Sess Sigre as senior partner and Russell Hallam as managing partner. It is based in two of the old firm's three offices in Uxbridge and Hillingdon.
The remaining three partners, Anthony Woodbridge, Geraldine Harwood and Nicholas Hampson, have set up The Woodbridge Partnership, in the third office, also in Uxbridge.
Shuba Mehta, an assistant at the old firm, has also joined as a partner, and a former partner at Turberville Woodbridge, Shelagh Testar, has returned to practice with the new firm as a partner.
Turberville Woodbridge was a broad-based practice handling commercial and private client work.
Robert Dixon, partner at Turbervilles, said his firm wanted to go in a more "commercially-oriented direction".
Woodbridge, senior partner of The Woodbridge Partnership, said his firm was keen to be "a smaller, more cohesive practice".
