In brief: Merger boosts private client work

London firm Gregory, Rowcliffe & Milners has amalgamated with the partnership of Pettit & Westlake to form a specialist private client and litigation practice. Partners Peter and Morwen Pettit have taken their staff to the 1 Bedford Row offices of Gregorys, which will remain as the practice name. Gregorys has strong international links with an Anglo-German bias. Established in 1784, it has always practised from the same offices.
