Dickinson gains York base via merger

Dickinson Dees has established its first base in Yorkshire, following a merger with York-based corporate boutique Philip Ashworth & Co.

Led by existing Philip Ashworth & Co partners, Philip Ashworth and Christian Rogers, the new office will be operational from 1 February next year. Dickinson’s focus on York is an alternative approach to the Yorkshire market to that taken by local rivals such as Watson Burton, which have chosen to enter it via ultra-competitive Leeds.
