In brief: Surrey firms merge for broad practice

Surrey firms Coleman Tilley and Tarrant Sutton merged at the start of this month in a drive to create a broad-based practice. Coleman Tilley deals with road traffic, personal injury and motor accidents. Tarrant Sutton specialises in debt recovery and property law. Partner Tony Sutton said: “The intention is to create a broad-based practice whilst still retaining our specialist areas.” The new firm has four partners and will be known as Coleman Tilley Tarrant Sutton. It operates from a new office in Kingston-upon-Thames, with associated offices in Manchester and the West Midlands.
