Parker Bullen expands office base

Parker Bullen is expanding its offices in Salisbury and Andover by strengthening its existing bases in those locations. The members of the firm's former Southampton office merged with Bell Pope & Bridgewater, another firm in the city, and not the entire practice of Parker Bullen as reported in last week's The Lawyer. Parker Bullen, which has nine partners and 17 other fee earners is taking on four new assistant solicitors. The firm's practice manager, Malcolm Morton, says: “We will continue to offer a full range of private and corporate legal services in both our offices, in addition to the financial services arm recently created.”
