Paradise Square solicitors Graysons and Watson Esam are merging.
The two firms, which occupy offices on two sides of the historic square in the heart of Sheffield’s professional quarter, will join forces at the end of the month.
Graysons managing partner Peter Clark said: “We are confident that the merger of two such strong and respected firms will serve to enhance our services to clients, complementing our specialisms in personal injury, industrial disease and clinical negligence work and bolstering our family and private client expertise.
“We see this as a natural progression for both firms to address current challenges and to adapt to meet our clients’ needs.” Watson Esam managing partner, Kate Fitzpatrick, added: “This is the right time for our two firms, rooted in Sheffield, both with long traditions and shared values, to join forces. It is an excellent opportunity, utilising the proven skills of our joint teams to provide a comprehensive package of services for all our clients.”
Jay Bhayani, from Watson Esam, who is leaving to create a niche employment law practice, also gave her support to the merger, describing it as of great benefit to the two firms and their clients.
The merged firm will be based at Graysons offices at 4-12 Paradise Square and Saltergate, Chesterfield.
