The purchase is expected to increase turnover levels by more than 20 per cent in the first year and expand the 200-year-old firm’s services across the region.
MacNamara King Solicitors, which has bases in Warwick, Balsall Common and Southam, has been operating for around 15 years. It offers conveyancing, wills & probate, commercial, commercial property, family, and motoring offences.
The firm said that the combined talent will also allow the business to diversify into new areas. The acquisition will see all offices remain open and increase BTTJ’s workforce to 70, while an estimated five job opportunities will open up in the first year.
The deal, which was completed during lockdown, has been welcomed by Samantha Wright, Senior Partner of BTTJ and Siobhan MacNamara senior partner of MacNamara King, who said a restructure within the business has allowed both firms to join forces for the benefit of both firms’ clients and employees.
Samantha Wright said: “This is a major development for BTTJ, and we look forward to expanding our capacity and capabilities as well as extending our range of services and introducing our specialist expertise across all offices through this acquisition.
“The past few months have not been without challenges, for both firms, but even in these difficult times, BTTJ and MacNamara King have been committed to moving forward with its expansion plans – all while adapting to new ways of working for the benefit of both clients and employees.
“We have remained open throughout the COVID-19 epidemic to ensure consistency of service to our clients adhering to safe practice by arranging to either hold meetings remotely or via Zoom. It has worked extremely well, and we will continue to operate in a safe and socially distanced way for the protection of both our staff and clients both in Coventry and at all of our new sites.”
MacNamara King will be incorporated into BTTJ and the business will become Brindley Twist Tafft & James – taking the number of offices across Coventry and Warwickshire to four. MacNamara King partner Siobhan MacNamara will be joining BTTJ as a Consultant.
Samantha Wright added: “This acquisition opens up a host of opportunities for both firms and its clients. MacNamara King is a well-respected and established business, housing a great deal of talent.
“We look forward to welcoming every member of the workforce to our team and growing the business in the years to come.”
With more than 200 years of experience – dating back to 1797 – BTTJ is renowned for providing a first-class service.
