And which comes first – the Pritchard or the Eggar?
Spring has finally sprung (at the time of writing) and the sun is definitely shining in the south for Thomas Eggar this month. It has finally found the perfect match for its long-awaited London merger.
The creative and ‘inspirational’ firm, which has been eyeing up expansion in the capital and beyond since 2010, joined forces with continental-friendly firm Pritchard Englefield on 1 May. They’ll be known as ‘Thomas Eggar incorporating Pritchard Englefield’, which suggests who’ll be wearing the trousers in this relationship.
Renowned for its award-winning private client work, the strategic union will give Thomas Eggar access to its new partner’s expertise in Anglo-German and Anglo-French trade, finance and commerce. But as with all good relationships, the merger is a two-way street. Pritchards will gain the opportunities to deliver an even better offering to its UK and international clients. And together, the new look firm will start to develop additional specialist teams, including Financial Services.
Thomas Eggar’s Managing Partner, Vicky Brackett commented:
This is an important time for the firm as our brand and our reputation in the market continues to grow. The culture and values of the firms are strongly aligned, the teams are technically excellent and the client base of both firms is very complementary. As a newly merged firm, we have an excellent base from which to further focus our offering to the market.
Keeping one eye firmly on the future, Thomas Eggar has been making a number of lateral hires into its London office over the last year, creating an impressive international tax team. But the firm’s appetite for growth has not stopped there – find out about all the latest opportunities on Professionals in Law. KM
