Gloucestershire solicitors DF Legal is taking on new offices in Gloucester and Newent, following its merger with one of Gloucester’s oldest established independent law firms, Madge, Lloyd & Gibson.
The move will give all clients access to its growing range of services, including litigation, contested probate, family law advice and assistance, employment and immigration law expertise.
Staff numbers have now reached 37, including four partners.
Jo May, managing partner of DF Legal LLP, said: ‘The merger of these two very well established local practises is the perfect fit, bringing together a considerable wealth of knowledge and experience spanning over 150 years.
‘Jointly, we will continue to deliver the same professional and personal service we have always done, putting our clients first and adhering to traditional values whilst also offering the wider range of services and support to clients in our new areas of Gloucester and Newent.’
DF Legal was established in 1981 by solicitors John Daniels (who retired in 2016) and David Ferraby (based at the Stroud office) and provides advice and assistance to individuals, businesses, companies and charities.
It has offices across Gloucestershire, covering Tewkesbury, Ledbury, Cheltenham and Stroud, offering core legal services along with specialist advice.
Madge, Lloyd & Gibson was founded 150 years ago. It is headed up by solicitors Andrew Bishop, who will work as a consultant for the firm, and Eleanor Taylor, who becomes a partner in the new business.
