"Lewis Onions Solicitors has been a well-known and respected firm in Birmingham for over two decades, so this is a meeting of minds and alignment of ambitions.

"This acquisition will expand our services to clients with Lewis's team bringing substantial restructuring and insolvency experience to supplement Lauren Hartigan-Pritchard and her team. At the same time, we can offer Lewis' clients a full range of services from our employment, property and corporate teams that previously the team would have needed to refer elsewhere.
