HBJ Gateley secures partnership approval for purchase of Halliwells' commercial practice

Halliwells has struck a deal with HBJ Gateley Wareing for the sale of the failed firm’s Manchester commercial practice, with the HBJ Gateley Wareing partnership signing off on the deal late last week. The commercial practice includes more than 300 staff across employment, intellectual property, construction, corporate, pensions and corporate recovery, and accounts. Hill Dickinson is still negotiating a deal for the purchase of Halliwells' Liverpool office, as well as half of the Sheffield practice, while Barlow Lyde & Gilbert has confirmed partnership approval of the purchase of Halliwells' Manchester insurance practice.
