UK firms plan July tie-up

June 22, 2015 Two UK firms are en route to a 1 July merger. Cambridge firm Hewitsons and London-based Moorhead James held partnership votes earlier this month, resulting in the decision to form the new firm. The new firm will operate as Hewitson Moorhead and is expected to have revenue of £16m. The firm will have offices in Cambridge, London, Northampton, and Milton Keynes.

Colin Jones, the current managing partner at Hewitsons, will continue his position in the newly-merged firm. Christine Bowyer-Jones, currently joint managing partner at Moorhead James, will take a seat on the new firm's management board and help to lead its London office. David James, currently joint managing partner alongside Bowyer-Jones, will relinquish a management role and practice full time as a partner at the firm.

The merger had been discussed for well over a year. Hewitsons had been courting multiple firms to discuss potential mergers before the deal with Moorhead James was completed.
