Kent-based Cripps Harries Hall and Vertex Law will merge at the end of September to form a new firm of 45 partners and 260 staff.

Cripps Harries Hall managing partner Gavin Tyler said the move would double the size of its corporate and commercial practices and provide a better balance to its key areas of private client, real estate and corporate.

"I am really excited at the prospect of this merger. We have been looking to grow and this merger with Vertex Law is one that makes a lot of sense to us. Their practice complements ours perfectly," he said.

"The Vertex Law partners and staff have an entrepreneurial client base and approach, operating in the same or complementary sectors to ours, including technology and healthcare."

James Beatton, one of the founders of Vertex Law, added: "Both firms share similar strategic goals and are financially robust, so pooling our resources makes complete sense and establishes a strong basis for further regional growth."

The two firms will trade under their respective names until the businesses are fully integrated. The Vertex Law team remains at Kings Hill in Kent. Cripps' office is in Tunbridge Wells.
