The integrated group will have 629 staff including 125 partners, a network of ten offices nationally and a total revenue approaching £50m.

Oxford-based Henmans is a leading force in the charity, private client, agricultural services and insurance sectors and has over the past 120 years grown into one of the largest law firms in the Thames Valley.

Freeth Cartwright LLP is a national firm offering a wide range of services to both the commercial and private client sectors. It has offices in Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Sheffield and Stoke on Trent.

Malcolm Sadler, senior partner at Henmans, said: “This merger presents us with an opportunity to expand our client base across the country. By combining our resources, Henmans and Freeth Cartwright will become a key player among the UK’s top law firms.

“This is a very exciting time for Henmans and we very much look forward to the opportunities this merger will provide.”

Peter Smith, chief executive at Freeth Cartwright, said: “This merger is a major step forward for both firms in achieving our long-term strategic objectives and strengthens the services we are able to offer our clients. We very much look forward to working together in our project to become a leading national firm.”

Henmans will remain a separate entity until it rebrands as Henmans Freeth once the merger takes effect from February 2013.
