The tie-up adds 13 people, including three partners, to the firm’s regional property, wills and trusts teams and signals further growth for the firm in Lancashire following its merger with Rostron’s in 2009 and Apfel Carter in 2010.

The firm has also announced that it has merged with Chester-based Drummonds Solicitors, a 27-strong practice with a national client-base delivering both private and commercial legal services.

The mergers follow Linder Myer’s acquisition of SNG Commercial Law in September and will boost its total annual turnover to £19.7m, says the firm.

“We are well underway to achieving our target total fee income of £25m by 2015 and will continue to actively seek other firms to build on both critical mass, expertise, and further broaden Linder Myers’ range of legal services,” said Bernard Seymour, managing partner at Linder Myers.

“Drummonds, Senior Calveley & Hardy and SNG Commercial Law have well-established reputations in their respective markets and together form a significant boost to Linder Myers’ existing offer as we penetrate new markets and strengthen our services to local clients.”

Linder Myers now has a total headcount of 315 employees including 51 partners across its offices in Manchester, Shropshire, Lancashire and Cheshire.
