Roebucks Solicitors, with offices in Blackburn, Accrington and Clitheroe have acquired The Lee Rigby Partnership of Leyland to form a formidable new legal presence covering the Blackburn, Hyndburn, Ribble Valley and South Ribble areas which will still be known as Roebucks Solicitors but will incorporate Lee Rigby Partnership LLP.
The acquisition has come about after some weeks of negotiation and 20 key Lee Rigby Partnership personnel have now joined forces with the team of 48 Roebucks solicitors and support staff. Simon Lloyd of Lee Rigby has joined the Board of Directors of Roebucks Solicitors Limited.
Robin Phoenix, Managing Director of Roebucks said, “We are delighted that our hard work has produced this great new partnership which will be positive for clients and staff members alike. Individually our companies were legal forces to be reckoned with and the new, larger Law Firm, with 5 offices across the regions, will capitalise on those reputations by providing a wider range of legal services throughout East Lancashire.”
Simon Lloyd of Lee Rigby added “These are exciting times for us and we are looking forward to working with Robin and his team on some great new initiatives. A stronger Law Firm with broader knowledge and experience can only benefit new and existing clients.”
Roebucks Solicitors is an all service Law Firm supporting Private and Commercial clients. With a history stretching back to 1909 they have served the people of the area with consistent service excellence.
They also acknowledge that a 21st Century Law Firm is subject to a pace of change not experienced by any previous generation of Law Firms. The coming together of these 2 Law Firms is a declaration of intent by the Directors that they wish to ‘future proof’ the company by fully embracing new ways of working and securing the livelihoods of all staff members.
