Wedlake Bell and Moon Beever to merge


Wedlake Bell LLP and Moon Beever LLP have agreed to merge their businesses with effect from 12 July this year.

Wedlake Bell is a top 100 City law firm with core strengths across Private Client, Real Estate, Business Services and Dispute Resolution. The firm has 60 Partners operating from its central City of London location near St Pauls. 

Moon Beever is well known for its insolvency and restructuring work where the firm has built a market leading reputation, as well as first class practices in Private Client, Utilities and Real Estate. The firm has 11 Partners based at its Gray’s Inn offices in the heart of legal London. 

Frances Coulson, Managing Partner of Moon Beever, says: “This is a very exciting opportunity, one which opens up enormous potential for growth at a time of unprecedented change. Wedlake Bell and Moon Beever are a strong cultural fit and this merger will allow both firms to enhance the strength and depth of the services that our clients require.”

Martin Arnold, Managing Partner of Wedlake Bell, adds: “We are delighted to be joining forces with Moon Beever. The merged firm will enable us to enhance the offering to our clients in some of our core business areas – notably insolvency and restructuring, disputes, commercial property and private client.  Clients will be able to access the full range of high-quality legal advice and services and the growth of our contentious practice, in particular, continues to future proof against a challenging and fast moving economic and operational environment.

“We look forward to welcoming Frances Coulson and Charles Robinson to the merged firm’s Management Board, further strengthening our strategic insight and operational abilities.  It’s a very exciting step and we are looking forward to building a future as one firm.”

The merged firm will bring together 71 Partners and a total complement of 217 lawyers.
