We’re delighted to announce that Watson Ramsbottom has acquired Carters Solicitors LLP, a long established and well renowned practice in Pontefract, West Yorkshire.
The acquisition of Carters extends the reach of Watson Ramsbottom Ltd across the North of England, with a presence in Yorkshire helping the practice expand further following strong recent growth.
Following the acquisition, the Carters name will remain. Its long established Ropergate office in Pontefract, where the firm has been based for over 150 years, will continue to operate as Carters Solicitors, and all staff are to be retained, with former managing partner Anne Caswell joining Watson Ramsbottom as a director and heading up the Pontefract office.
Managing Director Elton Ashworth said “We’re delighted to have been able to make this acquisition, especially at a time of such uncertainty, and help to safeguard the jobs of all existing Carters staff. We’d been looking to make the step to expand into Yorkshire and when we met with the management team it was clear their values and outlook matched our own.
“The acquisition allows us to expand and progress the practice’s growth plan whilst improving on the level of service we provide to our existing clients.
“At the same time, Carters clients can still expect the same dedicated, friendly and approachable service that has been at the heart of Carters’ offering since 1858, but as part of the Watson Ramsbottom family, the capacity and level of experience they now have to draw on across any legal issue is second to none.”
