Law firm merger - Lawson West and Websters Solicitors

Law firm merger - Lawson West and Websters Solicitors


Leicestershire-based law firm Websters Solicitors has today announced it has merged with Lawson West Solicitors Limited.

The merger takes effect today, Friday 1st April 2022, building on Lawson West’s previous growth acquisition of Brown and Company Solicitors with whom it merged in Market Harborough in 2018.

The former Managing Director of Websters, Barry Webster, is known by many people in Leicestershire and over the past 22 years he has grown and developed his practice to be a highly regarded law firm operating from Quorn.

Barry Webster and his wife Tracey will now work alongside Lawson West’s established six-strong commercial property team, headed by experienced solicitor Rebecca Beswick, providing specific expertise to property clients across the region, widening the firm’s commercial property offering and further strengthening its commercial client base.

David Heys, Managing Director of Lawson West said of the merger:

I have known Websters for several years and I’m thrilled to welcome Barry and Tracey to work with Lawson West. They are both great assets in our combined business and they bring with them fantastic experience and proven commercial and private client skills.

Websters is a niche legal practice with an incredible local reputation for quality legal advice including outstanding commercial property expertise. I admire Barry’s superb levels of client service and in this regard our two firms are aligned. The culture at Lawson West is caring, helpful, supportive and respectful of clients and the integration of Websters and Lawson West joins together our mutual ambition to provide excellent client service.”

Barry Webster commented:

“I have been lucky enough to build my legal practice from its early origins as a new sole practitioner business, to be one of the best-known local providers of legal services in North Leicestershire. 

I’m very proud of the success of Websters Solicitors and not only of the team here and our legacy of advising clients on their specific legal needs, but also of how we have been able to nurture and help our clients to grow and expand in the region and further afield. Helping our clients to prosper is what it’s all about and it’s very rewarding for me personally to see their progress and to have been an important part in their development.

Now that Websters has transferred our business interests to Lawson West Solicitors, I’m confident that our former clients are in safe hands and will benefit from the extended resource of legal services that Lawson West offers and access to a wider network of legal experience and talent. I’m sure the clients who transfer to Lawson West will be pleased to see our joint commitment to quality, great client service and efficiency. It’s a really good fit with Lawson West.”
