Well known solicitors' practice in acquisition deal

Long-established Shropshire law firm Terry Jones Solicitors, has been acquired by Metamorph Law Limited.

Founder and managing director Terry Jones, has been a well-known practitioner in the county for more than 40 years.

Having been a partner in a local firm, he started his own business in 2000 in Shrewsbury and subsequently expanded into Telford, Newport and Bridgnorth.

This acquisition strengthens Metamorph Law’s existing Shrewsbury offering, which currently trades under the Linder Myers brand, by bringing additional expertise in commercial and agricultural matters, a matrimonial, family and childcare team, a crime practice and further residential conveyancing and trust and estates resources.

Terry Jones will join the local Metamorph Law management team, working closely with Metamorph Law’s local leader and national head of trusts and estates, Richard Ashton, to integrate the two businesses.

Metamorph Law’s Group managing director Alan Webb said: "The acquisition of Terry Jones Solicitors adds further depth and quality to our operations and brings some of the leading legal teams in the area into our business. There is a great fit with our existing offering in Shropshire.

“It adds a fantastic and respected local brand to our stable and fits perfectly with our strategy to grow as a single business with multiple brands.”

Terry Jones said: “Having known some of the Metamorph Law senior management team for many years, I feel that the ethos and direction of Metamorph Law coincides with my own vision and objectives for the future.

“I am confident that joining Metamorph Law is the best way forward to ensure long term benefits for the clients, staff, and the brand that I have built up over many years.”

Richard Ashton added: “I have known and respected Terry for many years and am delighted now to have the opportunity to work alongside him to integrate and continue to develop and grow our business.”
