LAW firms Harrison Clark and Shawcross and Co are celebrating their first anniversary as a joint firm.

Worcestershire’s Harrison Clark merged with Herefordshire-based Shawcross in July last year.

The move also saw Harrison Clark’s growth continue and the firm now has a total of 220 staff and partners who are based in Ross-on-Wye, Hereford, Worcester and Cheltenham.

Andrew Caldicott, partner and head of the Harrison Clark Shawcross office, said: “Although both practices have been established for a combined total of 300 years, this year has perhaps seen the most significant developments for Shawcross and Harrison Clark.

"The anniversary provides an opportunity to recall and celebrate our achievements since joining forces – and it has been quite a year. Our combined strength has already shown impressive results and enabled us to deliver an even better value and quality service.”
