Metamorph Law has acquired leading Hampshire legal practice, Verisona Law, with offices in Portsmouth, Waterlooville and Gosport, the latter trading as Donnelly & Elliott.
This acquisition strengthens and enhances Metamorph Law’s existing South Coast offering by bringing additional expertise in commercial matters, a strong commercial property practice bolstered by Verisona Law’s recent acquisition of Donnelly & Elliott, and well-regarded, community- focused teams in matrimonial and family law, residential conveyancing, litigation and wills, trusts and probate. Metamorph Law’s existing Southampton office will now trade under the Verisona brand.
The deal is expected to add revenues of around £5m per annum.
Metamorph Group’s Executive Chairman, Tony Stockdale, commented: ‘The acquisition of Verisona Law adds further depth and quality to our operations and brings some of the leading legal teams in the area into our business. It adds a respected local brand to our stable and fits perfectly with our strategy to grow as a single business with multiple brands.’
Sue Ball, Managing Director of Verisona Law, will join the Metamorph management team, working closely with other offices within the group and comments: ‘We are very proud that Metamorph Law has seen such potential in all we have built and achieved over the past decade. Though there will be no difference in terms of our client service, being part of the group strengthens all Verisona Law has to offer and ensures a bright future for both our clients and highly valued staff.’
