Fox Rodney, the London based market leader in international legal search and recruitment, has launched a specialist Mergers division to service the increasing levels of merger activity in the UK legal sector.

The Company has observed substantial growth in law firm mergers in recent years and believes that this sector will continue to experience further expansion.

Fox Rodney has created a Mergers division to meet this demand within the market and to deliver the specialist services needed by law firms to make a success of a nuanced process.

Brandon Ransley has been recruited by Fox Rodney to spearhead the growth of its Mergers division.  He has first-hand experience of leading law firm mergers and acquisitions from his roles as Managing Partner of Dentons UK (where he led the negotiations for a successful merger with Maclay Murray & Spens), and previously as Managing Partner of Howes Percival (where he was instrumental in the move of a 50-person team to Dentons UK).

Accordingly, Ransley is highly experienced in the intricacies of mergers and is skilled at balancing the various factors required to achieve success, including with partnership engagement, managing team morale and ensuring client retention.

Working with Ransley is James Quick who is experienced at brokering law firm mergers for UK law firms with revenue under £100m, as well as advising on large team moves and international office openings.

Ransley’s mergers experience in both a small/medium regional law firm and also a larger City/Global firm, together with Quick’s merger, team move and recruitment experience, means that Fox Rodney is fully equipped to offer the full spectrum of commercial advice on the key elements of any merger process.

The Mergers division sits within Fox Rodney’s wider offering to the legal market which includes partner searches, associate searches, office openings and general counsel/in-house recruitment for financial services and corporates.

Fox Rodney’s CEO, Tim Hammett says:

“Launching our Mergers division is an exciting step for Fox Rodney.  We already provide tailored legal recruitment and search services to the legal market and we are extending our services to offer bespoke support to the mergers and acquisitions sector.  The legal sector is seeing substantial growth within the mergers field and Fox Rodney’s experience makes us a trusted adviser to clients for this detailed process.”
