Two of Kent’s long-established law firms have joined forces to provide unparalleled legal services to clients in Medway and the surrounding areas.
Winch & Winch has been incorporated into dgb Solicitors LLP, which is renowned throughout Kent for its expertise and very high standards of service and client care. Winch & Winch has similarly provided a high-quality legal service to clients in Medway and the surrounding areas for over 200 years. Since 2007 they have been Lexcel accredited, the Law Society’s legal practice quality mark awarded to firms that meet and maintain the highest management and client care standards.
dgb Solicitors incorporating Winch & Winch will continue to specialise in commercial property, residential property, wills, trusts and probate, and business sales and acquisitions. As a new partner of dgb, Tracey Smith will advise on repossession of residential property, property-related disputes, inheritance disputes and Court of Protection applications.
The new firm will be based at dgb’s prestigious offices at The Captain’s House in Chatham Maritime, whilst Winch & Winch’s offices at New Road Avenue, Chatham, will close.
Tracey Smith commented: “Everyone at Winch & Winch is excited and extremely positive about our merger with dgb; it is a great opportunity. The new firm will have greater resource and expertise that will undoubtedly benefit our mutual clients”.
Ian Pentecost, Chairman of dgb Solicitors LLP, said: “The commonality of the two firms is the ethos of a high quality and personal service. It has driven dgb for many years and is the cornerstone of our success. The new firm will deliver a wider range of legal advice to more clients across the county, but the emphasis will always be on achieving desired outcomes for our clients speedily, thoroughly and efficiently. We aim to provide a level of service that cannot be bettered”.
Nicholas Wharton retires from partnership after 40 years’ service, but will remain as a consultant to the new firm.
