Moon Beever and Wedlake Bell to merge

Insolvency and restructuring business Moon Beever has announced it will be merging with law firm Wedlake Bell, taking effect from 12 July 2021.

Moon Beever’s senior partner Frances Coulson said the move will enable them to continue to “futureproof against a challenging and fast-moving economic and operational environment”.

Wedlake Bell is a city law firm that works across the private client, real estate, business services and dispute resolution markets, with it having 60 partners operating in central London. Moon Beever, meanwhile, is known for its “market-leading reputation” in the insolvency and restructuring space. Additionally the company, which has 11 partners who are also based in London, is involved in the private client, utilities and real estate markets.

Commenting on the news, Coulson said: “Wedlake Bell and Moon Beever are a strong cultural fit and this merger will allow both firms to enhance the strength and depth of services that our clients require. Our clients will enjoy continuity of service with our lawyers and support staff as well as having access to a wider range of specialisms in the merged firm.”

Wedlake Bell managing partner Martin Arnold added: “The merged firm will enable us to enhance the offering to our clients in some of our core business areas - notably insolvency and restructuring, disputes, commercial property and private client. Clients will be able to access the full range of high-quality legal advice and services and the growth of our contentious practice, in particular, continues to futureproof against a challenging and fast-moving economic and operational environment.”

The merged firm will bring together 71 partners and a total complement of 217 lawyers.
