Law firms Mogers and Dyne Drewett go back to the future for their merged name

May 28, 2014

Law firms Mogers, which is based in Bath, and Dyne Drewett, with offices in Dorset and Somerset, has announced the name they will use after their merger officially takes effect on next week.

The combined firm will be called Mogers Drewett – a name they say takes into account both firms’ heritage.

The new name and branding were unveiled yesterday at the Royal Bath and West Show in Shepton Mallet.

Dyne Drewett has just over 50 staff and five partners while Mogers also has five partners and slightly less than 50 staff. All partners and staff are staying in the merged firm.

Dyne Drewett’s existing plans to close its Shepton Mallet office and relocate its staff to Wells has continued under the planned merger. The new Wells office opens later this week.

Moger’s managing partner Steven Treharne, who will have the same role at the merged firm, said: “Both companies can trace their histories back to the 19th century and it is right that the names should live on.

“We are proud of our heritage yet as with all fast-growing businesses, we are focused on the future and our clients are at the heart of what we do. We believe at being at their side when our advice and assistance is needed.

“This merger, which comes into effect next week, is an exciting development that will allow us to increase our reach within the communities we serve yet ensure our clients, existing and future, receive the personal touch we believe is so important.

“We decided to announce our new name at the Royal Bath and West Show as it is an iconic West Country event which, like the new company, also has its heritage steeped in Bath and Somerset. We are also sponsor of the Senior Open showjumping.”

The merger – the latest in a series of tie-ups in the UK legal market – was announced in February.

Speaking to Bath Business News at the time, Mr Treharne, pictured, said the merger was a natural fit designed to create a strong business with growth ambitions in its heartland of Bath, Somerset and Dorset. It will have offices in Bath, Sherborne, Wells and Frome.

Mr Treharne, who has been at Mogers for more than 20 years, said both firms offered significant private client, agricultural, corporate and business services. Both had bucked the downturn with expansion and recruitment, he added.

Also this week Bath-headquartered law firm Withy King announced it is to merge with small Swindon practice Lemon & Co as part of its continued expansion.
