Russell & Co Merger 2019

On Tuesday 7th May 2019, we further strengthened our position as the leading law firm in Sussex when we merged with established Crawley law firm, Russell & Co.

This merger is the fourth that we have completed in recent years having previously added offices in East Grinstead, Storrington and Pulborough.

The completion of this deal means that Mayo Wynne Baxter now has eight offices in Sussex including those long-established bases in Eastbourne, Seaford, Lewes and Brighton.

Russell & Co has been serving the Crawley community since 1987 and share the Mayo Wynne Baxter brand values of delivering exceptional service through outstanding people. Partners Alison Kinnersley and Grant Parker and their team bring a wealth of experience to Mayo Wynne Baxter.

Our Chief Executive, Chris Randall, said: “We are delighted to announce the merger with Russell & Co. This is a great move for both firms and means that clients in Crawley will have access to a much broader range of legal services.

“This central Crawley office in Queens Square extends our reach into West Sussex and is a further step towards Mayo Wynne Baxter being the dominant law firm in the county.”

The announcement of this merger follows previous news that the firm has invested heavily in communications and information technology to further improve its existing industry-leading client service delivery. This is to be further enhanced by the introduction of a secure web portal to allow clients to have direct 24-hour access to their matter

The new Crawley office will benefit from these enhancements and Crawley clients will be offered the firm’s innovative Satisfaction Guarantee whereby if they are not completely satisfied with the service received, they can deduct up to a maximum of 20% off their fee. No quibble.  

Mayo Wynne Baxter has had a long standing association with Crawley and has been a main sponsor at Crawley Town FC since 2013 and operated an office at The Beehive in Gatwick. They are Diamond listed by the Gatwick Diamond Business Association and are previous winners of the Gatwick Diamond Business Award for Corporate Responsibility.
