Merger strengthens HCR and Sprecher Grier

Law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR) has merged with London firm Sprecher Grier, bringing it growth in the London market and giving the London firm a broader range of services – HCR has eight offices across the country, including in Worcester and Hereford, and Sprecher Grier has a significant restructuring and insolvency (R&I) presence in London.

The move brings former colleagues back together – Sam Payne, head of HCR’s R&I team, worked with many of the London firm’s team several years ago, especially partner Daniel Sejas. Sam will lead the merged firm’s R&I practice, and Daniel will lead the London restructuring & insolvency practice.

Sam said: “This merger will significantly boost the continued growth of HCR’s London office and bring together two firms with excellent reputations. HCR’s London team will move into Sprecher Grier’s existing offices off Bishopsgate – a great base for future development.”

HCR will keep its name outside London; in the capital it will be Harrison Clark Rickerbys inc Sprecher Grier.
