Baker Tilly’s M&A team has advised solicitors Walker Smith Way on the planned sale of their business to law firm Slater and Gordon.

Slater and Gordon is one of the UK’s largest law firms with around 1,500 staff and 18 offices across the UK, whilst Walker Smith Way is based in Chester, with offices across the North-West and North Wales.

James Wild and Nick Wyatt from Baker Tilly Corporate Finance led the transaction, and tax advice was provided by Colin Smyth and Malcolm Cook.

In 2013, Baker Tilly previously advised personal injury law firm, Fentons Solicitors LLP, in relation to the sale of its business to Slater & Gordon.
