South west Wales law firm JCP Solicitors has acquired Glamorgan Law in a move that expands its reach across South Wales.
JCP Solicitors has already positioned itself as a leading legal businesses in the region, with offices Swansea, Carmarthen and throughout Pembrokeshire.
The coming together of the two businesses will see JCP Solicitors extend its geographical reach throughout south east Wales, by investing in Glamorgan Law’s existing offices in Caerphilly, Cardiff, Cowbridge and Pontypridd.
Glamorgan Law brings with it 8 directors and 50 additional members of staff, with senior partners Peter Davies and Richard Beech taking equity in JCP.
The value of the deal has not been disclosed.
The newly merged law firm will have a turnover in excess of £10m. The deal is projected to make it one of the UK’s top 200 law firms.

JCP director and chief executive, Hayley Davies, said: “We are very pleased to announce the continued expansion of JCP Solicitors via our merger with Glamorgan Law.
“Growth has always been our strategy, but the hallmark of all of our mergers has been to ensure that any new alliance completely emulates the JCP ethos, culture and client offering.
“This merger sees us broaden into a new area geographically but we will continue to retain and nurture the strong community ties to all the areas in which we operate.
“The very strong personal relationships that we enjoy with our clients throughout South and West Wales are important to us.
“This merger creates opportunities for further career progression for team members at both JCP Solicitors and Glamorgan Law.
