Two Plymouth law firms have amalgamated – and celebrated with the help of a furry friend.
Wolfie, the mascot, helped mark the joining of Wolferstans Solicitors with Clark & Weeks Solicitors.
North Hill-headquartered Wolferstans will now turn the other firm’s offices in the Ridgeway into a new Wolferstans branch.
The newly branded firm will continue to operate from the same premises Clark & Weeks used in the heart of Plympton.
The newly merged entity said the range of services and support delivered to clients will be enhanced whilst retaining the detailed care and attention enjoyed by Clark & Weeks clients since the office opened 20 years ago.
Martin Weeks will become a partner of the newly merged firms whilst Tony Clark and Pam Millett will become consultants.

The merger will also result in the firm having one of the largest residential conveyancing departments in Plymouth, with a total of 31 professionals, comprising qualified solicitors, chartered legal executives and a licensed conveyancer, together with experienced and knowledgeable support staff.
John Chapman, senior partner at Wolferstans, said “We are delighted to be amalgamating with Clark & Weeks in such a thriving community as Plympton.
“We welcome all our new clients and staff and look forward to the many opportunities this will present.”
