Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire based solicitors, Wilkin Chapman LLP, and Hull based law firm, Carrick Read Solicitors, have announced that the two firms will merge on the 1st July 2013. Wilkin Chapman LLP, is already the largest law firm in the East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire area and bringing the Carrick Read partners and staff into the East Yorkshire office, based in Beverley will consolidate this even further, taking the firm to 44 partners and 302 staff.
Linetime’s practice and case management systems are currently used throughout the practice to support all areas of work and the use of Linetime’s systems will be further expanded to support the enlarged firm following the merger. Julia Whittaker, Partner and Chief Executive comments – ‘We are looking forward to our merger with Carrick Read and to working with them in the future. We have an excellent relationship with Linetime which has been established since our last merger with Grange Wintringham in 2010. A central IT system is core to our legal business in terms of efficiency and it helps us to generate effective time management, keeping client information and documentation in one place’.
