Mayo Wynne Baxter, the leading firm of solicitors, is merging with Stuckey Carr and Co, another established law firm.

It is the third merger the law firm will have completed in the last two years, following the acquisition of Allen Ticehurst solicitors in East Grinstead during 2012, and Forest Row firm PR Vince last year.

The completion of this deal means Mayo Wynne Baxter will have eight offices in Sussex, including long-established bases in Eastbourne, Lewes and Brighton.

Stuckey Carr and Co was established in Sussex in 1843 and senior partner, Robin Carr, is the third generation of his family to have been at the firm. Along with partner, Peter Jones, Robin will remain as a consultant post-merger.

Chris Randall, Mayo Wynne Baxter’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted to announce the merger with Stuckey Carr and Co. This is a great move for both firms and is a further step towards Mayo Wynne Baxter being the dominant law firm in the county.”
