Name Change for Doncaster Law Firm Following Acquisition

Doncaster-based Atherton Godfrey LLP has formally changed its name, as it becomes fully integrated with the Switalskis group following an acquisition in 2021.
A well-respected firm throughout South Yorkshire, with a 44-year history, Atherton Godfrey was acquired by the Yorkshire law firm two years ago in January, a move that took it into the Top 150 UK law firms.
The business continues to offer the same excellent service to clients, covering many of the legal services required by individuals, families, organisations, and businesses, from its office on Hall Gate in Doncaster, where signage was recently updated to reflect the name change.
As part of the Switalskis group, its team also benefits from being part of a wider group with additional offices, expertise, connections and resources throughout the Yorkshire region and also in London.
Sarah Naylor, Director at Switalskis Solicitors, formerly Atherton Godfrey, says: “We took the decision to join the Switalskis group with a long-term aim of moving towards full integration on behalf of the firm for commercial reasons. We wanted to come under the umbrella of a larger practice to ensure that our teams could continue to offer an excellent service. The most significant change is that we now have access to a much larger team of experienced legal professionals.
“Integrating the firm with Switalskis has been a very carefully planned process, with the best interests of all our clients of paramount consideration throughout, and it has now culminated after two years in the switch from Atherton Godfrey to Switalskis Solicitors on the 1st December 2022.”
