LINCOLN-BASED FIRM Wright Vigar has expanded its practice by acquiring rival firm McGregors Corporate.
The deal will see Wright Vigar take on 400 extra clients, which will grow its city office by 20% in revenues.
McGregors’ nine staff will join the existing 43 at Wright’s Newland headquarters.
“The team that is joining us has clients very similar to our own and shares the same ethos of looking after its clients,” said Chris Shelbourne, (pictured) managing director of Wright Vigar.
“In spite of the recession, we have found more businesses wanting to use us to help them deal with the pressures of the current economic situation and the added resource will help us and our clients continue to grow, despite challenging times.”
