May 2008 saw Wolverhampton’s foremost removals company, Burke Bros Moving Groupwww.burkebros.co.uk giving a helping hand as two large local legal heavyweights united.
West Midlands based law firm heavyweights Manby Steward Bowdler and FBC solicitors recently merged to create the new FBC Manby Bowdler LLP www.fbcmb.co.uk. This move certainly caused a logistical stir. The merger, which has now created a regional practice of over 300 people, generated a demanding need for fast and efficient office moving services.
As one of the UK’s leading independent residential and commercial office moving companies, Wolverhampton’s Burke Bros Moving Group was FBC Manby Bowdler’s first choice for making the moves a practical reality, with all the office removal work it generated.
It also had a second significance for Burke Bros, as over the past 27 years they’ve usually been working to help people move home, who have been using the conveyancing services of the two large solicitor practices, but this time it was the solicitors turn to be assisted by Burke Bros’s removal services.
Burke Bros MD, Gary Burke said: “We were delighted to have been chosen to undertake all the office removal work for the big merger, especially involving such a large number of personnel.”
With office locations within the West Midlands and Shropshire areas, spread over five separate locations, the practice will be delivering specialist legal advice akin to what would be expected from a city-centre firm.
FBC Manby Bowdler Senior Partner Gavin Southall says: “Our Vision has always been to be the legal practice of first choice, west of Birmingham. This latest merger expands our expertise, strength and depth, and footprint, which makes us one of the most prominent and progressive practices in the West Midlands with clients from all over the country.”
FBC Manby Bowdler Managing Partner, Kim Carr added: “We’d like to thank the entire removals and packing team at Burke Bros for helping us with a large and logistically challenging series of office moves. Although this merger is a very exciting time for us, as it involved five separate office locations and 300 personnel, we needed to make sure it was business as usual with as little fuss or disruption as possible. Burke Bros were a big factor in making sure we settled all of our staff as quickly and efficiently as we could. I’d like to personally thank Burke Bros for meeting all our challenging needs and for making the transition a smooth and successful one.”
Burke Bros Director, Chris Burke says: “This move challenged us to our limits and its successful conclusion was a testament to the professionalism and skills of both our logistics team and hands-on packing and removals crew.” He added: “I’d like to thank my entire team for all their hard work and teamwork in making this a very successful move for FBC Manby Bowdler LLP.”
Gary Burke added: “We wish to offer our congratulations to FBC Manby Bowdler on their new merger, and having completed all their business removal needs, hope that all their staff settle down well in their new office environments.”
