As a part of the deal, Nick Ledingham and Desirie Lea will continue to lead Morris’ business, continuing the group’s existing client relationships.
While the more than seventy-strong Morris team will continue to operate from Cheshire Oaks Business Park, DJH Mitten Clarke has acquired the Chester House offices through the transaction.
Ledingham said that the partnership with a business that “work[s] on the same principals” as Morris allows the group to “plan for the future”.
He added: “Coming together within the same group will allow us to further invest in the team’s wellbeing, training and development, to create the very best place to work.
“We will also strengthen our specialist services with capital allowances, R&D, financial planning and commercial & residential finance coming in-house through DJH Mitten Clarke.”
Scott Heath, executive director at DJH Mitten Clarke, said: “Whilst exploring our options to enhance our presence in the North-West, we considered a number of firms but Morris and Co really stood out.
“We were blown away by the team and their specialisms and knowledge of the health care and franchise sectors.”
He added that the acquisition will “strengthen the infrastructure of both businesses” that stand to “learn a lot from each other”.
