Mid-west firms MHP and Sellors to merge

Mid-west firms MHP and Sellors to merge

Two long-established firms in the mid-west region are to merge to create one of the largest law firms in the region.

Ennis-based Michael Houlihan & Partners LLP and Sellors LLP, based in Limerick, will merge with effect from 1 July.

Founded in 1933, MHP is a seven-solicitor firm with three partners. Sellors LLP is 150 years old, and has 14 solicitors and five partners.

‘Thriving’ market

The two firms will continue to operate from their respective buildings on Bindon St, Ennis, and Glentworth St, Limerick, according to the Clare Echo.

Managing partner Stephen Keogh (pictured) of Sellors, who previously spent ten years with Dublin firm Eversheds Sutherland, will lead the newly merged firm.

“This is a landmark announcement for legal services in Clare and Limerick, as it is the first time that two firms located in these neighbouring counties have merged,” he stated.

“We are looking to strengthen each of our existing teams to compete in the new legal environment, and to look towards new areas of practice,” he continued, adding that the mid-west region had a “thriving” commercial market.
