Dawson & Burgess merges with Kenyon, Son & Craddock

Dawson & Burgess and Kenyon, Son & Craddock have merged to create a Yorkshire law firm built on mutual strengths.

The merger, which completed on 1 April, sees two law firms combine that have been serving their local communities and clients further afield for more than 175 years.

Kenyon, Son & Craddock will continue to trade under its own name in Thorne, Goole and Wakefield, with all staff becoming a part of Doncaster-based Dawson & Burgess.

The merged firm will be led by partners Tony Henshaw, Kristen Craig, Gemma Canli and Janice Oxley.

Combined, they will be able to offer both existing and new clients access to specialist support in the areas of personal injury, wills and probate, residential, commercial and agricultural conveyancing, and family and general litigation.

Commenting on the merger, Tony Henshaw, a personal injury and litigation partner at Kenyon, Son & Craddock, said: “We are really excited by the prospect of joining two long-standing local law firms who both share a commitment to tradition, respect and value their excellent reputation built over many years while also recognising the need to meet client needs in a modern and approachable way.”

Kristen Craig, wills and probate partner at Dawson & Burgess, added: “We have a genuine shared ethos of how we want to work going forward based on a commitment to provide excellent legal services. Together, we look forward to continuing to deliver those in the highly professional and approachable manner our clients expect and deserve.”
