Redkite Solicitors has expanded its operation in Carmarthen with the acquisition of two long-established law firms based in the town.

Redkite has acquired local firm Trant & Richards, which has been serving the people of Carmarthen and surrounding areas for over 150 years, and Steel & Hitchcock, who have been delivering legal support to the same area since 1923.

“This is another great step for Redkite as we continue to expand our business in West Wales,” said Neil Walker, Chief Executive of Redkite.

“Trant & Richards and Steel & Hitchcock are highly-respected names within the legal world of West Wales and we look forward to working with their many clients and the staff who are also joining us as part of this merger.

Staff members Howard Williams and Shirley Jones from Trant & Richards will transfer from their current office in St. Mary’s Street, to Redkite’s recently renovated offices in Spilman Street.

Mr Walker said: “We are working hard to make sure the acquisition goes as smoothly as possible and are committed to providing clients of both firms the same excellent service offered to all clients of Redkite Solicitors. We are also looking forward to working with our new colleagues Howard and Shirley”.

“The acquisitions bring further strength to the Redkite family which already has specialists in virtually every field of the law based in six offices throughout Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Cardiff.”
