Northampton solicitor Karen Shakespeare gets our search for apt merger names off to a good start. ‘If DR Solicitors (Guildford), Heald Solicitors (Milton Keynes) and Patient Lawyers (Irwin Mitchell’s clinical negligence section) ever got together it would be DR Heald Patient,’ she writes. And if Street Solicitors (Bridgnorth, Shropshire) signed up with QualitySolicitors, we’d get Quality Street. ‘Always popular at Christmas.’

No doubt preliminary merger talks are already in progress.
