Cruickshank Pryde and Bayley and Burton law firms have merged.

Cruickshank Pryde practice manager Lynley Price said the merger and expansion coincided with Cruickshank Pryde relocating to the state-of-the-art purpose-built business house on 20 Don St.

“Both firms have a strong presence and history in Southland with an extensive and diverse client base. We are extremely excited about the merger and working together in future,” Ms Price said.

Bayley and Burton was formed in 1862 and Cruickshank Pryde was formed in 1939.

The law firm will operate as Cruickshank Pryde. Cruickshank Pryde has eight partners practising from the firm’s branches in Invercargill, Queenstown and Gore.
