Slough-based law firm Harris Cartier has gone into administration as London firm Gordon Dadds has acquired part of the practice. Harris Cartier appointed administrators on October 11. 

Gordon Dadds, described as a high-profile private client firm, has added to both its commercial and private client offering with the arrival of eight solicitors from Harris Cartier. The solicitors joining Gordon Dadds specialise in company and commercial, private client, and commercial litigation and property law. The transaction does not include the clinical negligence business of Harris Cartier, which is not a specialism of Gordon Dadds, and which has been sold to another firm.

Adrian Biles, managing partner at Gordon Dadds, said: “Gordon Dadds is expanding and evolving. This is an exciting time for the firm. We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues and look forward to working alongside them. We will be contacting existing clients of Harris Cartier to ensure a seamless transfer of existing cases. They can be sure of the highest levels of service going forward.”

The transaction with Harris Cartier follows the recent establishment of Gordon Dadds Consulting LLP, which offers a range of risk management and compliance, HR and actuarial consulting services.

Gordon Dadds LLP is a leading independent law firm based in Mayfair. Described by The Legal 500 as an ‘excellent niche firm’, it is particularly well known for its family and litigation work but also advises clients in the following legal areas: company and commercial, property, employment and private client. The recently established Gordon Dadds Consulting LLP provides consultancy on compliance and risk management, HR, pensions, actuarial services, tax compliance and corporate structures.

Harris Cartier's administrators are Anne O'Keefe, Simon Wilson and Peter Holder, all of Zolfo Cooper LLP, the advisory and restructuring firm.
