Fisher German and Matthews & Goodman have announced a merger to create one of the largest providers of multi-disciplinary property services in the UK, with a turnover approaching £60 million.
Combined, our firms will have in excess of 750 people and 29 offices and will trade under the Fisher German brand.
Matthews & Goodman, established almost 160 years ago, is a multi-disciplinary commercial property consultancy specialising in acquisition and disposal of property assets, building consultancy, business rates, investment, lease consultancy, property management and valuation.
It employs around 80 people in Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds, London and Manchester with a turnover of almost £9 million.
Fisher German Managing Partner, Andrew Bridge, said there were clear similarities between the firms which attracted both parties to working together.
He said: “What we share with Matthews & Goodman is a long history dating back to the mid-nineteenth century, a collaborative approach to working with our colleagues and clients, and a proven track record of winning and retaining some of the UK’s biggest property portfolios. Matthews & Goodman not only shares our vision and values, but also brings with it a highly-motivated team of commercial property experts to match our own. Together, we can offer unrivalled property advice across urban and rural settings and maximise the return on investment to our clients through the benefit of our multi-disciplinary services.”
James Routledge, Head of Investment at Matthews & Goodman, said: “This merger is much more than a marriage of cultures, capabilities, client management philosophes and ambitions. Together, we will have a far greater client offer – access to more experts, more professional services, in more markets. In addition, the prospects for existing talent in both firms and those who have yet to join us, is enormous. Our clients’ access to a creative entrepreneurial culture, underpinned by the breadth of skills, experience and expertise has now been increased quite significantly and, our collective offer is grounded by both companies’ proven heritage.”
We are excited about the new opportunities this merger will create for our clients and welcome you to get in touch if you would like to discuss the merger in more detail.
