Sarah Dixon & Co Solicitors acquired by Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers

Date published: 16 February 2024

Sarah Dixon & Co Solicitors in Milnrow has been purchased by Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers in a recent expansion.

The move has been welcomed by Sarah, a well-respected and trusted local solicitor, and her team. 

Staff members will be retained, and Sarah will continue to work alongside the Pearson teams, some of whom will be based in Milnrow.

The growth is part of a strategic plan by Pearson to move into new areas, as well as develop its service in Milnrow and the wider Rochdale area, bringing legal services to individuals and businesses.

As well as strengthening and expanding the already existing family law and private client practice on offer at Sarah Dixon, the move will also bring conveyancing, personal injury, medical negligence, and employment law, as well as legal services for business, and financial services to the area.

Based in North Manchester and Saddleworth, this move by Pearson sees the firm now grow to five offices and over 80 staff.

Commenting on the acquisition, Sarah said: "I have given this a great deal of thought as the business has been built up by me for many years and is personal to me. Pearson are a well-respected firm with generations of clients and traditions, but at the same time ready to take the business forward, and finding a firm with the same ethos as myself was a vital factor.

“I am pleased Pearson has taken on board my staff and are bringing a professional full-service law firm to the area, it’s a great fit and I am sure we have an exciting year ahead of us.”

Pearson director Joanne Ormston added: “Taking over this established Milnrow firm is an honour, and we hope to continue the personal service and excellent client care Sarah has developed for her clients.

“Culturally, it is a perfect fit for Pearson as we like to think we place the same emphasis on client satisfaction and will build on the solid foundations Sarah has built, whilst at the same time bringing other legal services into the area.

“This is a significant move for Pearson and one which reflects our ambitious growth plans for 2024 and beyond.”
