Donnelly & Elliott join forces with Verisona Law

Gosport legal firm, Donnelly & Elliott is proud to officially announce its merger with renowned Portsmouth practice, Verisona Law.

The merger comes as a result of careful discussion and planning between the directors of Verisona Law and Adam Corcoran, Managing Director of Donnelly & Elliott, who joined the practice in 2009 and specialises in commercial property and advising businesses.

Verisona was launched in October 2008, and was the result of a merger between two high street practices – Dyer Burdett and Gray Purdue. Since then, Verisona has established itself as a leading legal practice in Hampshire, with its offices in Waterlooville and at 1000 Lakeside, Portsmouth.

‘Donnelly & Elliott is a household name for many who have had generations of their families turn to them when in need of legal advice, and we will continue to trade under that name,’ says Adam, who has become a Director of Verisona Law. ‘However, we recognise that, whilst we have an impressive list of valued clients, we will need the support of an advanced internal infrastructure such as that developed by Verisona Law.’

Verisona has a very similar client focus to Donnelly & Elliott, and their aim is to support private clients, businesses and business owners with a wide range of legal services and expertise. For clients of Donnelly & Elliott it will be very much business as usual.

‘We are delighted to be merging with such a well-respected firm as Donnelly & Elliott,’ says Verisona Law’s Chairman, Michael Dyer. ‘With over seventy years’ experience advising private and business clients in Gosport and beyond, an office employing 18 staff and the benefit of the experience of consultant John Donnelly, who for many years ran the firm with his brother Michael, this merger will pave the way to a successful future for both businesses.’

‘Adam and his team bring valuable experience and expertise, particularly in property and business law,’ explains Sue Ball, Managing Director of Verisona Law. ‘We are thrilled that Donnelly & Elliott has seen its future in what we have worked so hard to achieve in the past decade, and we look forward to sharing the innovation and self-belief that allowed us to break the rules in 2008, creating the Verisona Law brand that we are so proud of.’
