With expertise at Milton Francis & Hughes dating back to 1983, GHP Legal`s success began when Gwilym Hughes, Gethin Davies and Clive Jones, all former partners at Cyril Jones & Co.`s Wrexham & Shotton firm, joined forces in 1970 to form Gwilym Hughes & Partners. The year 2000 saw the merger with (A W) Brown & Lloyd of Oswestry, founded in 1980. Commenting on the acquisition, Richard Lloyd, Senior Partner at GHP Legal, said: «The merger of our two firms strengthens GHP Legal`s position as already a highly respected law firm in Shropshire, North and Central Wales. GHP Legal, a leading Legal 500 law firm and one of the largest private firms serving Oswestry, Shropshire and North and Mid Wales, has acquired the Oswestry practice of Milton Francis & Hughes. Michael is a lawyer with over 10 years of experience in real estate and working with private clients.

Victoria Wilson, Partner at GHP Legal and Head of the Private Clients team in Llangollen and Chirk, welcomed him to the firm and said: «GHP Legal has a strong reputation for handling all retail client issues sensitively while achieving positive results. Michael brings a lot of experience and will undoubtedly be a valuable member of the team. After joining GHP Legal in 2016, Michael worked in the firm`s Chirk office alongside Patrick Stevens. He was invited by GHP Legal to become a partner on May 1st.
