Addleshaw Booth & Co
|Headquarters||Manchester, United Kingdom|
|Major practice areas||General practice|
|Dissolved||1 May 2003|
Addleshaw Booth & Co was formed in 1997 by a merger between the Leeds-based Booth & Co. and the Manchester-based Addleshaw Sons & Latham. Addleshaw Booth was a 'heavyweight' in the North of England legal sector, with offices in Leeds and Manchester. Its local standing, amongst other things, led to the firm's high-profile appointment as the official lawyers to the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
However, the firm's small office in London, and its failure to garner City-based clients, led to the tie-up with Theodore Goddard in the spring of 2003 to become Addleshaw Goddard. Seen by many commentators in the legal sector as a takeover, the majority of the management board of the new firm were made up of Addleshaw Booth & Co's partners.
