Memery Crystal Joins the RBG Group
On 28 May 2021, GGI London member firm Memery Crystal became part of RBG Holdings Plc, a professional services group that is listed on the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM).
The RBG group comprises four businesses: Memery Crystal is the largest subsidiary and one of two law firms, the other being premier litigation and commercial law firm Rosenblatt. Together they form the legal services division and are joined by LionFish, a litigation finance specialist, and Convex Capital, a specialist sellside corporate finance boutique.
Being part of the RBG group gives Memery Crystal access to a range of complementary disciplines, additional scope to invest in its business by leveraging public funds and new employee incentives to retain key personnel making the firm an even more attractive prospect for both clients and talent.
Lesley Gregory, Memery Crystal’s Chair, said, “As a firm, we are excited to have joined the RBG group. We have retained our management and brand identity along with our distinctive partner-led culture. Memery Crystal and RBG’s existing legal firm, Rosenblatt, naturally complement each other as part of the Group’s Legal Services division. The strength of the combined Group means we can offer enhanced services to the clients we share with GGI and provide even better career development for our staff.”
Nicola Foulston, CEO, RBG Holdings, added: “Memery Crystal is an excellent addition to the Group both culturally and operationally. Both businesses are entrepreneurial in nature. The firm is a strong operational fit with our existing legal business, Rosenblatt, providing a stronger corporate, commercial, and real estate offering to complement Rosenblatt’s leadership in dispute resolution.”
Memery Crystal is retaining its international focus and membership of GGI and is keen to encourage other member firms who are interested in learning more about the transaction, to get in touch.
