Law firm deepens commitment to Yorkshire with acquisition of Leeds solicitors

Yorkshire law firm Ison Harrison has acquired Cohen Cramer Solicitors, a firm with a presence in Leeds and a national clientele.

Ison Harrison says the move underscores its “commitment to growth, excellence, and its unique value of being an employee-owned business.”

Cohen Cramer has roots dating back to 1980 when Howard Cohen & Co was established. In 2009, the business merged with Cramer Richards, forming Cohen Cramer. It specialises in personal injury, regulatory and criminal law, as well as animal related cases, family law, dispute resolution and legal costs.

With a team of four directors and 27 employees, the firm achieved a turnover exceeding £3 million last year.

This acquisition significantly enhances Ison Harrison’s footprint in the region, bringing the total number of staff to over 300 and solidifying its position with 20 offices across Yorkshire.

Jonathan Wearing, Managing Director of Ison Harrison, says: “This acquisition is a testament to our ongoing commitment to providing exceptional and accessible legal services across Yorkshire.

“By linking up with Cohen Cramer’s specialist lawyers, we are not only expanding our team but also enhancing our ability to serve our clients with a broader and more robust range of legal services.

“Cohen Cramer’s strengths in regulatory and criminal law perfectly complement our existing capabilities, and their focus on military and animal-related injury claims will significantly enhance our personal injury practice. We are stronger and more versatile than ever before.”

Emma Mason, Managing Director of Cohen Cramer, says: “Joining forces with Ison Harrison is an incredible opportunity for us. The firm’s strong reputation and extensive regional presence will enhance our ability to deliver outstanding service to our clients.

“We are proud to become part of an innovative, employee-owned firm that shares our passion for client-centred legal practice. We are a great fit.”
