Fisher German merges with Matthews & Goodman

Fisher German and Matthews & Goodman have joined forces, resulting in one of the largest providers of multi-disciplinary property services in the UK, with a turnover of nearly £60m.

The merger will involve over 750 people and 29 offices and will trade under the Fisher German brand.

Fisher German managing partner, Andrew Bridge, said there were clear similarities between the firms, which impelled both parties to work together.

“What we share with Matthews & Goodman is a long history dating back to the mid-19th century, a collaborative approach to working with our colleagues and clients, and a proven track record of winning and retaining some of the UK’s biggest property portfolios,” commented Andrew. 

He added that Matthews & Goodman also had the same highly motivated team spirit.

“Together, we can offer unrivalled property advice across urban and rural settings and maximise the return on investment to our clients through the benefit of our multi-disciplinary services.” 

James Routledge, head of investment at Matthews & Goodman, stated: “This merger is much more than a marriage of cultures, capabilities, client management philosophes and ambitions.

“Together, we will have a far greater client offer — access to more experts, more professional services, in more markets.”

In addition to its usual services, Matthews & Goodman now has “an additional capability in rural, residential, development, sustainable energy and infrastructure,” as an upshot of the union.

“What has not changed is the fact that clients know that the counsel they receive will be informed, impartial and independent,” its website states. 

Additionally, Matthews & Goodman — still an independent partnership owned by equity partners — believes the merger will ensures clients will attain their occupancy and investment goals, while minimising costs and liabilities.
