Birmingham-based law firm SGH Martineau marked St Patrick’s Day on March 17 with a celebratory business breakfast event.

The law firm, based in Colmore Square, has more than a few Irish connections – among them partner Mary Kaye who hails from Limerick.

Ms Kaye recently served as president of Birmingham Law Society.

The law firm’s St Patrick’s celebration has become an annual event in the Birmingham corporate calendar and was as well attended as always.

A spokesman for the firm said: “What better way to start the day of festivities than with Guinness, a bacon roll and live Celtic music.”

SGH Martineau recently announced it was involved in merger talks with fellow Birmingham-based law firm Shakespeares.

If the firms merge it would see the creation of a UK top 50 law firm employing around 900 staff.

A joint statement issued by the firms said: “Each firm excels in distinct sectors with little overlap, making a neat fit between the two.

“There is real synergy in the two firms and an expectation that prospects and clients across the UK and globally will find any merged firm a compelling offering.”
