Second acquisition in only weeks for Nelsons as it continues its unstoppable growth

Nelsons, a Lawfront firm, has acquired Nottingham-based Cleggs Solicitors as part of its ongoing drive for growth.  

It marks the second deal for Nelsons in a matter of weeks following its acquisition of Leicester-based Pattersons Commercial Law in October. 

Mark Williams, managing director and head of private client at Cleggs Solicitors, said:

“Having become the sole equity partner at Cleggs I wanted to maintain the growth and future of our talented team as well as continuing to offer more to our loyal client base. The Nelsons brand has a personable feel, and the firm believes in building long-term relationships. Our clients and team recognise the importance of this approach and so there was an immediate sharing of values.  

“This move supports the exciting ambitions of both firms and many of our clients will instantly benefit from the expertise and range of services that Nelsons can deliver, with our team also benefiting from the greater resources that Nelsons as a Lawfront firm can provide.” 

Tim Hastings, chairman at Nelsons, said:

“Cleggs Solicitors has been a well-known and respected firm in Nottingham for decades, so this is a meeting of minds and alignment of ambitions.  

"This acquisition will expand our services to clients with Mark’s team bringing substantial commercial and new build residential property experience. At the same time, we can offer Cleggs’ clients a full range of services from our employment and corporate teams that previously the team would have needed to refer elsewhere.  

“I’m looking forward to maximising our combined potential as we come together to pool expertise and resource." 

Neil Lloyd, Lawfront CEO, said:

“We are very pleased to support Nelsons in bringing the Cleggs team into the Nottingham office and the wider group. This and the acquisition of Pattersons Commercial Law in October demonstrate Lawfront’s strategy of backing the management of leading regional law firms, supporting them to achieve their own growth ambitions, both organically and by acquisition.” 

Cleggs Solicitors clients with current matters will be notified and any archived files, wills or deeds will be transferred to Nelsons for safekeeping.
