£1 Million acquisition paves the way for Midlands expansion and a fifth office for Neil Hudgell Solicitors

Neil Hudgell

Neil Hudgell Solicitors has acquired a large caseload from Solihull-based Forum Law Ltd.neil-hudgell

The deal – worth in excess of £1 million – also marks the establishment of a West Midlands base for Neil Hudgell Solicitors, specialists in personal injury and medical negligence. The firm already has four offices in Yorkshire – in Leeds and Hull – and is now opening a fifth at Cranmore Park in Solihull.

Under the Forum deal, high value public liability and medical negligence work will be transferred from Forum Law Ltd and one of Forum’s senior fee earners Kate Campbell-Gunn will also move to Neil Hudgell Solicitors.

The deal is the latest expansion for Neil Hudgell Solicitors which in recent months has purchased personal injury files from North Yorkshire-based Williamson Hill and the personal injury and clinical negligence caseload from former Peterborough-based Carters Solicitors. During 2011 Neil Hudgell Solicitors also bought three other practices outright.

Managing Director Neil Hudgell said: “This is a very exciting time for us indeed and we’re looking forward to the future.  The move into the Midlands is part of our continued business growth strategy and in the coming months we’ll be looking for further acquisition opportunities.

“As well as taking on this new caseload, we’ve recently had an increase in Midlands-based clients and, with this latest acquisition from Forum, it makes sense to open a fifth office from which we will be able to serve them.”

Jeff Zindani, Forum Law managing partner, emphasised the transfer of the PI and Medical Negligence case load to Neil Hudgell Solicitors is part of a restructuring of Forum Law.

Jeff Zindani said: “The sale is one of the outcomes of a pre-Jackson review of personal injury based work and a new focus on boutique legal services. A new business model is emerging at Forum and we realised we needed to transfer our PI and Medical Negligence caseload.  Neil Hudgell Solicitors is the ideal purchaser as the practice has national coverage and expertise.”

Neil Hudgell Solicitors is interested in talking to any firm which wishes to sell individual files, caseloads or the entire practice and also to firms which may wish to partner with the firm.  The website www.webuyanyfiles.com  has more details and outlines Neil Hudgell Solicitors’ offer.
