NEIL Hudgell Solicitors has today completed the purchase of Rapid Solicitors in a deal which further enhances its position as one of the biggest personal injury firms in the North of England.
The move will see 120 new members of staff, based in three offices, join the Neil Hudgell Solicitors team. As a result, the firm will now handle more than 10,000 claims and employ more than 220 people.
The deal comes as the business heads towards a record-breaking year, as it is currently on target to achieve damages totalling around £20m for clients, up from £8.75m in 2012, and £13m in 2013.
Managing director Neil Hudgell said: “This move further establishes our position as one of the biggest personal injury specialists in the north of England.
“I’m very much looking forward to integrating the new members of staff into our business. We have a track record of successfully taking on large caseloads and ensuring that new teams quickly adapt to our ways of working.
“The experience we have in doing this means all clients can be assured of both a seamless transfer and the very best levels of service, going forward.”
Last year, Neil Hudgell Solicitors successfully managed the transfer of Harris Cartier cases to open its first London-based office, and under the www.webuyanyfiles.com brand, 25 deals had previously been completed, acquiring more than 6,000 new clients.
