Chattertons Celebrates Acquisition
Chattertons are celebrating a fruitful end of the year after acquiring another Lincolnshire law firm, combining more than 350 years of legal history in the county.
Merging with Andrew & Co Solicitors, Chattertons have bolstered their staff by 25 per cent after welcoming all existing employees to join them.
Combining the two firms will give clients wider access to an extensive array of services, which, along with wealth management and business and employment law, are supported by a full range of personal law services including conveyancing, wills, trusts and probate and family.
Chattertons currently has 10 offices spread across the southern half of Lincolnshire from Horncastle to Boston and Stamford. The main office in Lincoln, located on West Parade, has now relocated to the existing Andrew & Co premises in the city’s Nettleham Road.
Edward Conway, Chief Executive of Chattertons, said: “By combining our excellent teams we will continue to deliver an exceptional service to all of our clients in Lincolnshire and across the East Midlands.
“Relationships are important to us and we will ensure that all existing clients with both firms will receive the high-level of service and support they are used to with the team member they have already been working with.
“We are looking forward to 2020 and all of the opportunities this will bring for our clients.”
Julie Bailey, Chief Executive of Andrew & Co Solicitors, said: “The partners at Andrew & Co Solicitors are pleased that this opportunity will ensure that the families and clients we have served for generations will continue to receive the best that we and Lincolnshire can offer.
“We look forward to a long and successful new era in which our joint services will support not only our clients but also economic growth over the coming uncertain economic and political times.”
Chattertons is one of the longest-serving independent law firms in the East Midlands, after it was established by Frederick William Tweed in Horncastle more than 163 years ago.
Since then the firm has expanded, with 10 offices spread across the southern half of Lincolnshire and one in London.
