ww.acquisition.hudgellsolicitors.co.uk is a trading name of Hudgell Solicitors.

Hudgell Solicitors was established by Neil Hudgell in 1997 and has consistently grown year on year. At the centre of the company’s ethos is excellence in client care and service delivery.

A Legal 500 ranked firm, we operate throughout England and Wales, specialising in personal injury and medical negligence claims, with offices in London, Manchester and Hull employing over 200 staff.

In 2011 we launched www.acquisition.hudgellsolicitors.co.uk, a venture which offers lawyers, insolvency practitioners, accountants and other professionals an efficient and confidential way to sell legal practices and cases.

To date, more than 40 deals have been completed, worth over £8 million in upfront and deferred payments. We aim to complete every transaction within 3 months and the fastest deal we have completed was a week.

We have helped many firms affected by the continued pressures on the personal injury market to either leave the claims industry or focus on other areas of law in recent years.

No deal too small and potential for ‘mini-franchise models’ with single fee earners

More significant costs restrictions and reforms remain on the horizon, and of course the industry has now been further affected by the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak, something which has forced law firms to become much more agile and heavily invested in robust IT infrastructure. Many will face tough times restarting having furloughed a large percentage of staff.

For those looking to sell, there are no deals too small for us to consider. We have cash reserves to be able to discuss the potential purchase of multi-track personal injury and clinical negligence cases.

Also, as a firm which has fully embraced remote working across all departments, we see opportunities for single fee-earners to join us on mini-franchise models, whereby we would provide all the technological and managerial support they need to work with a suitable home / office life balance.

We offer the stability of a long-established place in the market, a highly-experienced management team to offer advice and support and our own in-house back office teams in IT, costs and marketing.

If you have traded on through LASPO, fixed fees and the ban on referral fees, and now feel yet more operational change against tightening margins is a step too far, call Neil Hudgell today for a confidential discussion to go through your options.
