Law firm makes third Yorkshire takeover

Regional law firm Sills & Betteridge LLP continues its expansion drive with its acquisition of Sheffield city centre practice Acclaimed Family Law.

Acclaimed Family Law who will continue to operate under their own well-established name from Cathedral Chambers, Campo Lane in the city are a multi-award winning niche firm dealing exclusively with private divorce and family law matters. They will now make available to their clients the full range of personal and commercial services provided by Sills & Betteridge.

Sills & Betteridge Chief Executive Martyn Hall explained their decision to join forces.

“This move is a strong strategic fit both for our existing operations in Yorkshire and our ongoing investment aspirations. Michelle and her team are dynamic and enterprising and share our service-first culture. We are delighted to have them onboard and look forward to building on the strong foundations both firms already have in the area.”

AFL director Michelle Cooper is delighted with the merger.

“We will continue to provide the exceptional service we are renowned for as Acclaimed Family Law under the Sills & Betteridge umbrella so our clients will benefit from direct access to other departments including commercial, probate and conveyancing to provide them with an enhanced service from beginning to end which other stand alone family teams cannot offer.”

The collaboration sees the firm’s Yorkshire network grow to 5 offices since it first opened a small family practice in Doncaster in 2018. It later acquired South Yorkshire full-service firm Bridge Sanderson Munro and Rawson Family Law also of Sheffield, and in 2022 opened the doors to its first office in the East Riding of Yorkshire, in Howden near Hull.
