Caseload Acquisitions

Acquiring full or partial caseloads from other firms can be an excellent way to provide an immediate boost to your practice

Confidentiality & NDAs

We understand how important it is that your intentions are kept concealed until the time is right

Costs Recovery & CFA Enforcement

We have our own in-house cost specialists who will fight to maximise your costs recovery

Funding & Finance

Many mainstream lenders are extremely cautious when it comes to law firms in general and PI practices in particular

Growth & Strategy Consultancy

Our objective is a very simple one, to maximise profitability while maintaining outstanding levels of customer service

Mergers, Acquisitions & Management Buyouts

Straight WIP or practice sales/acquisitions are not always the best way to grow, diversify or dispose of a firm

Other Caseload & Practice Sales

We have close links with multi-disciplined law firms and can assist with matters beyond the PI market

Personal Injury Caseload Sales

Whether you are looking to sell an entire firm, a department or just a certain case type we may be able to help
