Forces & Military Law in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire

At Sills & Betteridge, we are proud to support and represent our Armed Forces.

Our team of specialist solicitors have years of experience in acting for members of HM Armed Forces.

When service personnel need legal advice, it is not enough to get a good solicitor, we would say that you need a good solicitor who has knowledge of service life and the forces legal system. Not only could you face being punished for your actions, it can also impact upon your pension rights.

Our team has experience of representing those in the British Army, Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force at interviews by the Service Police, advising on the best course of action at Summary Hearings, representing personnel at Summary Appeal Court and before Courts-Martials.

Our solicitors are contactable 24 hours a day and can attend interviews throughout the UK and further afield, in addition we will attend upon you at one of the Military Court Centres if you face a Courts-Martial.

Furthermore, our experienced lawyers are here to provide the Forces community, Forces veterans and civilian contractors attached to the MOD with a full range of legal services to help with all your legal needs.

We regularly advise and assist Service Personnel and their families with:

Family Law (including but limited to Divorce, Mediation, Care and Contact Proceedings)

Buying and Selling property and Residential Letting

Wills, Trusts and Probate

Criminal Law and Motoring Offences

In addition to these personal legal services, our Corporate and Commercial team, has a vast array of expertise in dealing with all business law issues.

Client Feedback

  • I am very happy. Thank you for all your help. I hope to be alright for the future now. Kind regards

    Vasile Popovici
  • I wanted to email to highlight how helpful and efficient Matthew Daurge has been during the purchase and sale of our property. This is this first time Mathew has acted on our behalf and he really has made the process run very smoothly and quickly. Because of this we will definitely be asking him to act on our behalf with our future projects. 

     

    Mathew presents as being extremely efficient and his communication skills have been excellent. He has always done what he has said he is going to do without us having to keep following this up. Mathew was always very good at keeping us updated and is very approachable. I have work with many solicitors both on a professional level and personal and I am yet to come across a solicitor that has been as helpful as Mathew.  

     

    Mathew is a credit to your company. So I just wanted to highlight his good practice and hope you will pass on this positive feedback as it is much deserved.

  • We remain most grateful for all your help and support in bringing this matter to a satisfactory conclusion. No one could have done more, and we think the outcome is not only a credit to your skills in this area of law, but also to the care and attention that you have taken on our behalf

     

    Mr & Mrs Bush

  • Corporate partner Martin Walsh, led a team from Sills, who were an integral part of the team working on our recent multi million pound Management Buy Out of Battles Ltd.

    Sills worked tirelessly to complete the transaction against a very tight deadline. Martin used his significant transaction experience and legal knowledge to find practical solutions to the inevitable issues that arose and provided some particularly sage advice when we had our most difficult meetings with the Vendor. Sills service levels were excellent, providing a fast response to communications and immediately turning around the transactional documents. I rate them very highly and would not hesitate in recommending Martin and the Sills corporate team to anyone buying or selling a company or business.

  • As CEO of  Sleaford Quality Foods I was delighted with the work  Sills & Betteridge very recently carried out for the group on the multi million pound acquisition in Sleaford of the land and building formerly occupied (following their closure) by Great Plains UK Ltd which site is directly opposite our current factory and Warehouse. Having been looking for land in Sleaford for some time to meet the demands of our very rapidly growing business,  our turnover is now in excess of £55 million, the location and the 8 acre plus site was perfect for us.

    I wanted the transaction completed very quickly so as not to lose the opportunity and to have minimum interference with our production. As suppliers of dried foods and spices to the food industry it was vital we did not let down our customers.

    I would in particular like to mention the work which Sills partner Martin Walsh, carried out for us in leading the Sills team. He worked very hard to ensure the transaction was completed to a very tight deadline.

    I have worked with Sills for a number of years and continue to be very impressed with them and have no hesitation in recommending Martin and the Sills team.

    James Arnold, CEO Sleaford Quality Foods Ltd
  • “Thank you very much for everything you’ve done for me. That is a great news for me, I don’t know how to thank you Mr Wilson

    Mr G Kaci
  • Dean

    I just want to say a huge thank you to you today for the way in which you dealt with Ryan and myself and of course the case. I have no doubt without your representation we wouldn’t have achieved this result. Ryan, his mum and me are delighted and relieved it’s all over. Our very many thanks

    We don’t have a solicitor and although I assume your expertise is crime and therefore hopefully won’t need you again, I will certainly be using your firm for any other work in the future

    All the very best 

     

  • ‘Thank you very much for seeing us through the trying process of buying and selling property; only made much easier by your guidance.’
