  • 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.

  • “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.’

    Mr and Mrs Watt
  • Chloe, we just want to take this opportunity to thank you. There are not enough words to describe just how amazingly you have handled this whole process for us. We can’t thank you enough for supporting us through what has been a challenging few months!!

    Mr and Mrs Richardson
  • Hello Mr Baker and Matthew

  • I asked Sharon to look into carrying out some debt collection and from the very first communication, Sharon took away all the stress and hassle which this situation can bring. Sharon kept me fully informed with what was going on and carried out the work in a professional yet personable manner. It was great when Sharon told me all the debt had been collected with late payment interest added and for me, it was a stress and hassle free experience and I would highly recommend Sharon’s services.
