Sills & Betteridge LLP and Campions Unite to Create Dynamic Legal Partnership

We are pleased to announce our acquisition of Nottingham headquartered Campions Solicitors. The collaboration is a significant development in the East Midlands legal landscape and realises the ambitions of both firms to create a dynamic legal partnership in the region.

Sills & Betteridge LLP was founded over 265 years ago and is consistently ranked among the top-performing law firms in the UK. The firm first expanded into Nottingham from neighbouring Lincolnshire in 2013 when we acquired MacLaren Britton of King Street.

In 2019 we undertook extensive sympathetic refurbishment of our current offices on George Street, Hockley to where the Campions team will now relocate. Campions offices on Mansfield Road in the city will close - and their operations in Pride Park, Derby and Grove Park, Leicester will remain open and be further developed by the firm.

The merged practice will operate across the East Midlands as Sills & Betteridge incorporating Campions.

Sills & Betteridge Chief Executive Martyn Hall explained the reason for the merger

“Bringing an established East Midlands brand like Campions on board will help us to develop our profile in the region and gain real competitive advantage in our complementary practice areas of family law, residential conveyancing and wills, trusts and probate. We look forward to working with their team and providing additional personal and commercial legal services to their clients”.

Campions Founder Stephen Campion said

“We are very pleased to be joining forces with Sills. We are aware of their strong reputation and wide range of legal services and believe our collective expertise and commitment to delivering excellent client care will truly benefit existing and future clients”.

Daniel Priest, joining the merged practice as a Partner agreed

‘Having worked in family law for over 20 years I am very excited to be bringing my experience and expertise of working with clients throughout the East Midlands to such a large and established legal practice.’ 

The acquisition will see the 400 strong team at Sills & Betteridge deliver legal services from 18 locations across Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and The East Midlands.
