Fox Williams advised Hudgell Solicitors on the sale of their London-based personal injury, clinical negligence and abuse claims teams to Lime Solicitors.
Hudgell Solicitors is an award winning personal services national law firm, ranked in the top tier in the Legal 500 2021. The sale will enable the firm to focus on its northern hubs, whilst maintaining a London presence for civil liberties and human rights work.
Fox Williams partner Douglas Preece led the team on the sale, supported by legal director Tom Pennington-Hare (employment) and senior associate Bethany Silkin (corporate).
Douglas Preece commented “This sale was a strategic decision by Hudgell Solicitors that was influenced by the firm’s shift towards remote working over the last 12 months. At Fox Williams we regularly advise law firms and other professional services firms on team moves and mergers and it was a pleasure to work with Hudgell Solicitors and build on the excellent relationship we have with them.”
The sale completed in May 2021.
