Rapid deal strengthens Neil Hudgell
Hull-headquartered law firm Neil Hudgell Solicitors has bought Rapid Solicitors adding 120 staff, based in three offices.
As a result, the firm will now handle in excess of 10,000 claims and employ more than 220 staff.
The deal comes as the business heads towards a record-breaking year, as it is currently on target to achieve damages totalling around £20m for clients, up from £8.75m in 2012, and £13m in 2013.
Managing director Neil Hudgell said: "This move further establishes our position as one of the biggest personal injury specialists in the north of England.
"I'm very much looking forward to integrating the new members of staff into our business. We have a track record of successfully taking on large caseloads and ensuring that new teams quickly adapt to our ways of working."
Last year, Neil Hudgell Solicitors managed the transfer of Harris Cartier cases to open its first London-based office, and under the Webuyanyfiles.com brand, 25 deals had previously been completed, acquiring more than 6,000 new clients.
