Nelsons Solicitors acquired by Lawfront

Monday 15th May, 2023

MH was pleased to act for the partners of Nelsons on the sale of their membership interests to private equity-backed legal group Lawfront.

This deal represents Lawfront’s largest acquisition yet since being founded in 2021, doubling the size of its business and taking its revenue to over £45m. Lawfront is backed by Blixt, a London-based PE firm which invests in mid-market companies across Europe in the legal, wealth management and accounting sectors.

Nelsons has a strong foothold in the Midlands providing expert support and advice to businesses, individuals, and families, with offices in Nottingham, Derby and Leicester. Through this acquisition, Lawfront will be able to establish a strong position in the region, fulfilling their goal of retaining the best lawyers and delivering the best service to clients.

Stewart Vandermark, CEO of Nelsons commented: “It was clear early on that Lawfront was a great fit for Nelsons, bringing greater opportunities for all our colleagues and enhancing the services we can offer to our clients.

“My personal thanks to the MH team who worked together seamlessly on this deal, offering clear, helpful advice throughout the process.”

Ian Morris led the MH team which included Daisy Divoká and James Stocker, strengthening our expertise in the professional services sector and working with private equity.
