Yorkshire law firm creates £25m turnover business with York acquisition

A Yorkshire firm has announced that it is creating a £25m turnover business with its latest acquisition.

Switalskis Solicitors, which was founded in Wakefield in 1993 and has offices across Yorkshire, has completed the acquisition of York-based Pryers Solicitors from Pure Business Group.

This news follows on from the December acquisition of Doncaster firm Atherton Godfrey.

The sale by Pure Business Group for an undisclosed amount will see around 70 legal specialists and support staff from Pryers become part of the Switalskis Group. However, Pryers will continue to trade under the same name from its existing base in York.

The acquisition will increase the headcount at Switalskis Group to around 450 people and add £5m turnover to the firm.

John Durkan, managing director of Switalskis, said: “Over the last 28 years Switalskis has grown, both organically and via a series of acquisitions, into a highly successful firm with a strong reputation and many practitioners recognised as leaders in their field, regionally and nationally.”

He continued: “Pryers is a respected team, with a strong brand and reputation in the medical negligence and personal injury sectors.

“They will complement perfectly our established teams and add critical mass to the business, building further on the strategic growth that we achieved when we incorporated Atherton Godfrey into the group.”
