Looking towards continued expansion in it’s 250th anniversary year, Slater Heelis has completed its acquisition of insolvency law specialists, N J Goodman & Co based in Altrincham for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition will bolster Slater Heelis’ existing offering, enabling the firm to further solidify its full-service offering proposition.
As part of the deal, all four staff from N J Goodman & Co have joined Slater Heelis and will be based at their new headquarters at Crossgate House in Sale. This includes the firm’s owner, Nick Goodman, senior solicitor, David Vernon and two administrative support colleagues, Alison Lowe and Lynsey Walker.
N J Goodman & Co is a long-established solicitor’s practice offering specialist advice in insolvency law and on joining Slater Heelis will work closely with the firms established corporate, employment and dispute resolution teams.
With a wealth of experience in this difficult and highly technical field, the addition of insolvency law to the suite of services now offered by Slater Heelis will ensure the team can offer practical, expert advice in all areas of law and related matters for individuals, sole traders, partners, directors, companies, shareholders, creditors, insolvency practitioners and other advisers alike.
Chris Bishop, managing partner at Slater Heelis, said: “This year marks a momentous milestone for Slater Heelis and we are pleased the acquisition of N J Goodman & Co has completed during our 250th anniversary year in what feels like the final piece of the jigsaw for us.
“The N J Goodman practice is a sound business with a solid reputation and, more importantly, they are nice people to deal with, so we are delighted to welcome them, and their clients, into the Slater Heelis family.”
Nick Goodman, owner of N J Goodman said: “Slater Heelis is built on solid foundations and we are really excited to merge our teams together. Between both parties, we now have real breadth and depth of experience in dealing with commercial disputes and insolvency law and together we can ensure we fully support those who find themselves in these difficult situations.
“Slater Heelis has a history and heritage that very few can boast about and we are proud to become a part of it.”
Chris added: “As we continue through our quarter-of-a-century year, we have ambitious plans to reach a 250-strong workforce and achieve 250 staff volunteer days, alongside continuing our charitable activities and Wellness & Wellbeing programme, so N J Goodman & Co has joined the business at an exciting time.”
