Lincolnshire law firm expands
A LINCOLNSHIRE law firm is continuing its expansion across the region by merging with a NottinghaM practice.
Sills and Betteridge, which has 200 staff across seven offices in Lincolnshire, has merged with MacLaren Britton.
This represents a further step in the practice’s expansion which has also seen mergers with firms in Sleaford, Boston and Skegness, as well as developing a new office in Gainsborough in recent years.
Sills and Betteridge also recently took over the ground floor at Aquis House, on Clasketgate, in addition to the three upper floors already occupied by the firm in order to accommodate its growing team of lawyers.

The latest merger represents a positive step for both firms. Sills and Betteridge is keen to move into the large Nottingham legal market while MacLaren Britton can now call upon the additional resources and services of a large firm.
The other two partners of MacLaren Britton - Duncan MacLaren and Lindy Ford –have also joined the merged firm.
Sills and Betteridge has also acquired Skegness firm, JSP Solicitors.
JSP principally undertook conveyancing, wills and probate work having disposed of their personal injury practice earlier in the year.
Pam Smith, Louise Gregory and Pat Thorpe who are well known locally, will move to Sills & Betteridge’s offices and continue to look after clients of JSP Solicitors.
