Express Solicitors’ growth strategy in the PI sector furthers with the successful acquisition of Michael W Halsall Solicitors

Express Solicitors, Top 100 law firm, announced the acquisition of Michael W Halsall Solicitors, in Newton-le-Willows – which completed its ambitious growth plans on 31 October 2022.

Managing Partner at Express Solicitors, James Maxey said: “We’re delighted to have acquired such an excellent firm with a long-standing reputation of helping injured people. We look forward to welcoming the talented staff at Michael W Halsall Solicitors on-board and this will assist in our growth. We will continue to operate from their modern premises in Newton-le-Willows. The Directors Ian and Nial have done a fantastic job building up Michael W Halsall Solicitors to the level it is now”.

Express Solicitors’ practice in personal injury law sees itself strengthened by the addition of 37 new staff members and 2500 ongoing cases they are now taking over from the acquisition of Michael W Halsall Solicitors.

Established in 1987, Michael W Halsall Solicitors’ outgoing Directors detailed why it was so important for them to find the right successor practice before confirming an acquisition.

Ian Halsall said: “We are very pleased to find a suitable firm to look after our staff, the firm’s heritage and finding the right fit was very important to us. We are pleased to see during our dealings with Express Solicitors that they are committed to client care, staff welfare and progression and wish them every success”.

Maxey said: “An exceptional service will continue for the ex-Michael W Halsall Solicitors, now Express Solicitors’ clients, aided by a smooth integration of our Proclaim case management systems. Both IT departments and legal teams are working closely together to provide a seamless transition”.

Kimberly Kirkby, Head of RTA at Express Solicitors, will be partly based in the Newton-le-Willows office for the foreseeable future while taking the lead on integration.

During the acquisition, Express Solicitors was advised by long term corporate law firm, O’Connors Solicitors, Liverpool; with Michael W Halsall Solicitors being advised by Clarke Wilmott, Manchester.

Leading Top 100 law firm Express Solicitors has continued to grow its caseload and now has over 20,000 cases. Maxey reported that Express Solicitors were delighted to have the continued support of RBS, and are keen to look for other suitable acquisitions as they strive to become the Number 1 Claimant Personal Injury firm in the UK.
