Jobs saved as criminal law firm sold by administrators

A NUMBER of jobs have been saved at criminal law specialist GV Hale & Co after it was sold out of administration.

Chris White and John Russell, partners at The P&A Partnership, were appointed joint administrators to Northern Briefs, trading as G V Hale & Co, which has offices in Doncaster and Scunthorpe.

A sale of the company’s business and assets to Nottingham-based The Johnson Partnership was completed on November 5, securing the jobs of the company’s 17 employees.

Mr White said: “It was an unfortunate chain of events which caused this firm’s downfall but we are very pleased that we have been able to sell this business and protect the jobs of all the staff.”
