Lincolnshire law firms in merger deal

Shan Jaehrig and Helen Kirk

Law firm Sills & Betteridge has merged with Helen Kirk of TrentSide Legal based in Gainsborough.

The deal will make the new company the largest legal services provider in the town.

The newly-merged team will trade as Sills & Betteridge incorporating TrentSide Legal and will be based at Sills & Betteridge’s offices in Marshall’s Yard from early September.

Helen Kirk will join the firm as a partner, and along with her existing team, will continue to handle residential property matters.

Kirk said: “I have built up TrentSide Legal over the last 12 years into a well-respected firm serving clients locally and further afield. I have established long lasting relationships with many clients who have been happy to recommend me to their friends and family. I am looking forward to this new chapter and being part of the Sills and Betteridge family and will continue to provide my personal touch to all clients old and new.”

Sills & Betteridge partner, and Gainsborough branch manager, Shan Jaehrig, added: “Having worked with TrentSide Legal as professional colleagues we know that they too are committed to providing high level legal services for the people of Gainsborough. They will be a perfect complement to our existing team further strengthening the legal services which we provide to Gainsborough and the surrounding areas.”

Sills & Betteridge has been in Gainsborough since 2009. The firm has 12 offices across Nottingham, Lincolnshire, Doncaster and Northampton.
