Knights expands Lincolnshire presence with town planning firm acquisition

Knights has completed a deal to take over Globe Consultants, a consultancy based in Lincoln specialising in town planning and development.

The acquisition means four town planning specialists will join Knights.

In March, Knights swooped for Langleys Solicitors and now employs 45 people in Lincolnshire.

John Tansur, client services director at Knights said: “We’re delighted to be enhancing our existing offering to clients and bolstering our presence in Lincolnshire with the addition of the talented Globe team. We look forward to welcoming them to Knights as we continue to build our strong position in the regions outside London.”

Phil Scrafton, managing director at Globe said: “Following my plans to retire at the end of the financial year, the Globe team will be starting an exciting new chapter at Knights with a broader range of services and expertise that will benefit our clients. Having known the team at Knights for some time, this is a great opportunity to unlock growth as part of a larger group.”

James Rigby, planning & development director at Globe added: “We are excited to be joining Knights, and look forward to combining our existing expertise with that of Knights’ established team, to the benefit of our clients.”
