Michelle Cooper and Martyn Hall

Lincoln-headquartered law firm Sills & Betteridge has snapped up Sheffield counterpart Acclaimed Family Law.

The Yorkshire firm – the third to be acquired by Sills & Betteridge as part of an expansion drive in the region – will continue to operate under its own name from its base at Cathedral Chambers on Campo Lane.

Sills & Betteridge has also completed swoops for South Yorkshire law firm Bridge Sanderson Munro and Rawson Family Law of Sheffield in recent years, and now has five offices in the county.

Martyn Hall, CEO at Sills & Betteridge, said: “This move is a strong strategic fit both for our existing operations in Yorkshire and our ongoing investment aspirations. Michelle and her team are dynamic and enterprising and share our service-first culture. We are delighted to have them onboard and look forward to building on the strong foundations both firms already have in the area.”

AFL director Michelle Cooper added: “We will continue to provide the exceptional service we are renowned for as Acclaimed Family law under the Sills & Betteridge umbrella so our clients will benefit from direct access to other departments including commercial, probate and conveyancing to provide them with an enhanced service from beginning to end which other standalone family teams cannot offer.”
