Owners of Beswicks Legal shake hands to complete Maddocks Clarke acquisition

04/10/2021

Beswicks Legal has completed the acquisition of Maddocks Clarke Solicitors, giving the Stoke-on-Trent firm an important presence in the north-west. 

The move enables Beswicks Legal to support existing clients in the Cheshire and Manchester areas while growing their client-base in the region. 

Maddocks Clarke is a well-respected firm that has its roots in Altrincham and the surrounding area going back over 30 years. It has an outstanding reputation for residential and commercial property, family law and wills and probate.

The team will continue to be based at Fairbank House, Ashley Road, Altrincham, but will integrate with Stoke-on-Trent colleagues to work as one firm.  Nick Whitworth will lead the team in its ongoing success, supported by lawyers across all practice areas to provide a multi-disciplinary offering in Altrincham. 

Beswicks Legal will maintain a strong focus on the needs of their clients in the Stoke-on-Trent area but are excited to grow into a new market with a long-standing and respected firm. 

Nick Phillips, Managing Partner at Beswicks Legal, said: “We’re delighted to acquire the team from Maddocks Clarke.  

“There is a natural synergy between both businesses. Just like the team at Beswicks, Maddocks Clarke boasts lawyers who have a depth of knowledge and are respected experts in their fields. We also enjoy a shared culture and belief in providing outstanding client care. 

“I warmly welcome the Maddocks Clarke team into the Beswicks Legal fold.” 

Nick Whitworth, Partner at Maddocks Clarke, added: “The acquisition is great news for our clients – past, present and future – as they will have access to the same legal advisers that they know and trust, based in the same offices that are familiar to them, but we will be operating as part of a bigger, multi-disciplinary team which brings extensive expertise to support clients’ personal and business legal needs.”
