PM Law Group acquires specialist conveyancing firm

The PM Law Group has announced its acquisition of John M Lewis & Co, specialists in residential conveyancing, wills, trusts, and probate.

The business will continue to trade under the John M Lewis & Co name and remain at their offices on Vernon Street near Derby City centre. They will offer a new, wider range of complementary legal services as part of the PM Law Group’s national law firm practices.

PM Law Group CEO Jon Bostock said he was “delighted” to bring the Derby firm into PM Law Group’s ranks. He continued:

“We hope to be able to complement and build upon this with our additional range of services as well as tech know-how, which allows us to offer services to customers however they wish – both digitally and locally.”

Bostock noted PM Law Group remain on the lookout for avenues of expansion, be it further acquisitions or “joint ventures in localities we have so far not reached”, with one aim of their model being to help those firms reduce their regulatory burden whilst allowing them to remain independent. “We’ve partnered with other firms this way and it’s working very well for all parties so we’re on the lookout for more,” he added.

John M Lewis Senior Partner Lisa Wills, said:

“We’re delighted to join the PM Law Group. It was very important to us that we could still build and retain close relationships with our clients and retain that degree of independence. We’re well-known locally, so keeping our existing brand name is a big positive for our clients and staff. I’m very optimistic about our prospects and opportunities for 2023 and beyond.”
