Knights today announces the completion of its acquisition of Archers Law LLP and welcomes new colleagues in Teesside.

The completion of Archers provides Knights with entry into the North East region, one of the largest marketing outside London for legal and professional services in the UK and complements its existing presence in Yorkshire with the Group growing its position significantly in Leeds and York over recent months.

Through acquisitions and organic growth, Knights now operates across 17 office locations and is supported by over 1300 colleagues.

Paul Cooper, Client Services Director at Knights commented“We are thrilled to have completed our acquisition of Archers and we are hugely looking forward to working with our new colleagues to continue their great work of the last few years in building a dominant position in Teesside and the North East.

Our focus over the coming weeks will be to fully integrate our new colleagues into the Group and introduce them to our specialist teams and resources to enhance and broaden the services they can offer to their clients and the market in general. We see huge opportunity for growth in both Teesside and the North East. We are keen to engage with the leading professionals in the market as we look to recruit into the business to enhance our already strong offering to clients and colleagues.”
