Knights is today delighted to announce the completion of its acquisition of Keebles LLP and welcomes new colleagues who will extend the Group’s presence in South Yorkshire.

Having grown its position significantly in Leeds and York over recent months, the completion of Keebles provides Knights with entry into the important city of Sheffield and the wider South Yorkshire area, complementing the Group’s existing presence in Nottingham and Leeds.

Knights’ existing team will be joined by a talented team of professionals with a strong reputation across Yorkshire and beyond. Through acquisitions and organic growth, Knights now operates across 16 office locations and is supported by over 1250 colleagues.

James Sheridan, Client Services Director at Knights commented:  “We are thrilled to be completing our acquisition of Keebles today 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 the South Yorkshire market.

Our focus over the coming weeks will be to fully integrate our new colleagues into the Group and to give them the benefit of our financial and back office support to enhance and broaden the services they offer to their clients and the market in general. We see huge opportunity for growth in South Yorkshire and we are keen to engage with the leading professionals in the market as we look to recruit into the business in Sheffield.”

A full suite of services including Real Estate, Dispute Resolution, Corporate, Employment and Private Client are strengthened by sector specialisms and non-legal services including Aviation, Healthcare, Mines and Minerals, Telecoms, Town Planning, Regulatory and Tax Planning.

Keebles’ Conveyancing will continue as a trading style under the name of Knights Professional Services Limited for an interim period.
