Local law firm continues expansion into South Yorkshire

Sills & Betteridge LLP has announced its recent acquisition of boutique legal practice Rawson Family Law of Sheffield along with the appointment of its Principal Solicitor Louise Rawson.

The firm, which has offices within Lincolnshire and the East Midlands, moved into South Yorkshire in 2018 and 12 months later merged with full service legal practice Bridge Sanderson Munro of Doncaster, Bawtry, Thorne and Wath Upon Dearne.

This latest development realises the firm’s aspiration to expand into Sheffield, where it ultimately plans to provide a full range of legal services.

Solicitor Louise has over twenty years’ experience in all areas of family law including divorce and financial matters, cohabitational disputes including applications to the court, children issues including contact and care arrangements and emergency applications for domestic violence injunctions.

Louise said: “It has been hugely rewarding building up Rawson Family Law and supporting my clients through their relationship and family issues, but I feel the time is now right to let a large firm take over the development of the practice as part of its own operations.

“I am looking forward to a new era working with Sills & Betteridge and enjoying the support of my new colleagues.”

Head of Family Law, Helen Derry said: “Louise combines a sensitive, personable touch with a pragmatic approach to achieving the very best outcomes for her clients.

“She will make an excellent addition to the family team in Doncaster and help us to drive forward our plans for Sheffield.”
