A Manchester law firm has concluded the acquisition of a prominent North West London firm known for its expertise in property and private client matters.

BBS Law, which is focused on creating and sustaining legal partnerships for businesses and individuals, has added Manuel Swaden in the deal which it said will fortify its position and enhance its ability to serve clients.

The deal, which was completed on April 1, 2024, for an undisclosed sum, will see the firm continue to operate under the name BBS Law.

With approximately 60 lawyers across their offices in Manchester and London the expanded firm will have an even greater capacity to meet the diverse legal needs of its clients.

Manuel Swaden brings a highly skilled and respected team of legal professionals who will move into BBS Law’s Finchley office. The team includes partners Jeremy Manuel, Michael Swaden and Tamara Lester, whose wealth of experience and expertise will further enrich the firm’s capabilities.

The acquisition aligns perfectly with BBS Law’s commitment to providing comprehensive and tailored legal services to its clients, it said.

Dov Black, Managing Partner at BBS Law, said: “We are thrilled to welcome the talented team at Manuel Swaden to the BBS Law family.

“Their expertise and reputation in property and private client matters align perfectly with our own strength in these areas of focus.”

Dov added: “Following our successful acquisition of OGR Stock Denton around 18 months ago we are keen to carry on exploring opportunities where growth is of benefit to our clients.”

Jeremy Manuel said, “We at Manuel Swaden are very excited about joining forces with BBS Law. We believe that combining our expertise with BBS Law’s strong reputation will not only benefit our clients but enhance our ability to deliver exceptional legal services.
