  • Multiple Acquisitions

    Here at Newell Palmer, acquisitions form an integral part of our growth strategy for 2015 and beyond; we are always on the lookout for firms that will fit in well with our business model. We have a great relationship with Ortus Group; they understand our business principles and core values and as a result they have brokered several of our acquisition deals.

    We are half way through 2015 and with the support of Ortus Group we have recently completed our 35th acquisition in just twelve years. It’s been a great year-to-date and we look forward to strengthening our working relationship with Ortus Group to implement our growth strategy.

  • Executive Search Project

    Colin was directly responsible for my recent move to Moore Blatch LLP. His knowledge of both the legal market as well as the specific firms he works alongside is exceptional.

    He is to be commended for his respectful and thorough approach for both the firm and the candidates he represents. He is one of the most impressive head-hunters I have had the opportunity to work with.
    Accordingly, I recommend him unreservedly to both individuals and firms.

  • Acquisition Search Project

    I employed Colin’s services as a part of the acquisition strategy at DBS Law. He presented me with several excellent opportunities to explore and the first successful acquisition occurred in July 2013.
    He took time to understand our business, is extremely knowledgeable in the legal sector and presented opportunities that clearly fell in-line with the business strategy. He was excellent to work with.
