Coffin Mew joins leading UK law group Knights plc

Coffin Mew is excited to be joining Knights, an ambitious firm with a strong and growing reputation as it expands across the UK.

Having built a leading position in Portsmouth and across the South East, and with a strong legal and management team in place, Coffin Mew was a natural fit to become part of the Knight group.

With a 130-year history, Coffin Mew is a leading independent law firm based primarily in Portsmouth with offices in Southampton, Brighton and Newbury. The South East represents an attractive growth market for legal and professional services. Coffin Mew is a full-service law firm with particular strength in commercial real estate and private wealth, adding scale to Knights’ existing offering.

Miles Brown, CEO, Coffin Mew comments; “We are looking forward to benefiting from the Group’s scale which will allow us to more fully meet the strong demand, and need for broader technical skills, we are seeing from our clients, while greater central resource and support will better enable us to fulfil our growth potential, as part of a larger Group.”

Commenting on the acquisition, David Beech, CEO of Knights said; “We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Coffin Mew, a well-reputed firm which has a strong cultural fit with Knights. The acquisition allows us to significantly expand our presence in the South East, by entering a number of key new locations, as we continue to make good progress in achieving our ambition to become the leading legal and professional service business outside of London.”
