Coole Bevis acquires Fleming & Co

Coole Bevis LLP, has announced that it has acquired Fleming & Co Solicitors, a Family Law practice based in Eastbourne.

Karen Fleming, an experienced Divorce Solicitor, founded Fleming & Co in 2017, following an extensive career working in senior positions at law firms across Sussex, including Woolley Bevis Diplock, which was one of the legacy firms that merged with Coole & Haddock in 2016 to form Coole Bevis LLP.

Fleming & Co has a registered office in Eastbourne and specialises in providing Family Law advice to clients across East and West Sussex.

The acquisition will see Fleming & Co’s clients transfer to the experienced team of Family Lawyers at Coole Bevis. The team comprises Susan Knight, Partner and Head of the Department, Julia Dyson, Partner (both trained Collaborative Lawyers) and James Leach, Solicitor, whilst Karen will join as a Consultant.

Karen commented:

“I have known Susan and Julia for many years. Our approach to dealing with clients is similar; providing an empathetic ear coupled with a great deal of expertise to ensure the best outcome. I know that my clients will be in safe hands with Coole Bevis’s Family team representing them.”

“I was looking for a like-minded firm that I could trust to take on my client matters. Having previously worked as a Partner at Woolley Bevis Diplock’s Brighton office, I recognised that our firms shared similar values and that Coole Bevis would continue to offer my clients an exceptional level of service.”

Susan Knight, Head of the Family Department said:

“The acquisition of Fleming & Co marks an exciting new phase in the continued growth of the Family Department and we are looking forward to welcoming and working with Karen’s clients.”
