Acquisition by Metamorph Law

ABS consolidator unveils fourth and largest deal of 2017

BPL, formed in 2005 by solicitors David Bridge and Mark Stimson, specialises in panel-focused residential conveyancing and remortgage work. It also provides more bespoke, high-end residential conveyancing and construction litigation services and commercial property work.

BPL brings revenues in excess of 5m pa and staff of around 100 based in offices in Dorchester, Bristol and Bournemouth to the Metamorph Group. David and Mark remain as directors of BPL Solicitors Limited, where they are joined on the board by Simon Goldhill and Chris Cann.

David will also take the newly created role of National Head of Metamorph Law’s Conveyancing Division, with responsibility for residential property work on both the panel-focused BPL brand and Metamorph’s existing Linder Myers private client brand.

Metamorph’s Founder and Director of Strategy, Simon Goldhill, commented;

“We are delighted to have brought the BPL business and team of people into the Metamorph business. This deal gives us real presence in the residential conveyancing market, adding a recognised and respected brand to our stable.

Getting David along with this business also enables us to consolidate all of our transactional property operations into a new national business division under his leadership. As a pioneer and innovator in the legal market we are delighted to have him join our senior team.”

David Bridge commented;

“The opportunity to join the Metamorph business gives BPL an excellent platform on which to continue to grow and develop its brand. It secures the continuing investment into our systems and people that will allow us to continue to build on the excellence of service that we look to offer to our clients.

Personally, I relish the opportunity to work at a national level with the Metamorph team and help to deliver their ambitious plans for this business.”
