The acquisition comes a year on from the creation of Simplify and adds CTW to the group’s stable of market-leading businesses which also include conveyancing firms Advantage Property Lawyers, DC Law, JS Law & Premier Property Lawyers (each of which is a Top 10 conveyancer in its own right), the leading conveyancing panel management and property services specialist Move with Us, together with My Home Move and the QualitySolicitors brand and marketing network. With the addition of CTW to the group, Simplify now completes more home mover transactions than the next 4 groups of conveyancing firms combined, and panel manages more still. The acquisition also confirms Simplify’s position as the largest conveyancing group in Greater London by transaction volumes*.
David Grossman, CEO of Simplify said “The strategic acquisition of CTW adds further strength to Simplify’s market leading group. We acquired CTW because of its excellent reputation, strong team and scale in London and the South East, which will complement Simplify’s own strengths. In a turbulent time for the housing market, it is great to be able to look forward and continue delivering our plans for growth and to further strengthen our position as the undisputed number 1 in UK conveyancing”.
