29 Mar 2021

Glasgow based Law At Work, the employment law, HR and health & safety specialist, has announced the growth of its business through three acquisitions by parent company Marlowe plc.

In deals worth a combined £5.15m, Dundee-based HR software provider Youmanage; employment law firm and employees relations technology business ESPHR; and third sector specialist HR Services Partnership have been acquired.

The firms will be led by Law At Work (LAW) and Ellis Whittam, which deliver Marlowe's extensive employment law and HR services across the UK. The transaction represents a major step for the group, supporting the overall growth and expansion of its services proposition.

Magnus Swanson, chairman of Law At Work (pictured) said: "Since becoming part of Marlowe, our ambition has been to acquire further businesses that complement our own, in order to strengthen the services we provide to our clients. These acquisitions reinforce our current offering with more high-quality legal expertise, market-leading software and greater capability in our HR consultancy offering.

"I'm very excited about our future, the opportunities that this will bring for our brilliant team, and the enhanced level of support this will offer our SME and mid-market clients."
