Nelsons was formed in 1983 as an independent partnership with Tim Hastings and two other solicitors in a small Nottingham office. Since then we have grown to become one of the leading law firms in the region with offices in Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, providing a full range of legal services for businesses and individuals.
Our growth has been largely the result of strategic mergers and acquisitions. In 1999 and 2000, we expanded into Derby and Leicester and in just 18 months acquired seven smaller firms. In April 2015, we acquired the historic Derby firm, Moody and Woolley.
With a reputation for forward thinking and innovation, we were one of the first law firms in the region to become a Limited company in April 2010 and were granted Alternative Business Structure (ABS) status in 2014, which allows non-lawyers to take a more influential role and shares within the business.
