Corporate Team Advise on North West Merger

Turner Parkinson’s Corporate team have acted on the buyout and merger of two insurance brokers in the North West.

Focused on niche products across the UK, Cheshire-headquartered Bollington Insurance Brokers and Old Trafford-based Wilsons Insurance Brokers operate complementary product lines in commercial and personal insurance. The new structure, Bollington Wilson Group, will generate annual gross written premiums in excess of £120m.

TP’s Head of Corporate James Sheridan led a team consisting of Partner Andrew Sturge, Associate David Hayes, Solicitor Luke Philpott and Paralegal Jonathan Garner.

The team advised Gareth Hooper and John Wilson on the transaction. Wilson commented “There are many opportunities across commercial and personal insurance broking that can be enhanced by increased scale. The merger of Bollington and Wilsons creates a compelling platform from which to realise those opportunities.”
