Frenkel Topping swoops for Doncaster costs firms in double acquisition

Financial advisory firm Frenkel Topping is acquiring Doncaster-based costs law specialist firms A&M Bacon and Partners in Costs (PIC) for a combined £9 million.

A&M Bacon is a firm of civil and commercial litigation costs specialists, while PIC is one of the UK’s leading specialists in this area, with lawyers and consultants as part of its team.

Frenkel Topping said the acquisitions will strengthen its offering in and consolidation of the pre-settlement professional services marketplace in personal injury and clinical negligence.

Following the acquisition, A&M Bacon chef executive Reuben Glynn and PIC chef executive Teresa Aitken will remain in their current roles.

Richard Fraser, chief executive officer of Frenkel Topping, said: “I have known Reuben and Teresa for many years and have been greatly impressed with what they and their team have built, and I very much look forward to welcoming them into the enlarged business. These acquisitions will further strengthen our offering.”

Glynn added: “I am extremely excited to join the Frenkel Topping Group. A&M Bacon has become the leading costs specialist in local government and Court of Protection. Unfortunately, last year we lost our founder Michael Bacon after a short illness. Michael was a true legal cost legend. Michael would have wholeheartedly supported this opportunity.”

“Together with Frenkel Topping I am looking forward to providing the highest level of service to Professional deputies and their protected parties.”

Aitken said: “The client remains the centre of everything we do at PIC. As a team we are excited to be on board with the Frenkel Topping Group to ultimately ensure that together the injured client receives a seamless service.”

“We’re particularly looking forward to getting involved and helping to shape the knowledge hub through training and opportunities to young adults to achieve their potential as well as the Frenkel Topping charitable foundation for those individuals who through life experience are unable to access damages to help them deal with life’s challenges. Together, as a group, we’re keen to make a real difference to our society.”
