08 Oct 2020

Chorley-headquartered FL360 – trading as Handl Group – has acquired a Hampstead counterpart.

Established in 1987, Tessa Gough & Associates specialises in expert witness reports, rehabilitation and care management services to the personal injury sector.

Founder Tessa Gough will remain with the organisation, continuing her developmental work and taking on cases.

The deal is set to solidify Handl Group's position in the industry, broadening its footprint of experts. It follows last year's acquisition of Harrison Associates.

Graham Pulford, chief executive of Handl Group, said: "As part of a strategic move to expand our foothold in the expert witness field, I’m delighted to welcome Tessa Gough & Associates to the group.

"I believe we can add real value here and create growth opportunities due to our agility and deep understanding of the legal and insurance markets."

Gough added: "The evident commitment to retaining the quality that our reputation has been built on and driving forward the growth of the business were both key factors in negotiations and this provides reassurance not only to our loyal customer base, but also to the experienced and dedicated staff and associates."
