Swindon based Online Legal Services Ltd, better known by their trading name “Divorce-Online” have acquired 100% ownership of Peter Thomas Law Limited a family law solicitors practice and alternative business structure based in South Wales.
The firms name will shortly change to OLS Solicitors to reflect the new ownership.
Peter Thomas Solicitor, will continue as head of legal Practice and Compliance officer of finance and administration.
A new office will open in Swindon in the summer and recruitment has already begun to find solicitors and other legal professionals to join the firm and premises have been purchased to accommodate the new office.
Being owned by OLS will enable OLS solicitors to take advantage of the parent company’s internet presence and marketing expertise as well as their financial backing and innovative technology.
The firm will operate on a fixed fee menu where possible, rather than hourly rates as has been the traditional charging method for solicitors in the past and will offer clients their own internet portal to track progress of their cases, and will use apps, text messaging and other messaging platforms rather than just relying on the phone system and emails as most law firms do.
Mark Keenan, the Joint MD of Online Legal Services and OLS Solicitors said “We have over time become one of the largest single providers of uncontested divorce services in the UK and our web sites are well placed to refer more complex cases to the law firm where there is over 20 years of experience in a range of family law problems. We have been working with the law firm for a number of years and it made sense for us to acquire our own firm to pass the work to.”
“We have to remember that in 5 years’ time our clients will be the generation where they don’t even own a land line and everything is done on their mobile devices and our customer service needs to match how they communicate.”
Although primarily catering to a national and international customer base, OLS Solicitors want to help people in Swindon and surrounding villages with their family law problems and we will look to hold free weekly surgeries and as well as helping local advice charities.
