Specialist administrators at Quantuma have been appointed over Manchester law firm Almond Solicitors Ltd.

Andrew Hosking and Sean Bucknall were appointed as joint administrators of Almond Solicitors Ltd on 24 November 2017.

The firm was founded in May 2011, and employed 11 staff.

Quantuma director Sean Bucknall said: “While the firm has had to be placed into administration, it has been possible to secure a sale of the entire business as a going concern to Aticus Law Ltd, which will be the successor practice, thereby ensuring the protection of client interests.”

Aticus Law Ltd has offices in Manchester and Wilmslow.

Samantha Palmer from Ashfords LLP, who has been appointed as the Solicitor Manager, said: “Ashfords’ Professional & Financial Risks team are very pleased to provide the essential regulatory support so as to ensure that clients’ interests have continued to be protected.

“As Joint Solicitor Managers, Jo Creamer and I are ensuring the safe transfer of client files and client monies so as to ensure that clients enjoy seamless excellent service with their new firms.”

Quantuma is recognised as one of the country’s leading specialist in handling insolvencies in the legal sector.

In January this year, Andrew Hosking and Sean Bucknall were appointed administrators to King & Wood Mallesons LLP and Quantuma has also handled formal law firm appointments including Jeffrey Green Russell, Challinors Solicitors, Davenport Lyons, Linder Myers LLP, St John Law, Isaac Abraham, Maitland Hudson and Prolegal Ltd.
