SimplyBiz acquires estate planning firm APS Legal

SimplyBiz has acquired estate planning, wills and probate specialist APS Legal & Associates for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition includes its subsidiaries Simply Legal & Associates and Assured Probate Services. 

The latest deal to acquire APS Legal, which has headquarters in Nottinghamshire, follows the acquisition of employee benefits software provider Staffcare in December.

It acquired 360 Legal in November, a firm which supplies support services to law firms. 

APS offers a white-label service allowing advisers to offer estate planning, wills and probate services. It currently has 600 member firms.

Simply Biz chairman Ken Davy says: “The purchase of APS creates an important opportunity for SimplyBiz to help the firms and advisers we serve further diversify their skills and improve income streams by enhancing their client services.  I am therefore particularly delighted to be joining the Board of APS as chairman.”
