Wildy & Sons Ltd acquires Hammicks Legal Information Services to create the foremost legal bookseller and information specialist

Wildy & Sons and JS Group are pleased to announce that Wildy’s has acquired Hammicks from the JS Group.

Both Hammicks and Wildy’s have long-served the legal profession as booksellers, content aggregators, subscription agents and information specialists. Hammicks is now joining Wildy’s to form the foremost, independent legal content provider in the UK.

Commenting on the acquisition, John Sinkins, Chairman of Wildy’s, said

“We are delighted to welcome Hammicks to our business. Both businesses have a strong customer service ethos and we will now have the scale and resources to invest in providing the best information and content solutions for the legal profession both in the UK and internationally.

Peter Gray, Chairman and CEO of JS Group, added

“JS Group is focussing on its core higher education market and we could not be happier that Hammicks is joining Wildy’s. We have long respected Wildys and we know they will be tremendous owners of Hammicks and will be able to offer the best service and solutions for the legal market. It has been a pleasure to own Hammicks and I look forward to its continued success in the future.”
