Having worked closely with Silverback Rymer over the last six months, we have grown it from the fourth largest personal injury law firm and Quindell Legal Services is now the UK's largest based on forecast run rate volumes. It is great that we have now completed this acquisition as we enter 2013."

An application was made for 97.66m shares to be admitted to trading on AIM, with admission expected on January 2nd. Quindell will have 3.53bn ordinary shares in issue following admission.
