Our History

About BG Solicitors LLP

BG Solicitors is one of the oldest established practices in Grimsby. Set up by the late Mr Tom Beetenson on 1st January 1944, he was joined in 1953 by Lawrence Gibbon on 1st January 1944, he was joined in 1953 by Lawrence Gibbon and the firm’s name as it still remains today was established.

Since those early days the Practice has grown steadily and is now one of the largest and most respected in the area. Our clients, both private and commercial, demand a first class Legal Service, and through our commitment to quality standards throughout all areas of the Practice, we ensure a first class service is what they receive.

Expanding into Lincolnshire B&G’s Grimsby Office in the late 1930's when it housed a doctor's surgery. In 2007 we incorporated the business and staff of Louth based Scammell & Braithwaite into Beetenson & Gibbon.

The merging of this well respected firm gives us a town centre Louth location that services the needs of not only the local Louth clients but also those from the many surrounding villages.

The Louth office offers a full range of services including:

•     Family & matrimonial
•     Probate and private client work
•     Commercial services
•     Conveyancing
•     Litigation advice

In 2009 we also introduced our free drop-in Legal Advice Clinic based at our Louth office every Friday between 9am and 5pm. No appointment is needed.

Establishing a base in Scunthorpe, in 2010,following the appointment of an Administrator to the former practice of Martin & Haigh, the assets of the former practice were acquired by Beetenson & Gibbon. This gave us a fantastic opportunity to expand Beetenson and Gibbon into North Lincolnshire.

The Scunthorpe office continues to offer a broad range of services to clients on both a local and national level including :
•     Accident claims and Personal Injury
•     Children and Child Care Law
•     Divorce and Family Law
•     Mediation
•     Collaborative Law Services
•     Residential property conveyancing
•     Wills, probate and Estate Administration
•     Elderly Client Services

In 2013 we changed to an LLP and changed our name to BG Solicitors LLP, but our values and approach remains those of a family practice.
