Vialegis acquires German company Schollmeyer & Steidl
Last week, Vialegis completed the acquisition of Schollmeyer & Steidl GmbH. Schollmeyer & Steidl GmbH is the reference player in Germany for the search and selection of lawyers and tax specialists. Vialegis, which is the market leader in Belgium in this area and also has offices in Spain and Luxembourg, thereby realizes again part of its international growth ambitions.
“The Belgian market certainly still has growth potential, but our ambition is to become the leading European player in legal staffing solutions”, says Philippe Jadoul, founder and CEO of Vialegis. “Since we are part of House of HR we are able to realize this ambition more quickly. The acquisition of Schollmeyer & Steidl is a very important step. The company has offices in Frankfurt, Cologne, Munich and Dusseldorf and serves the whole German market. Clients are both law firms and corporates and it is recognized for the quality of its services. Seen the synergies with the activities of Vialegis, we will cooperate intensively both in approaching clients and in searching candidates and we will share ‘best practices’.”
The three managers of Schollmeyer & Steidl - Daniel Schollmeyer, Ina Steidl and Barbara von Rohr – stay on board as manager and as minority shareholder.
The company exists since 2006 and employs 15 people. As is the case at Vialegis, all its consultants are (experienced) lawyers (‘for and by lawyers’).
