MSI's UK Manchester law firm member, Myerson, is delighted to announce that Bik-ki Irving and Helen Thompson have joined the firm from Cheshire-based SAS Daniels.
Bik-ki was previously a Partner & Head of Wealth Planning at SAS Daniels and joins Myerson Private’s Wills, Trusts & Probate (WTP) team as a Partner. Bik-ki is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and is also a member of Solicitors for the Elderly. She specialises on advising in relation to tax-efficient wills and other inheritance tax planning matters.
Helen joins Myerson as a Partner and will lead the Contentious Probate team. Helen is a member of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) and brings extensive experience of pursuing and settling will and inheritance disputes.
The arrival of Bik-ki and Helen adds further strength to the existing Myerson Private team headed by the experienced Amanda Freeman. The team now consists of eight Partners and nine Solicitors. All non-contentious WTP lawyers in the team are STEP qualified and along with Helen’s ACTAPS membership, this makes them one of the most experienced and qualified teams in the North West. Bik-ki, Helen and Amanda are all recommended by the Legal 500 (2015 edition).
Amanda Freeman, Partner and Head of Myerson Private, said:
“We are delighted that Bik-ki and Helen have joined us. They are both very well respected lawyers in the Manchester/Cheshire legal community and bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the Myerson Private team. The appointment of Bik-ki comes after seeing an increasing demand from existing and new clients in relation to our services for private individuals. Helen’s addition to the team has significantly bolstered its strength and depth in contentious probate matters, which is an area that has grown rapidly over the past few years.”
Myerson was founded in Manchester, Cheshire over 30 years ago and is a leading, full service commercial and private client law firm providing bespoke legal advice to businesses and affluent individuals across Manchester, Cheshire, the UK and beyond.
