MSI's North England law member Myerson is set to grow with the addition of a senior commercial solicitor.
TheAltrincham-based law firm Myerson Solicitors LLP continues to expand their Corporate and Commercial Department with new hire Richard Meehan joining the team as a Senior Associate.
After celebrating their most successful year to date, alongside winning ‘Corporate and Commercial Team of the Year 2021’ at the Manchester Legal Awards, the team continue to expand their expertise and number of legal specialists with Richard now joining the team.
Richard was a Senior Associate at DWF and has over ten years of experience, specialising in Commercial, IT and IP law. He has worked with clients including a national supermarket chain, a premier league football club, the operators of a public transport ticketing scheme and a road tolling scheme, and a range of clients purchasing or providing IT services, becoming a trusted advisor to the businesses he represents. Richard has spent time in-house on secondment with a national broadcaster and a local authority, as well as with businesses in the hospitality and telecoms sectors.
Carla Murray, Partner and Head of the Commercial team at Myerson Solicitors, said:
“Richard has a vast amount of knowledge and experience, enabling him to advise our diverse and ever-growing client base. We have seen a steady increase in commercial work over the last 2 years, particularly within the IT/Tech industry and we are thrilled to have Richard’s extensive knowledge of commercial contracts within this area, including agreements relating to the development, supply and maintenance of hardware and software solutions, website and e-commerce arrangements, as well as the provision of Software-as-a-Service. We know he will be a great asset to our existing and future clients within this area of law”.
Richard has acted for clients in the public and private sectors and has experience representing various businesses, including SMEs, small start-ups and owner-managed companies, and public bodies and PLCs. He uses his experience of acting on both the buy-side and the supply-side to provide pragmatic, solution-focused advice.
Akeel Latif, Partner and Head of the Corporate and Commercial Group, added:
“I could not be more thrilled to welcome Richard to the team at Myerson. I am so proud of the teams achievements over the last few years, and we are now one of the most reputable Corporate and Commercial teams in the North West, doing some fantastic work for a wide range of quality clients within various sectors.
We have also been thrilled to welcome Chris Moss, as our twenty-fourth partner in the firm. With both Chris and Richard joining the team, I have no doubt we will produce the highest quality work and advice for our clients within the UK.
Being recognised consistently as a Top Tier Legal 500 firm as well as the ‘Corporate and Commercial Team of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards 2021’ supports our capability to deal with increasingly high value and complex transactions. With no individual billing targets, our clients and employees value the personal and collegiate approach we take whilst providing high-quality service and technical expertise to rival that provided in larger national law firms. The recognition reflects the hard work, client service and dedication the team provides and we are thrilled this allows us to continue growing the team further”.
The firm continues to recruit across various areas, including Corporate and Commercial, Property, Business Services, and further areas.
