Myerson Solicitors expands its business development team

MSI's Northern UK law member Myerson Solicitors expands its law firm referral scheme with hire from Knights Legal Network.

As part of its continued organic expansion, independent law firm, Myerson Solicitors has appointed Scott Watson (previously of Knights Legal Network) to join its Business Development Team, helping to further develop Myerson Connections – a referral scheme for law firms, solicitors and those operating in the legal sector.

Scott joins Chris Wilson, Head of Business Development, who, over the last few years, has built Myerson Connections to be a hugely successful referral scheme for law firms.

Whilst Myerson is proud to be an award winning, Legal 500 ‘top tier’ law firm (and has recently been added to the Lawyer’s Top 200 UK law firm list), it remains true to its roots - focused on helping, and working with, SME companies, owner managed businesses, entrepreneurs and private individuals.  A quality that makes Myerson Connections the perfect referral partner for small and medium size law firms. In addition to this, Myerson’s culture, collegiate ethos and its ‘one office, one location, organic growth only’ strategy has greatly contributed to its continued growth and success.

Law firms continue to be drawn to Myerson Connections because of Myerson’s personal approach, synergies and similarities with its member law firms and its expertise in areas of law member law firms may not have. It also helps member law firms with conflicts of interest, or when they are operating at capacity and provides practice management support and introductions to other professional advisors.  Myerson pays competitive referral fees, gives discounts to clients and also gives discounts to member law firms when acting for them directly on their own legal matters, making joining Myerson Connections a highly attractive and cost-effective solution.

Chris Wilson, Head of Business Development, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Scott to the team, the expertise and experience he brings from Knights Legal Network is invaluable and it’ll enable us to provide an even better service to our Myerson Connections Members as well as quickly onboard many more law firms who value our culture, ethos, personal approach and the fantastic service we can provide to them and their clients. It’s a very exciting time to be part our journey at Myerson Solicitors and Myerson Connections alike. We’ll be looking to expand the team further in the coming months, if not weeks, to help deal with the demand.”
