Linder Myers Employment Team joins Pearson

  • Posted on

Pearson Solicitors in North Manchester has significantly strengthened its Employment Law department with a triple appointment from Linder Myers Solicitors.

Leading Employment Law Team

Saddleworth resident Alan Lewis who is recognised by The Legal 500 as a 'Leading Individual' joins as a Partner and Employment Law Solicitor. Alan will work alongside the existing Employment Law Partner, Susan Mayall bringing with him over 30 years of experience. In addition, Alan is also joined by Ben Williams an Employment Solicitor and Robyn Saunders a Paralegal in Employment Law.

The expansion of the employment department has been made possible through continued business growth and the strategic development of the corporate and commercial offering, which provides a viable alternative to city centre law firms.

Over the past few years, the client base of the employment law department at Pearson Solicitors has grown significantly.  It represents large national companies, SMEs and private individuals across England and Wales. The team from Linder Myers Solicitors will join Susan Mayall and the employment team at our commercial office in North Manchester.

Commenting on the new appointments to the team, Pearson Solicitor Director, Chris Burke, said:

“We are delighted to welcome on board Alan, Ben and Robyn, they are a great addition to an already flourishing department and further complement and strengthen our commercial service.  We see this strategic hire as a platform to enable us to carry out our ambitious growth plans.  It positions the firm for the future and bolsters our presence in both the North West and nationally”.

Partner and Employment Law Solicitor Alan Lewis said:

“Having worked in Manchester and led a national team of employment lawyers for many years, I decided to make a move to my home town. I have kept a close track on Pearson Solicitors over the years and have always been impressed with the depth of legal expertise that the practice offers, which easily rivals many city centre law firms. What particularly attracted me to Pearson was the warm, collegiate environment that exists between the specialist departments and a genuine team spirit and desire to collaborate to provide the best multi-disciplinary services to clients.  The firm is also pretty unique in being able to offer financial advice together with its full range of legal services to individuals and companies”.
