ALTRINCHAM-based law firm Myerson Solicitors was named Medium Law Firm of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards 2018.

Carl Newton, managing partner at Myerson Solicitors, received the award at the gala dinner at the Midland Hotel in Manchester, attended by more than 650 people.

The award follows the firm’s move to its new 20,000 square foot office building in Altrincham, a move that was necessitated by its spectacular growth over recent years.

Manchester Legal Awards 2018, which is in its ninth year, saw the awards receive a record number of entries, and tickets for the event sold out.

Organised by the Manchester Law Society, the awards recognise and reward the very best legal talent Greater Manchester has to offer.

Mr Newton said: “We are so proud to have won this award. It is a powerful recognition of the dedication and hard work put in by each and every member of the Myerson team over the past 10 years, all of whom have committed themselves to the pursuit of excellence in the way we operate and serve our clients from our base in Altrincham.

“Myerson has flourished in recent years and it is fantastic to be recognised for the tremendous service our team provides to clients and the local community."

The awards were judged by prominent business leaders and organisations from the North West business community.

The process is extremely vigorous and involved both submissions and panel interviews to evaluate the nominees.

Myerson is a Legal 500 ‘top tier’ rated commercial law firm.
