Head of Real Estate, Joanne Perritt was delighted to win Property Team of the Year and said:

“Wow! The Real Estate Group at Myerson is absolutely thrilled to have won at the Manchester Legal Awards 2021. It was fantastic to hear that the judges were not only impressed with how the work we do is helping to define the Manchester skyline, but how we have supported our team both personally and professionally during the pandemic. Teamwork is everything at Myerson!”

The awards were held by the Manchester Law Society and successfully revealed on Thursday, 17th June, in an online virtual event. Those successfully shortlisted were judged by prominent business leaders and organisations from the North West business community. 

The process is extremely vigorous and involves both submissions and panel interviews to evaluate the nominees. What a great way to shine a spotlight on the excellent Legal Profession within Manchester.
