Scott joins Myerson from Mills & Reeve. Previous to this he was a Partner at George Davies before its merger with Mills & Reeve in 2013. Scott was also previously a Partner at JMW. He specialises in advising individuals and SMEs in relation to a wide range of corporate matters, including acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, investments and employee share schemes.
Along with Myerson’s Head of Corporate Commercial, M. Akeel Latif, Scott has also been ranked as ‘Up and Coming’ in the 2014 edition of Chambers & Partners.
The Firm would also like to welcome the arrival of Chris Wilson, who joins the Corporate Commercial department as an Assistant Solicitor. Chris completed his training contract at Halliwells before joining the Corporate Finance team at Freeth Cartwright. Chris specialises in mergers and acquisitions, group reorganisations and re-financings.
The arrival of Scott and Chris adds further strength and experience to the existing team at Myerson headed by Partner, M. Akeel Latif. In total the Corporate Commercial department now has seven lawyers, including Partner, Andrew Brown, who joined the firm from Linder Myers in 2012.
M. Akeel Latif, Partner and Head of Corporate Commercial at Myerson, said:
“We are delighted that Scott has agreed to join us. Scott is a very well respected Corporate Commercial lawyer in the Manchester legal community and has a portfolio of clients that he has looked after since he was at JMW. The appointment of Chris is in-keeping with our policy of recruiting solicitors who have trained and worked at large city centre or national firms. To keep pace with the expansion of our commercial client base these appointments further increase the Firm’s strength in-depth. More and more mid-sized and large businesses and in-house counsel who traditionally use more expensive City Centre lawyers are now instructing us as a credible out-of-town alternative.”
