Employment Team at Pearson Solicitors & Financial Advisers bolstered by senior hires

A triple appointment from Linder Myers Solicitors has significantly strengthened Pearson Solicitors & Financial Advisers Ltd’s Employment Law Department.

Alan Lewis who is recognised by The Legal 500 as a ‘leading individual’ joins as a Partner. He will work alongside existing Pearson Employment Partner, Susan Mayall. Alan brings with him 30 years of experience. In addition, joining Pearson alongside Alan are team members from his former practice: Ben Williams, an employment solicitor and Robyn Saunders, a paralegal.

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

Over the past few years, the client base of the employment department at Pearson Solicitors has grown significantly.  It represents large national companies, SMEs and private individuals across England and Wales.

Commenting on the new hiring, Pearson 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”.

The team will be based at the law firm’s North Manchester commercial office at Hollinwood Business Centre

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 over the years and have always been impressed with the depth of legal expertise that the practice offers, which easily rivals many city centre 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”.
