Myerson's location, culture and expertise make it unique. Founded in 1984, Myerson is an independent and full-service law firm based in a modern office in the affluent Cheshire market town of Altrincham at the heart of the vibrant northern powerhouse and close to both Manchester airport and Manchester city-centre.

Myerson has grown rapidly in recent years, through organic growth, and has doubled in size in the last three years alone. The firm currently has 19 partners and a fee-earning strength of over 50 specialist lawyers. Over the next 12 months, total employment figures are likely to exceed 100, as Myerson further grows and develops both its commercial and private divisions.

Myerson has built its reputation by recruiting and training only the finest lawyers. All of Myerson's lawyers have developed their experience through either Myerson's bespoke training scheme or at-large City or regional firms. Myerson also recruits lawyers who are personable and approachable, balanced and pragmatic, efficient and focused on achieving specific client objectives.

Myerson's relationship with its clients is of paramount importance, which is why many clients stay with the firm for decades.

Whilst being an independent law firm, Myerson enjoys international reach through its active membership of MSI Global, an international association of over 250 independent legal and accountancy firms in over 100 counties.
