Beyond Corporate Law, part of the Beyond Professional Services Group, has recruited three new members of staff, with a director, an assistant solicitor and a paralegal all joining the Manchester-based law firm this month.
Andy Herricks, who joins as director, was a founding partner of Garricks, a niche commercial firm based in Blackburn. He brings with him more than 20 years’ high-level experience in advising SME and owner-managed clients across the North West on a wide range of corporate, commercial and intellectual property matters. Andy acts mainly for entrepreneurs and owner-managers, handling corporate transactions from shares sales, acquisitions and MBOs through to advising on complex shareholders’ agreements, re-organisations, share buy-backs and de-mergers. In addition, he offers particular experience in the manufacturing and technology sectors.
“Beyond Corporate Law has emerged, in a very short space of time, as a dynamic and disruptive firm with a very exciting range of entrepreneurial clients,” he said. “I am extremely pleased to be part of such a vibrant and positive team.”
Alexander Redford joins Beyond Corporate Law as assistant solicitor. He has held roles with various law firms including Slater and Gordon Lawyers, and latterly Hargreaves Mounteney, where he was a trainee in the Commercial department, working on shareholder agreements, contracts, terms and conditions and other matters within the scope of business-to-business dealings.
The final member of the trio is Matthew Fearn, who joins the firm in the role of paralegal. He comes to Beyond Corporate Law from JMW Solicitors. He will work on corporate transactions, supporting the senior team.
Jim Truscott, partner, said: ‘”These are exciting times for Beyond Corporate, as we develop further our highly regarded corporate and commercial offering. We have created a structure which offers meaningful career paths for both non-qualified and qualified lawyers, as well as our support team.
“We have made no secret of our determination to disrupt the legal market, and a key element of that strategy is to employ progressive, assured people who believe in our business model and culture.
“Andy, Matthew and Alex bring with them a wealth of talent and I am confident they will make a significant contribution to Beyond Corporate Law, as we continue our drive to deliver a genuinely modern service that goes above and beyond that which is expected in the legal sector.”
