National law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has expanded its commercial and private client litigation team with the appointment of a new consultant.

Alex Megaw joins the Clarke Willmott Manchester office, bringing extensive experience having qualified in 1977. Alex has been an equity partner based in Manchester with local, national and international firms continuously since 1979. He was appointed as a Deputy District Judge in 1998.

Most recently he was the founding member and managing partner of Manchester commercial law firm Freeman Fisher and was also the managing partner of the Manchester office of Davies Arnold Cooper until its merger with Beachcroft.

Alex said: “I join Clarke Willmott to add to its already excellent commercial litigation and insolvency offering. I specialise in claims involving commercial contracts, shareholder and partnership disputes, including specifically medical and legal partnerships, injunctions and search orders, corporate and personal insolvency and professional regulation.

“I look forward to bringing my expertise to this well-renowned firm.”

John Flint, partner and head of the commercial and private client litigation team in Manchester, said: “We have a busy and rapidly growing team specialising in complex, high-profile commercial litigation disputes and I am certain Alex will be a huge asset to our team.  Alex has a wealth of experience which will greatly enhance our experience and the quality of our offering.

“We are committed to expanding our work in the sector and building on our existing and growing reputation in Manchester, as recognised recently by both Chambers and Legal 500.”

Clarke Willmott is a national firm with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
