Law firm, Linder Myers, sold in pre-pack deal

31 May 2016

The Manchester-based firm was bought by Metamorph Law on Friday in a pre-pack administration deal. 

Andrew Hosking, Carl Jackson and Sean Bucknall from Quantuma were appointed joint administrators to the firm. Upon appointment, Linder Myers was sold to Metamorph Law – a business looking to acquire up to 60 others. 

CEO, Simon Goldhill, said in a statement:

“In addition to Linder Myers providing a very dedicated professional team of lawyers and support staff focused on the needs of their clients, they also have the support functions required to service a multi-office firm of around 200 staff. This merger gives us the base on which we can now anchor our operations and seek to build with subsequent acquisitions nationwide.”

The law firm has had problems in the past and filed a notice of intention to appoint administrators back in 2014. However, they avoided going down that route by restructuring their debt and securing new investment.
