Liverpool Chamber has launched a new bespoke legal team for its members, in conjunction with Morecrofts Solicitors.
The joint project will give Chamber members immediate access to a range of Morecrofts legal services, including commercial, property and employment law as they bid to plot their recovery from the pandemic.
The Liverpool Chamber Legal Team will be operated on a ‘triage’ basis, whereby a dedicated team of Morecrofts lawyers will be on hand to receive enquiries from Chamber members and respond to them in accordance with their urgency and complexity through an initial free consultation.
Morecrofts Solicitors is a strategic partner of Liverpool Chamber and this new relationship reaffirms the growing connection between the two organisations, which are both headquartered in the Cotton Exchange building.
Alison Lobb, managing Partner at Morecrofts, said:
“We are pleased to embark on our new Liverpool Chamber Legal Team and we look forward to supporting members across a range of matters.
“As organisations begin to look ahead and plan for the future, they will undoubtedly face challenges and questions that require the support of qualified legal expertise and we are delighted to put our team at their disposal.”
Paul Cherpeau, chief executive of Liverpool Chamber, said:
“We speak to businesses in the Liverpool City Region every day who are facing a myriad of challenges around the effective recruitment of people, complicated tenancy and property issues or accessing funding for their recovery or growth projects.
“Having dedicated legal support on hand, referred by the Chamber and handled expertly by Morecrofts, will give them an extra layer of certainty and reassurance as they explore new markets or expand their footprint.”
