Mann Roberts Solicitors has marked its first year the hiring of a new legal director who joins from DWF.

Legal director Colin Vickers comes to Mann Roberts with a track record acting for clients in litigation proceedings. He offers particular expertise in counter-fraud and insurance.

During its first 12 months, Liverpool-based Mann Roberts has provided specialised advice and guidance to specific sectors including construction and engineering, agriculture and energy.

It was launched in March 2022 by managing director David Mann. He left Aaron & Partners in Chester, where he was a partner, to launch the business.

Since qualifying as a solicitor in 2008, David, who is ranked as a Leading Individual in the Legal 500, has built a reputation advising on complex and high value disputes both in the UK and internationally.

His work has a particular emphasis on advising shareholders and partners in owner managed businesses.

Based at No1 Mann Island, Liverpool, Mann Roberts principally advises businesses and entrepreneurs. The firm also offers expertise in international matters.

In Europe, David Mann and relationship manager Frances Mann last year formed part of a trade mission to Copenhagen while further afield the firm has received instructions from Malaysia. The firm is considering opening a second office.

“During our first 12 months, the business has grown from an exciting start up to a forward-thinking law firm with an extensive range of instructions,” said David Mann.  “Bringing in Colin as legal director is the next stage in our development plan.”

In addition to Colin Vickers, Mann Roberts has also appointed associate solicitor Alexander Mullin and paralegal Amanda Chow during its first 12 months. It will also shortly welcome its first finance level 2 apprentice.

“New instructions have accelerated our hiring plans,” continued David.  As we grow the business, we are determined to remain true to our values. We provide a service that we would like to receive and treat our colleagues as we would like to be treated.”
