Legal practice makes perfect appointment

Legal practice makes perfect appointment

Nov 01, 2013

Aquarium Software has announced the appointment to the Board of Neil Myerson, to the new position of non-executive director. A highly respected practitioner in the field of commercial law, Myerson’s selection comes amid several other senior appointments at the firm, all with a strong legal background, and is seen as further reaffirming Aquarium’s commitment to clients in the emerging and converging legal, insurance and professional services sectors. 

“Neil’s reputation precedes him and we are delighted to have secured his services as a non-executive director,” said Managing Director, Edward Shropshire. “Neil’s appointment will help ensure that our future planning and policy making is done in line with our target markets and further demonstrates our commitment to our clients in these fields.” 

Neil has been recruited as a non-exec to utilise his considerable experience gained in over 30 years running his own commercial law practice in Manchester. This should ensure Aquarium gets it right first time when supporting existing professional service clients, and is ahead of the game when creating compelling new propositions for prospective clients.

“I am delighted to be working with Aquarium and I’m sure my experience is a good fit for them at this crucial stage of the company’s development,” said Myerson. “I have always placed great importance on client care and loyalty and as a result many of my firm’s clients have worked with me continuously since my early days in practice. This is the kind of culture we’re looking to engrain into the Aquarium mindset as a given.”

Myerson is a trained mediator and in addition to his ongoing work as a consultant, he is also a member of the Board of Governors of the University of Bolton and now adds his role at Aquarium to his growing list of credentials.                                                          

“I have worked within a number of industries over the years and have assisted my clients to develop their businesses through focused legal advice combined with sound business and strategic direction and I am looking forward to doing the same with Aquarium,” added Neil. “The company’s growth in clients from the insurance, legal and professional service sectors demonstrates that Aquarium is already doing something right and I am looking forward to seeing what I can add to the mix.”

“Technology has progressed way beyond traditional case management systems over the past few years, allowing staff at all levels to now concentrate on more important legal and service matters,” added Myerson. “In practice, Aquarium means reduced administration, reduced risk and vastly increased client satisfaction and interaction, in other words, the difference between practice growth and stagnation.”
