President of Manchester Law Society Announced as Glaisyers Etl’s Senior Partner

Nick Johnson, senior partner at the Manchester-headquartered national law firm Glaisyers ETL, has been elected President of Manchester Law Society. In his new role, he will be taking over from Ward Hadaway’s immediate Past President, Paul Johnson. 

Mr Johnson, a commercial litigation specialist, began his career at the Manchester firm Goldstone Casket and Eva, which merged with Glaisyers in 1993. He was Glaisyers’ managing partner until 2018.

During his 12-month tenure as President of Manchester Law Society Mr Johnson will serve alongside Vice President David Anderson, who is company secretary at the city’s largest barristers set, St John’s Buildings Chambers, and Deputy Vice President Fiona Ledden, city solicitor at Manchester City Council.

Mr Johnson has been a member of Manchester Law Society’s council for three years. His priorities for his year as President include engaging with members, sponsors and committee members, and building stronger relationships with the wider legal, business, professional, political and civic community.

He will also support Manchester Law Society’s chief executive, Fran Eccles-Bech, and her team as they implement the organisation’s business plan. This plan includes the appointment of ambassadors in each corporate member firm, coordinating pro bono work and developing a new website.

Mr Johnson said, “I am honoured to have been elected President of Manchester Law Society, an organisation with a proud history that dates back almost two centuries. After 40 years in the law, I am very much looking forward to taking this opportunity to give back to the profession.

“The Society exists to represent its members, and I encourage them to get in touch and let us know what issues they are facing, and how we can help. 2023 is likely to be a tough year for many in our profession, as it is for business as a whole, and I want to assure our members that we are here for them to provide whatever support we can.”

Manchester Law Society was founded in 1838. Today it represents 3,900 legal professionals and runs a range of educational initiatives and social events.

Glaisyers ETL is a national law firm with offices in Manchester and London. In 2018 it became part of the ETL Global network of professional services businesses.
