Meadows Ryan Solicitors Limited
(incorporating McNamara Ryan and Beauvoisin & Burgess)

The late Brian Burgess was instrumental, with three others, in founding Lexlink in 1991 and was its Secretary General until his premature death in 2007. His legacy was sustained by his partner Tony Beauvoisin and by John Flood who in 2010 merged Beauvoisin & Burgess into McNamara Ryan and then later merged with Meadows Fraser to form Meadows Ryan LLP in October 2012.

With its principal partners, Peter and Piers Meadows they were enthusiastic that the firm should continue Brian's vision as the exclusive English member of Lexlink.

Through their membership of Lexlink, a team of highly experienced lawyers has assisted an international clientele in a broad range of commercial and private client matters, including acting for small and medium sized companies in both their corporate and commercial needs including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, distribution and agency agreements, complex commercial contracts and the needs of a range of international clients.

The firm also undertakes all kinds of property transactions and private client work and are Notaries Public.
