Q&A with Andrew Matthews

What are you most looking forward to about the challenge ahead?

Many things attracted me to this role, not to mention the firm, its values and its people.  In my first week I have been made so welcome and my diary has filled up immediately with other partners, colleagues and other professionals taking their time to get to know me, which is testament to the size and reputation of the firm.  I am most looking forward to growing our Liverpool presence and building an office of trusted experts to be a firm of choice in the City.  I and others in the firm have a wealth of diverse experience that sets MHA Moore and Smalley apart, and I am certain this will be key to our offering in the city.

Which industry leader would you most like to meet and why?

Husband and wife team Prof Ugur Sahin and Dr Ozlem Tureci – hopefully the creators of the Coronavirus vaccine and the reason we may all get some normality soon!

Who would be invited to your fantasy dinner party?

  • Jeremy Clarkson – for the cars and controversy
  • Prof Brian Cox – to impress with his knowledge
  • Churchill – an inspirational after-dinner speech
  • Prince Harry – he must know a drinking game or two
  • Mary Berry – for a good lemon drizzle

What do you like most about working in Liverpool?

Liverpool is a unique city with so many opportunities – From a capital of culture and football mecca, to one of the fastest growing digital/tech economies in the UK and an ever growing Hollywood film location.  Anyone who visits Liverpool however will know that it is the people who make it what it is and after all, where else can you go shopping in your rollers??!
