Meet Steve Harvey, Hillyer McKeown Group Chairman.
I work closely with business owners in Cheshire, Merseyside, Wirral and North Wales, helping them achieve business growth and commercial goals.
As Group Chairman of Hillyer McKeown, I am responsible for ensuring that our clients receive outstanding legal services, unparalleled business advice and guidance. All of this is underpinned by a commitment to delivering unrivalled client service. I drive strategy within HM, which naturally means I have a key Business Development role. Also, my role involves providing strategic counsel to our clients both from a legal perspective and a wider business angle. I lead our corporate and commercial teams, acting for a full range of owner managed businesses (OMBs) through to PLCs.
Growing an innovative and contemporary firm
In response to the massive changes within the traditional legal services market over the last few years, it has been necessary to expand the kind of service we offer to appeal to small and medium-sized businesses which are looking to grow, and perhaps feel stifled in their desire to grow.
I have been instrumental in developing extra commercial services to support our core legal services. These diversified services help businesses during each stage of development and include marketing, financial and business growth services. This integrated approach helps our clients to build successful and growing businesses.
Additional support for business includes the War Room, an intensive 3-hour session which allows business owners and leaders to work on rather than in their business, focusing on the fundamentals. I am proud to say that client feedback has been overwhelmingly positive; many mention that it provided great motivation to move their business forward strategically.
I hold a non-executive role at EA Technology which ensures that advice usually provided after the event is now being delivered in real time for the client.
I am a passionate supporter of the region’s economy. This includes being a Board Member of Cheshire Professionals and providing strategic support to some of the region’s leading sports clubs.
