Our History

Liverpool Legal was founded in 2019 by Robin Makin, managing partner of E Rex Makin & Co., a firm with a long established reputation and link with the wider Liverpool community. We now work in association with E Rex Makin & Co., sharing facilities.

E. Rex Makin & Co. was founded in 1949 by Professor Elkan Rex Makin. He acted in many high profile cases of interest at a local, national and international level. He also provided advice to a variety of celebrities and sports personalities.

E. Rex Makin & Co. grew from small premises on Hackins Hey near Dale Street before moving to above NEMS record shop, owned by Brian Epstein’s family,  on Whitechapel.  Finally E. Rex Makin & Co. moved to it’s current premises in the former Rushworths building on Whitechapel. Those premises are now shared with Liverpool Legal.

Liverpool Legal aims to build on the traditional values and client focused culture at E Rex Makin & Co. to provide an exceptional service to clients time and again. Liverpool Legal has been incorporated to move towards a modern method of practice whilst retaining our traditional values.
