JMW office has starring role in ITV drama


Manchester based law firm JMW Solicitors LLP has featured as a location in hit ITV drama Scott and Bailey.

The detective drama Scott and Bailey used JMW’s offices in November 2012 to film a screen with ex Coronation Street actress Suranne Jones, whose character DC Rachel Bailey is subject to a hearing in front of the Police Complaints Commission. JMW’s main board room featured in the 2nd episode of the 3rd series of the hit show which is predominately shot in and around Manchester and locations such as the Spinningfields based restaurant Giraffe and the Grapes Pub have been seen in recent episodes. Scott and Bailey is produced by Red Production Company who approached JMW’s Joint Head of Personal Injury Richard Powell about using the office as a filming location.

It is not the first time JMW’s offices have featured on the television. In series two of Sky 1’s hit comedy Mount Pleasant, starring Sally Lindsay, the entrance of the office can be seen as an entrance to a psychiatrists practice. JMW‘s 1st floor has also acted as a set for an Injury Lawyers 4 U advert which was filmed last April.

Commenting on the filming Bill Jones, Managing Partner at JMW said;

“We are delighted that our office has been chosen as a filming location for the hit drama Scott and Bailey It is pleasing to be associated with a good Manchester based television series. We hope to have the opportunity to show case our offices in this way in the future. ”
