Departments containing expert business solicitors

Each team at JMW contains specialists in their field, with their expertise covering:

Companies that come to us for assistance in these areas can rest assured we have the knowledge and experience to deal with their issues effectively and efficiently, with us being recognised by the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners, a guide to the Legal Profession, as one of the leading firms in the north west.

We work closely with businesses of all sizes – from SMEs to household names – with 70 per cent of our business coming from existing clients and recommendations, some of which are the most successful companies in the UK.

Although we cover a wide range of legal services for businesses, our business lawyers all have the same outlook when it comes to our approach – creating a close relationship with clients and providing tailored solutions dependant on their individual needs and requirements.

We understand how damaging, time-consuming and expensive legal issues and disputes can potentially be for firms. However, our business lawyers strive to take the hassle and cost out of dealing with such problems, allowing you to concentrate on running your company.
