Recent highlights include:

  • being the lead adviser on a multi-million pound disposal of a chemicals business including the roll-over by the existing management team;
  • providing set-up and structuring advice including compliance with SEIS and EIS fundraising for a film production company;
  • acting on behalf of a rapidly growing on-line fashion business on its first stage of fundraising and investment by a group of private investors;
  • acting for a ‘green deal’ business with a complex re-organisation to effect the exit for a majority shareholder, ring-fencing the existing value for the benefit of the remaining shareholders and putting in place an EMI option scheme to incentivise senior employees of the business; and
  • advising on an unusual and complex ‘PPF-drop in’ transaction whereby the group’s final salary pension scheme obligations entered the Pension Protection Fund – only the 27th deal of its kind undertaken in the UK.

On the sale of their business, a recent client commented: Nina at JMW guided us through every step of the sale of our business. Her insight and attention to detail was extremely useful, which put our minds at ease throughout the entire process. We felt supported from offer to completion, and we will definitely be using her again in the future.”


Nina studied law for her undergraduate degree and then went on to complete a masters degree in International Business Law at Manchester University.

Nina was awarded ‘Employee of the Year’ by the JMW Board in 2011 after being nominated by peers across the firm.


Outside of work, Nina enjoys running, going to the gym and walking in the countryside with family and friends.
