Bill Jones, Managing Partner of leading Manchester based law firm JMW Solicitors LLP, last night won the Outstanding Achievement award at the Manchester Legal Awards.

Legal Executive Stuart Cartwright was also a winner for JMW by being named Legal Executive of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards. Stuart has been with JMW for over 15 years and was the first Legal Executive at JMW to be promoted to Partner in December 2010.

The awards dinner which took place at The Midland Hotel was organised by the Manchester Law Society and was attended by over 500 people.

Bill established JMW Solicitors LLP in 1978 as Jones Maidment Wilson, mainly offering legal aid and criminal advocacy. The firm now offers a broad range of legal services to both commercial and private clients and in recent years has grown substantially and currently has over 30 partners and 145 staff.  The past 12 months has seen some key appointments for JMW including Joy Kingsley joining as Senior Partner and also a record financial turnover for the firm.

Commenting on his award, Bill Jones, Managing Partner at JMW said:

“I am very proud to receive this most prestigious award. I am very lucky to work with so many talented and committed people and over the years we have together made JMW what it is today. Manchester has great talent in the legal sector and to receive this outstanding achievement award is a great honour.”
 
Remarking on Bill’s achievement, Joy Kingsley, Senior Partner at JMW said:

“All the Partners and staff at JMW recognised Bill’s great talent over 33 years of exceptional leadership. We are very pleased that the Manchester legal community supports our view by choosing Bill as the recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award.”
