New Head of Employment for JMW

06/01/2011

Manchester based law firm JMW Solicitors LLP has appointed a well-known Manchester lawyer as their new Head of Employment.

Ian Tranter joins JMW as Partner and Head of Employment. Ian joins Joy Kingsley, Senior Partner at JMW, who joined the firm from Pannone in September 2010 in a move which surprised many in the city. Ian was a Partner at Pannone with Joy on two previous occasions, progressing from trainee to Partner from 1980 to 1989 and again as a Partner from 2005 to January 2010. He had previously spent 11 years as a Partner at Chaffe Street (now Brabners Chaffe Street).

Ian advises on a broad range of employment matters but his specialisms include corporate re-structures, Tupe, re-organisations, executive terminations, disciplinary and dismissal issues, discrimination, data protection and insolvency implications. His clients include Umbro, Amaze Plc, North West Employers' Association, Wilman Universal and Grant Management UK Ltd.

Commenting on his appointment, Ian Tranter said:

“I am delighted to join JMW as I feel this is a great opportunity to join a dynamic and ambitious firm. I am looking forward to heading up our employment department and the challenge of helping to grow the team further. I am also very pleased to be joining Joy at JMW as I have always had complete faith in her talents to grow and manage a business.”

Joy Kingsley, Senior Partner at JMW said:

"The fact that this will be our third period in Partnership together speaks volumes about Ian's abilities as a leader in employment matters and in developing clients and it is clear that I have the greatest respect for him. I feel that he brings with him an exceptional combination of flair, skill and experience and will be a fantastic asset to JMW by helping our employment team to grow and develop further.”
