JMW Solicitors make Spinningfields the new Hollywood


Manchester-based law firm JMW Solicitors LLP, has brought a piece of Hollywood to Manchester city business district, Spinningfields, acting as a location for a series of new adverts which made their television debut this week. 

The latest series of television advertisements for national legal group, InjuryLawyers4U (IL4U), used the offices of real solicitors from JMW, as well as some of the firm’s floor space as sets for the adverts and its stars; four fictional solicitors.  The adverts encourage people to contact IL4U if they’ve had an accident that wasn’t their fault and wish to make a claim for their injuries. 

The new series of adverts also aims to assure consumers that IL4U and its associated group of solicitors firms, of which JMW is one, does not cold call or cold text, and does not pass on consumer information without consent; both are issues that the government has introduced legislation to combat recently. 

JMW partner and joint head of personal injury, Richard Powell, said: “We are very proud of our association with IL4U and of our membership as one of its panel firms.  We are very happy to support this series of adverts and agree wholeheartedly with the principles behind them.  Making sure that consumers trust the solicitors handling their personal injury claims is vital, and assuring them that their personal information will not be misused is an important part of that. 

“JMW treats every client and their private contact details with the utmost respect and it is abhorrent to us that there are less scrupulous organisations that will quite happily buy and sell consumer information without their prior knowledge and consent.  I sincerely hope that this advert conveys IL4U’s commitment to consumer trust and can help to restore faith in the industry.” 

IL4U has filmed five adverts in total, using the JMW offices and other locations around Spinningfields.  They replace the current adverts, which also favoured Spinningfields as a location. 

Sky 1 television comedy drama, Mount Pleasant, has also made use of the JMW offices as a filming location recently.  They made use of JMW’s lobby to film a scene with the star of the series, and former Rovers Return landlady, Sally Lindsay.  The show is set to air later this year.
