Joe joined JMW in January 2022 as a solicitor in our thriving family law team.

Joe has experience in all areas of family law matters, with particular expertise in high-net worth financial remedy and children cases, including those with international elements. Joe has experience with jurisdictional issues, and has specific experience with Australia, Scotland and the United States.

He advises clients on a wide range of family law matters, including but not limited to:

Together with his legal expertise and knowledge, Joe is recognised for his outstanding client care and emotional intelligence. He is conscious that there is no one-size fits all approach to family law, offering bespoke and pragmatic advice to each client’s requirements,  supporting clients to ensure that any issue is handled with the upmost care and attention.

He is also a member of Resolution and promotes a constructive approach to family issues considering, in particular, the needs and best interests of any children.

Often supporting high profile clients, Joe does so with the utmost sensitivity and discretion, looking to ensure that the personal matters which underlie his instruction stay out of the public spotlight.

Joe’s commentary on family law issues as diverse as cryptoassets, no-fault divorce and child abduction have been featured in Barrister Magazine, PS Magazine and LexisPSL respectively.

Joe also has a legal Instagram (@JoeFergusonSolicitor) which he uses to discuss family law and practice, including alternative dispute resolution, and LGBTQ+ family law.

When not working, he is a member of the Manchester Young Professionals Committee, organising network events for business professionals throughout Greater Manchester.


"I just want to say that I am eternally grateful to you for the past 6 months. It has been an emotional rollercoaster for everyone involved. If you had not convinced me to keep pushing, I doubt I would have followed through to this point. I am so glad I listened to your advice and we got it over the line."
