Evan brings with him an exceptional combination of experience, skill and commitment, not to mention a client following, and will be a significant asset to the Business Crime and Regulation team at JMW.”

On his new appointment, Evan Wright, a partner at JMW said:

“I am pleased to be re-joining a forward thinking and commercially focused firm like JMW. I am looking forward to working closely with Peter to develop the department further and attract more high profile fraud and asset recovery work and help our clients attain their business and legal needs.”
