Partner Manchester Commercial Litigation

Louise joined JMW in 2006 and is a Partner Professional Support Lawyer (PSL) working with the Commercial Litigation team. 

Prior to becoming a PSL at the start of 2020, Louise was a Senior Associate Solicitor in JMW’s Commercial Litigation team (for 12 years) advising clients both nationally and internationally on a range of commercial disputes, with a particular focus on contractual claims, professional negligence, property related disputes and cohabitation disputes. 

Louise enjoyed handling a wide range of matters for corporate and individual clients, and thrived dealing with complex litigation. It is in the spirit of her support for alternative dispute resolution that Louise explored settlement of clients’ cases at the earliest and most commercially viable opportunity. She has a strong record for resolving cases at mediation, achieving the best possible outcome for her clients.

Louise is an experienced practitioner bringing significant practical and technical knowledge to her Professional Support Lawyer role. Her role involves delivering and coordinating training courses for lawyers in the commercial litigation team, drafting and editing client publications and legal updates and producing regular bulletin updates and vlogs to the team on legal developments, know-how, precedents and other resources to assist the team’s efficiency and expertise. Louise also assists in delivering inductions for new trainee solicitors and paralegals to the team and providing support to all new starters. In addition, Louise coordinates the team’s responses to invitations by Judicial groups to provide feedback or proposals in respect of planned changes to procedural rules, guidelines or legislation.
