What his clients say

"In 2019 we found ourselves in need of a Solicitor. JMW were recommended to us and they do not disappoint.

We were appointed Senior Associate Richard Glover and Solicitor Mehek Ubeid. They supported us every step of the way during a very stressful time. Their professionalism and care was outstanding.

We thank them for making a very unpleasant time in our lives easier and would urge anyone in need of legal advice to seek the services of JMW Solicitors."

I found that Richard Glover and Jess Stanway were quick to grasp the measure of my situation and were exceptionally professional in their original advice and then their efficient execution of the necessary process required. Their intellectual understanding of a complex matter was exceptional, their communication was clear, timely and was helpful in navigating a difficult situation. I would highly recommend Richard, Jess and their team, on a personal note, they were a pleasure to deal with.

Richard Glover has assisted me and footballer clients, including Marcos Rojo, in resolving disputes with landlords of high value residential properties. On each occasion, Richard has expertly navigated us through the process, has protected me and my footballer clients and achieved commercially successful outcomes. I have found Richard to be tenacious, client focused and very approachable. I would not hesitate to instruct Richard again on any future matters and would wholly endorse him in relation to property disputes.
