What Others Say
The commercial litigation and dispute resolution team at JMW has been acknowledged by authorities in the law industry due to the quality of the service it offers. Take a look at what others have said about us:
Legal 500: Dispute Resolution
JMW Solicitors LLP's sweet spot lies in acting for listed and unlisted plcs, SMEs and high-net-worth individuals in a range of commercial disputes; it also has an impressive reputation in sports sector disputes, with practice head Marc Yaffe a key name for high-profile individuals and companies in this space. The team is increasingly recognised for acting for claimants in data protection group actions. Other areas of expertise include corporate disputes (which are a focus for Steve Morris and Michael Kennedy), professional negligence and contentious construction matters, which are among Mark Jones' specialisms, and public law and judicial review proceedings, for which Oliver Wright is a name to note. The 'commercially astute' Graham Small is highlighted for his breadth of commercial, insolvency and fraud disputes experience, while Claire Brown's expertise includes contractual and professional negligence issues.
JMW Solicitors LLP’s recently launched London team specialises in complex high-value disputes. Joining from Carter-Ruck in August 2020, department head Matthew Wescott is a highly regarded commercial and insurance litigation expert.
