Wolff joins the JMW pack


Richard Wolff, Partner and Head of Corporate Recovery and Insolvency at Manchester based law firm JMW Richard Wolff Image

Solicitors LLP, has been appointed to the Management Board of the firm.

He joined JMW in January 2009 from Halliwells to set up the firm’s Corporate Recovery and Insolvency department, which has gone from strength to strength under his tenure growing from 2 to 5 lawyers over the last 2 years. More recently Richard was joined by Mark Davies from DWF as a Partner to develop further the personal insolvency offering of the department.

In September Richard was instrumental in putting together the department’s (and the firm’s) inaugural full conference event at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel in Manchester, which attracted 130 delegates and included a keynote speech from Peter Ridsdale, former chairman of Leeds United.

Last month Richard successfully chaired the first ever Insolvency Today National Conference which took place in London and attracted 150 key professionals from the UK’s insolvency industry. He is shortly due to chair Insolvency Today’s inaugural North West Conference, to be held at the Midland Hotel.

Amongst his other professional duties, Richard holds the position of vice chair of R3 (the Association of Business Recovery Professionals) in the North West.

Richard’s abilities are very well respected in the industry and his department receives work from no less than 39 different sources including many of the local, regional, national and big 4 accountancy firms (such as BDO, Begbies Traynor, FRP Advisory, KPMG, Mitchell Charlesworth and PwC).

Bill Jones, Managing Partner of JMW comments;

“Richard’s experience and knowledge within the commercial sector coupled with his all-round common sense approach will make him an excellent addition to the JMW Board.”
