Partner Manchester Corporate and Commercial
Since joining JMW's corporate team in July 2018, following her relocation from London, Emma has aimed to combine her training and experience at City law firms with JMW's entrepreneurial spirit.
Emma has advised on a range of corporate transactions and investments with a focus on owner-managed businesses. This has involved work at all stages of a company’s life-cycle from advising start-ups seeking their first investment to advising SME owners on the sale of their business. As the market has seen a trend for exiting business owners moving towards an employee-ownership model, Emma has developed knowledge and expertise in working on the establishment of employee ownership trusts.
Emma has also acted for investors and buyers on a number of corporate acquisitions in a range of sectors including technology, property and recruitment. As a member JMW's sports team, she has also advised on a number of football club acquisitions (including Stockport County Football Club and Yeovil Town Football Club).
Emma graduated from University of Birmingham with a law degree in 2007 and completed the legal practice course at BPP, Manchester in 2009. She trained and qualified at K&L Gates LLP, London before moving to the London branch of Icelandic firm, Logos.
Emma interests revolve around music from exploring Manchester’s music scene to singing in a local choir.
