New Prestige Office Space for JMW’s Real Estate Team


The Real Estate Team of full service law firm JMW Solicitors LLP’s has agreed terms on a lease of 14,000 square feet of new office accommodation at 3 Hardman Street, Spinningfields, due to the expansion of the team and the firm. This is in addition to the firm’s existing office space at 1 Byrom Place.

JMW Real Estate, comprising of Residential, Financial and Commercial Property, has signed a 9 year lease at 3 Hardman Street, which is one of the premiere buildings in Spinningfields. The new office space on the 4th floor will house 120 Partners, fee earners and staff with room for expansion. Since the start of the new financial year in May 2017 the Real Estate team has grown by 70 people which was the catalyst for the move. Commercial and Financial Real Estate number 59 people and Residential 61.

JMW was advised on the lease by Andrew Timms of Edwards & Co and the landlord, Hardman Trustee No 1 and No 2 Limited, was represented by Savills.

The fit out of the new office space is being undertaken by ADT Workplace working with Real Estate Commercial Partner Thomas Pearson. The Real Estate team will move to the new office accommodation by the end of 2017.

Commenting on the expansion of JMW Real Estate, Joy Kingsley, Senior Partner at JMW said:
“Over the last 5 years our Real Estate team, consisting of our Commercial, Residential and Finance teams, has increased by 200%. As a firm we have grown by 74% in the last 5 years so needed additional office space close to our existing location at 1 Byrom Place, Spinningfields. It made sense to house our Real Estate team together on one floor, allowing them to work together for clients utilising both our Commercial and Residential services.

JMW Real Estate is instructed by Brookhouse Group, Dransfield Properties, Whitecroft, Blueoak, NatWest,
Lowry Capital Limited, Aldermore Bank plc, Precise Mortgages and Savills.  It has been a period of immense growth for our Real Estate team and as a firm we are delighted to invest in this new office space for them.”

Paul Walker, Managing Partner at JMW commented:

“We are pleased to have acquired new office space for the JMW Real Estate at 3 Hardman Street in Spinningfields. The new office space illustrates our continued growth at JMW and we are pleased to have invested in the future of our growing Real Estate team. This move means there is further room for expansion for all our other departments who remain at our office at 1 Byrom place in Spinningfields. We are looking forward to seeing the new office space once the fit out has taken place at 3 Hardman Street.”
