Jamie Barr, Owner of Wahu
“Wahu is the first of its kind in Manchester and the whole team is extremely grateful to Thomas and the commercial property team at JMW for helping to bring the concept into a reality.”
John Odell, MD Berrycroft Care
"Thomas and the team at JMW understand our goals and their expertise has played a pivotal role in allowing us to complete these landmark deals for our business.”
Mark Rodgers, Managing Director, Quorum Developments Limited
“I have dealt with JMW’s commercial property team for a number of years now on a wide range of transactions of varying complexities. I have always found the team to be thoroughly professional with an entrepreneurial approach to solving legal issues. Their advice is always robust and they react quickly when required”
“We have been very happy with the way Thomas and his team have adapted to our requirements and helped us to complete 12 complex property deals in the last 14 months with more in the pipeline as well. He is proactive and grasps the commerciality’s of a deal and we have been impressed by the level of service and the fact he is available to provide prompt advice be it in or out of standard office hours in a friendly and easy to digest manner. Keep up the good work!”
Joe McGiness, Braidwater
“Regardless of the complexity of challenges that we have come up against, we know that we can rely on guidance from JMW to resolve them. This gives us the confidence to undertake any project.”
Will Lewis, OBI Property
My team at OBI Property have worked with Thomas on a number of investment and leasing transactions. We have formed a great partnership and his pro-active and commercial approach is a massive help to our team delivering important transactions throughout the city centre.
In addition, Thomas has worked with some of my younger team members who have been working towards becoming RICS qualified – it has been so refreshing that even at partner level he has continued to take time to explain and develop these team members by explaining the legal process. You get so much more from Thomas compared to your typical property lawyer and we will continue to always work closely with him and JMW.
Richard Shackleton, Castlemead Care
Having obtained planning approval, the site was sold on for the construction of a 90 bed care home, construction of 24 homes and for an extension of the car park at the adjoining medical centre. This is the third deal that Thomas has been involved with in relation to Coverage Care. As a charity, VAT is an issue for them on elected land and Thomas drafted a ‘Golden Brick’ structure ensuring that such projects are viable for all parties.”
David Robinson, Chairman, Richer Sounds
“A small and friendly team that provides big-firm service. They have a partner-led approach and I always deal with the same key individuals. The lawyers have built strong relationships with us and they know our business and its requirements. This means that they can always offer realistic and practical advice.”
Andrew Gardner, Finance Director, Brookhouse Group
“Real people doing real work and making a real difference - what a refreshing change it is to be supported by pro-active lawyers from the start to the end of a transaction. I would not hesitate to recommend them to both small and large clients alike”
Mike Hampson, Managing Director, Nook & Key
“We worked on a development acquisition with Andrew Stone and the team at JMW. They steered us through a number of complex legal issues, which could have caused problems on disposal, always looking for practical solutions”.
James Fearn, Bounce Central
"The team at JMW offer good advice and are easy to deal with. They are responsive, competitive and have a willingness to go the extra mile for their clients. They have been excellent in terms of expertise, knowledge and commercial acumen and provide their legal advice in a friendly, professional manner."
Guy Illingworth, Managing Director, Northpoint Developments LTD
“The commercial property team at JMW provides big-firm service in an approachable and personable manner. I have established strong and enduring relationships with Stephen Goodman and Paul Burton, both of whom provide first-class commercial advice and technical expertise on the most complex of matters. I would not hesitate to recommend them”
Teresa Lawlor Blueoak Estates Limited
"Working with Katie Powell is an absolute pleasure. Professional, efficient and always willing to go the extra mile, Katie consistently provides an excellent level of service whilst maintaining a friendly and personable demeanour.
Despite having worked in this industry for many years and meeting many solicitors/conveyancers along the way, Katie stands out from the crowd due to her excellent professional and personal skills. Overall, I would highly recommend Katie and her team for a bespoke and expert service".
Justin Liew, General Manager, Gong Cha England Ltd
"JMW Solicitors have been engaged by Gong Cha England Ltd to advise us on all matters legal - from leasing to corporate and everything in between. As a retail business, having JMW look after us in the background provides us with the confidence that our legal matters are well attended to so we can focus on what we do best - serving our customers."
Neal Hunter, Director, Great George Street Developments Limited
We first engaged JMW on a complex matter involving a mixed use development as we were dissatisfied with the service we were receiving from our then-current solicitor. JMW came on board and got to grips with everything really quickly. Their expertise and knowledge provided great comfort and efficiency in completing the deal.
Ruth McCarthy is more than our legal representative, she is a considered a key member of our team, simply put we couldn’t work without Ruth or the wider JMW team! The team fully understand our requirements and always act in the best interests of our company. They are an essential part of our team and arguably the most important team member from our external consultants.
We wouldn’t want to use anyone else to represent us legally. They are extremely efficient and competent, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ruth and JMW to any of my contacts, and I have full confidence in Ruth and the team!
Michael Thompson FNAEA, Land and New Homes Director, Gascoigne Halman
I wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you for all your efforts on this project. We had not had dealings before, but I have lots to do with JMW and really respect the Firm. After this transaction, I really respect you. You came over with a very calm and controlled manner from the start and this carried through all the way along the journey.
This was a great team effort, and I am only glad that you were on our side.
