Substantial growth for JMW’s private client team


The private client team at full service law firm JMW Solicitors LLP is enjoying considerable success, having achieved Revenue of over £1.5 million during 2013 and expanded the team significantly. This is more than three times the Revenue of 2011.

The department, led by Partner Andrew Garvie, has now recruited 6 additional lawyers to cover the ever expanding workload, taking the team to 32 a growth of 17 team members since January 2013.

The residential conveyancing team has seen an increase in activity in the housing market and have taken on two specialist Conveyancing Assistants, Amanda Priest and Sarah Hill as well as Lindsey Robinson as a Solicitor to cope with the additional workload. A further solicitor is to arrive in May. The team is well regarded in the North West acting for the majority of City Centre estate agents and a large number of financial advisers.
The team has seen an unprecedented rise in instructions especially through the JMW website, returning clients, recommendations from past clients and staff recommendations. Further new work has been generated from excellent relationships with many local estate agents as well as national company Move with Us, Seddons Homes and Pugh & Co auctioneers.

The Trust Tax and Probate Team (also part of Private client) has also increased its’ Revenue by 30%. The Court of Protection team has recruited an additional Solicitor Ben Tyer from Linder Myers and a further solicitor will join in May.

This has led to more than 2300 clients instructing the department in the first 10 months of the year as against 1500 in the same period last year, an increase of 53%.

Head of Private Client at JMW Andrew Garvie said:

“We are delighted to welcome Amanda, Lindsey and Sarah to our team as they will help further strengthen JMW’s reputation in residential conveyancing. We are seeing another increase in activity with overall instructions up considerably compared to this time last year. It has been a very exciting year for the whole of the private client team with 10 new recruits and billings up substantially. With some further new recruits due to start in next 2 months, it is going to be another exciting year for the team.”
