JMW Solicitors advises high net worth individuals and families on complex private client matters, including those involving family investment companies, agricultural businesses and disputed wills and trusts.

"The breadth and knowledge of the team at JMW is one of the best in Manchester," says one source, who adds that it is "definitely our go-to law firm." Another reports that it is "a very strong firm backed up by a highly specialised litigation team and the resources to assist wherever necessary."

Alison Parry leads the will and trust disputes practice at the firm. A source reports that "Alison Parry dealt empathetically and decisively with a difficult trial. There were some challenging tactical decisions to make, which she took the client through with care and considerable skill." Another says that "Alison is highly experienced and committed to getting the best outcome as quickly as possible for her clients. She is incredibly responsive and was always available to answer any questions that arose."
