JMW Solicitors LLP are an award-winning, full service law firm providing legal services and advice to both businesses and individuals with offices in Manchester, Liverpool and London.

It prides itself on talent-spotting, with a key part of its recruitment strategy rejecting old models of fitting new staff into a mould, instead investing in their particular skills and building a team around them. This approach, which creates a more dynamic, entrepreneurial culture, is behind its evolution into one of the fastest growing law firms in the country.

All new starters attend an induction on day one which introduces them to the firm, the systems and also their "buddy" to help them integrate with their team/department and the firm as quickly and smoothly as possible. "Buddies" are given a budget to take the new member of staff our for coffee and cake away from the office.

Departments have maintain team interaction by using a series of remote team meetings, face to face where possible as well as creating team WhatsApp and other informal group chats. In September 2021 every team was given a budget for a team night out to help encourage people to reconnect socially.
