• Our solicitors in Manchester

Welcome to Clarke Willmott, Manchester

We are a leading UK law firm offering a full legal service to businesses and private individuals.

We pride ourselves on our straight talking approach, expertise and consistently excellent service.

In 2018 following continued success and growth in Manchester we moved to new offices in the City Centre which reinforces the firm’s commitment to the City of Manchester which is fast becoming a leading centre outside London for professional services.

We are committed, determined and enthusiastic people who enjoy working together to deliver pragmatic, strategic and timely legal advice for our clients. Many of our partners are listed as ‘Recommended Lawyer’ or ‘Leading Individual’ in their field in the Legal 500, a directory that provides comprehensive worldwide coverage on recommended law firms, lawyers, attorneys, advocates, solicitors and barristers.

Clarke Willmott LLP has an ‘extremely knowledgeable and efficient team that is commercially and legally smart and tactically astute’. Legal 500 2019

Clients say: “The team is very good. They are fast, efficient and knowledgeable, as well as providing a value-for-money service.” Chambers 2019

Please get in touch to discuss how our expert solicitors can help you or your business in whatever challenge you may be facing. We would be delighted to talk to you about your business, your ambitions, what matters to you, and how we can help you to succeed.

Our work in the community

We care about how we do business and the wider community that surrounds us, our clients and our families.

Local Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) leadership teams across our seven national offices oversee our firm wide efforts in the local community. We are keen to encourage all of our employees to think about how they might use the skills they develop in their professional careers to give back to their local community and this is reflected in our strategy.

Currently our Manchester office charity is St Ann’s Hospice. We are working hard with St Ann’s not only to raise funds but to supply volunteers for projects run by St Ann’s. At Christmas time we provided volunteers to assist with At Ann’s Christmas shop. In March 2019 our expert private client lawyers will be writing wills for St Ann’s in their Will Week.
