Our solicitors in Manchester
Welcome to Clarke Willmott, Manchester
We’ve been in Manchester since 2010 and our team of experts can support you with all the high quality legal advice your business or brand needs, at all stages of its lifetime.
We are a boutique team with a high ratio of partners to other legal professionals. This means our clients really do get to work closely with our top team of experts, many of whom are ranked in the Legal 500 and Chambers UK legal directories. Our expertise means our clients see us as both lawyers and business advisors.
Some people think of us as the ‘new kids on the block’, but we don’t mind. Our lawyers are some of the most highly regarded advisors in the region and as part of a national law firm, we have strong foundations and great scope. If your legal requirements fall outside of our areas of specialism, we will always know somebody who will be able to help.
