JWK Solicitors, Part of Simpson Millar
Simpson Millar’s acquisition of JWK Solicitors adds 50 staff and offices in Lancaster, Morecambe and Southport.
JWK had a strong local reputation in Wills and Trusts, Probate, Personal Injury and Medical Negligence; a regional reputation for Commercial and Corporate work and a large residential Conveyancing team.
The firm also has niche areas in aviation law, where Ian Gee is listed in the Legal 500, and also in Employment Law where we have run notable Protective Award Claims against BHS and Monarch.
JWK Solicitors are the merged law firms of Jobling & Knape, established in 1934, and Whiteside and Knowles, established in 1888. The partners of Jobling & Knape were delighted to merge in 2012 with the well-known firm of Whiteside and Knowles, a practice even older than Jobling & Knape and with whom Jobling & Knape has enjoyed a long and friendly relationship.
