Miscellaneous Information



Firm Trained With

McMillan Williams


I am the Chief Executive Officer of McMillan Williams Solicitors Limited (MWSL), a Private Equity backed consumer-services law firm, with office locations in London and across the South of England.

My vision is to build a local, solicitor-led legal services company with long-term commercial viability. To accomplish, In February 2015, McMillan Williams Solicitors (the Partnership) executed an Alternative Business Structure (ABS) License, incorporating as MWSL, and took on growth capital Finance from the Business Growth Fund (BGF).  BGF provide growth capital and managerial expertise to select fast growing British businesses from a £2.5bn fund backed by Britain’s high street lenders.

I am making quality legal services (including legally aided services) available in more areas of law, in more offices, on more high streets and accessible in more ways, including automated online services, than any other single legal business in the country. MWSL has identified 100 potential office locations in a growth plan that will culminate with an IPO.

I am an expert litigator with a famous career in high-value Clinical Negligence cases.

I am also a serial entrepreneur, having successfully launched and run Property Management, Property Investment and Home Information Pack (HIPs) companies in addition to McMillan Williams.
