The team at JMW Solicitors LLP  is ‘superb and very strong’. The ‘exemplary’ Tasnim Khalid heads the department; ‘her technical expertise is second to none and her personable nature is endearing’. Elaine Roche is ‘always calm, empathetic and extremely good at explaining clearly and in plain English what might otherwise be very complicated and full of legalese’. Highlights included acting as executors of an estate which was worth £7.8m and was left entirely to charity. The funds in the estate had come from several very valuable paintings that had been restituted to the family after they had been taken by the Nazis. The administration of the estate has now been completed and the funds have been paid out to various faith-based charities in the North West and overseas. Paul Gotch  is ‘very experienced’ at protecting clients who have been awarded compensation for a personal injury or clinical negligence claim through the use of a personal injury trust.
