JWP reaches 20-year milestone with 20 solicitors

JWP Solicitors is celebrating the milestone of 20 years in business with the appointment of two new recruits.

Tom Grice joined the JWP team this month as head of private client. Since qualifying in 2016, he has specialised in both wills and probate and conveyancing, and has led his own teams in Wakefield. He joins the firm from Newtons Solicitors.

June Kelly has taken up a position in the growing care team at JWP. She joins with a wealth of experience in the area. Since qualifying in 1994, she became a child panel member in 1998, and was a member of the Law Society’s mental health panel for 14 years. 

John Wood, founding partner at JWP, said: “This year is a milestone for us in many ways. We reached 20 years in business on 1 July, and to cap it off, we’ve taken on two experienced solicitors to boost our care and private client teams, taking us to 20 solicitors for the first time.”

“Every one of those 20 years has brought unique challenges, and this one more so than most, but our commitment to finding and retaining the best people has always stood us in good stead.”

JWP formed in 2000 at the site of a former wool stapler in Cheapside, Wakefield. Since then, the firm has continued its commitment to the Yorkshire region with three additional sites in Pontefract, Leeds and Batley.
