Gareth qualified as a solicitor in 1991 and was a Partner at two national law firms. He was most recently a partner at George Davies, Manchester, until setting up GHW Solicitors in 2009.
Throughout his career Gareth has focussed on providing commercial services to clients with a particular focus on the legal issues that arises within sporting professions. His thorough and no nonsense attitude is appreciated by his clients and is a force to be reckoned with when involved in disputes and litigation.
Gareth’s reason for founding his own firm was his belief in good quality client service. Time and time again he saw how a client can be forced to adapt to a “procedure” that does not suit them just because it is more convenient for the firm they have instructed.
Gareth felt strongly that this is not the way to look after a client’s best interests. Surely a firm should adapt to suit the client and not the other way round? It sounds simple but it is this commitment to catering to his client’s needs and safeguarding their individual requirements that drove him to set up his own firm.
By cutting out many irrelevant overheads, a small specialist firm can provide the same level of service as a large firm, but at a reduced cost.
Gareth’s experience and reputation as a lawyer is recognised by the both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners legal directories. These are the leading guides to quality legal services in the UK.
“He is obviously hugely involved in all matters, and is a personable and down to earth lawyer. Clients say his ease of communication… sets him apart from many of his peers.”
