Key members of the team


Having supported us through the buy-out process in 2014 and remained our go to lawyers since, EMW were the obvious choice to support the Springboard shareholders through the exit process. We certainly made the right choice. EMW are responsive, collaborative and pragmatic, always achieving the right balance between representing our best interests and delivering on our wish for the transaction to proceed to close as quickly as possible. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the outcome and the quality of service that EMW provided.

Stephen Booth, Springboard

I wholeheartedly recommend EMW to other business owners looking for first class legal advice.

Over the last few years EMW has grown in both size and into new areas. What has remained constant is the great culture and core values of the business. The Firm continues to encourage and support individual development. If you have the ambition to succeed then we will give you the support and tools to make it happen.

Ian Mabbutt, Principal

Brampton Valley Homes Ltd have worked alongside EMW since our incorporation in 2016. We have always worked closely with Josh Clark who acts on our behalf in many different functions from assisting in land acquisition all the way through to handing over to our management company and anything in between. The working relationship with EMW formed over many developments and currently Josh is assisting us at Lavendon, Harlington and our recent land purchase at Harrold.  Proactive in his approach, we always feel supported and nothing is too much trouble. The advice we receive is always clear and has been correct and if we ever hit obstacles Josh is helpful in navigating these on our behalf. It is also nice to be able to pick up the phone and have conversations when needed as well as prompt responses to emails. Brampton Valley Homes Ltd would have no hesitation in recommending EMW to anyone who asks and look forward to continuing our working relationship with Josh and his EMW colleagues for many years to come.
