Joelson Wilson LLP

Joelson Wilson is a proactive business orientated law firm based in the heart of London’s West End for more than 50 years.

Joelson Wilson

We focus on providing commercial legal services to entrepreneurs, small and medium sized enterprises and larger listed companies both in the UK and internationally.

We provide first class, partner-led legal services and we have personable, proactive and highly motivated lawyers who consistently deliver commercial and tailored solutions for all of our clients.

We ensure that we know what makes our clients’ businesses tick so that we can provide bespoke business solutions and clear and consistent legal advice.  Our ambition is to be seen by our client as a true business partner adding value at all times.  In order to achieve this we encourage our clients to include us in all aspects of their strategic planning.  Our size helps us to achieve this.  Clients know with whom they are dealing from day one and appreciate not being passed from one lawyer to the next.   We are able to provide a truly personal service and consistency of advice by working closely with each other and our clients.

Achieving the partnering status we seek with all our clients requires a firm foundation of mutual trust especially for clients who are doing business in the UK for the first time.   We are therefore delighted to have been awarded the accolade of “The UK’s most trusted small law firm of the year”.
