The People behind KW Law LLP
Julian Watson lives in Warwick with his family. Julian was educated at King Edward's School in Edgbaston, Birmingham, and qualified as a solicitor in 1997. After spells at Hammonds (now Squire Patton Boggs) and Shakespeares LLP in Birmingham, Julian set up his own practice in March 2008.
Throughout his career Julian has always specialised in corporate and personal insolvency whilst also practising company commercial law and commercial litigation. Julian has a diverse client base of insolvency practitioners, corporate clients and individuals, and has acted in the past on notable cases such as the receiverships of Claims Direct and Gillman & Soame.
On 1 December 2016 Julian moved offices to Leamington Spa where he practices as a sole practitioner. Julian's practice continues to grow by building on his large firm expertise and by providing excellent service by focusing on his areas of specialism. Julian is noted for his great results, commerciality and no nonsense approach.
Julian is a solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales. He commenced his training contract in 1995, and qualified in 1997. Julian's basis of charging is normally on a time spent basis; fixed fee retainers can normally be offered for transactional work only. Julian's hourly rate is £250 - £315 per hour plus VAT dependent upon the type and nature of the instruction. Most clients pay the lower rate of £250 per hour; higher rates are charged for specialist cases such as fraud and high value litigation, and diffcult matters such as cross border litigation, injunctions and insolvency matters.
Julian believes that the business of law is about people first and foremost, and that helping others should be a priority. Julian is a regular donator to the Warwick District Food Bank, the Northampton and Warwickshire Air Ambulance, the Injured Jockies Fund and the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.
