Martin O’Neill specialises in commercial contracts, intellectual property and technology law. He graduated from Glasgow University and also trained with WJM. Martin holds an LL.M. in IT Law and has been ranked as a notable practitioner in numerous editions of the Chambers Guide, including the 2018 edition. His clients range from small owner managed businesses to international listed companies across many of WJM’s key sectors.

WJM’s Managing Partner Fraser Gillies said, “Joanne and Martin have both established excellent reputations for themselves in their own fields and are the first port of call for a number of the firm’s key clients, for whom they’ve worked very hard and delivered a consistently top-notch service. WJM is growing and Joanne and Martin will play an important role in further strengthening and developing our Commercial Property and Corporate teams.
