Mr Wayne Williams - what can one say? He came to us highly recommended by a leading firm of Cardiff accountants who greatly benefited from his business management advice and this is exactly what we desperately wanted - to put together a proper management structure at the time when the legal market had just walked off the edge of a cliff. Wayne's guidance, advice and support has been paramount and incalculably invaluable in achieving this for our business - and latterly in addition his phenomenal support and guidance in enabling this firm to achieve Lexcel accreditation. Hopefully he will continue to work with as for many years to come and continue to provide his wise counsel and guidance. Highly recommended!! Simon Morgan, Director, Thomas Simon Solicitors
- COFA Course - I would like to say that attending the COFA course put “meat on the bones” for me. James Lynch, Partner, Martyn Prowel Solicitors
- In a year when David Prosser & Co was ambitiously seeking to change the status of the practice to a limited company, gain CQS accreditation and change our bankers, deciding to work towards Lexcel certification may have seemed a step too far! CPM21 helped us with the process and Wayne was able to successfully steer us towards accreditation at our first attempt with the highest possible "score". A big thanks to Wayne and his staff for helping us formalise our practice management structure with Lexcel accreditation.
Simon Thomas Director David Prosser & Co Solicitors
- I am pleased that my firm has become one of the very first to obtain a recommendation for Lexcel Certification against the new version 4 of the scheme. This would not have been possible without the assistance of Paul Jones who, since his appointment in June 2007 has worked tirelessly with my team to prepare for the 2 day assessment. The auditor identified a maximum of 8 areas of good practice, a first for him! We had no non compliance issues at all. This would not have been possible without Paul’s expertise, knowledge and dedication to preparing for the audit in a professional manner geared directly to the needs of my specialist practice. I very strongly recommend Paul to your firm if you are considering moving forward to reach the Lexcel Standard of Accreditation with the Law Society. Janette Hill, Senior Partner, Janette Hill & Co
- I recall receiving a 'flier' from cpm21 with the face of an angry, frustrated man, with a message along the lines that they could solve the problems responsible. I am pleased to say they are doing just that for us, at a time when rules and regulations were beginning to interfere with the smooth running of a firm which has been successfully practicing for over a century. Geraint Davies, Partner, T.R. Harris Arnold & Co
- We enjoyed the facilitation delivered by Wayne and his team at our strategic planning sessions. We found their input useful and our answers to their incisive questions very revealing. As a team who understand law firms and their personnel we would not hesitate to recommend their services."
Zep Bellavia, Managing Partner, Harding Evans LLP
- As managing partner of a high street solicitors practice I have found the involvement of Wayne Williams of CPM21 invaluable in helping us to focus on the crucial business issues and challenges facing high street firms such as mine in the current climate. I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending his services.
Hywel Davies, Partner, Martyn Prowel Solicitors
- In a very short time we have achieved a great deal and my firm is well on the way to obtaining accreditation. Indeed, I have been so impressed with Paul that I have now arranged to retain him on a permanent basis to assist with the management of my practice.
Principal & Sole Practitioner, Civil Litigation
- I would describe the services offered by Paul Jones, as efficient, and his explanations of managerial tasks as clear and concise. Paul also delivers everything he promises, and gets things done. He has proved an invaluable resource in the strategy and operations of my firm.
Sian Lewis, Partner, Gartsides Solicitors

Lynda Rhead, Partner, Gartsides Solicitors

Victoria Hains, Director, Hains & Lewis Ltd
- …we are pleased to advise that financially the practice has improved, as has general satisfaction of staff.
Equity Partner, Family & Matrimonial
- In 2007 our practice worked closely with Wayne Williams and Paul Jones of CPM21 on a "lean management” project involving one of our large departments. They exhibited a clear understanding of the objectives of the project from the outset, worked closely with our internal team and central management over several months and produced the sort of clear headed, clever, professional analysis that one expects from experienced external consultants. We value our working relationship with CPM21 and anticipate involving them again in internal projects at our firm.
Stephen Hewitt, Partner of Fisher Meredith Solicitors
