Mayflower sets sail for business success on Westside

A Birmingham firm of solicitors born at the height of the recession has created its own success story within Westside BID, culminating in being nominated for a national award.

Mayflower Solicitors, based in The Wharf, Bridge Street, began its business journey in 2008 in the middle of the UK recession.

It started as a small team in the heart of Birmingham, and then successfully overcame the challenge of finding its feet in the commercial law market alongside larger, more established firms.

This resulted in Mayflower being shortlisted for the Best Landlord Legal Services Provider of the Year award 2019 at The National Landlord Investment Show held in November.

Director-Jimmy Ogunshakin, originally from London but his career growing in the Midlands, always dreamt of having his own firm, having worked in some of the leading national and international law firms.

He said: “The opening of Mayflower provided an opportunity for budding solicitors to be given the opportunity to work at a new firm based in Birmingham.

“We have often organically grown our own solicitors and will continue to do so, working with law students and graduates from local universities.”

He added: “It was a slow process which involved building the brand over a course of a few years.

“We strive to differentiate ourselves from other firms by building strong working relationships with our clients and ensuring they are satisfied with the service provided by our solicitors.

“We now have an extremely good and continuously developing client base, and last year our clients included two diplomatic missions working internationally.

“Mayflower has been a real success, demonstrated by us being nominated for an award at the annual National Landlord Investment Show, which recognised us for ‘excellence’.”

Mayflower has recently been advising BID members on how to make compensation claims following last September’s burst water main.
