JCLM is solely owned and managed by Jamie Magill.
Having graduated in Law from the University of Durham and completed the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, Jamie qualified as a Solicitor in 2006. Since qualification Jamie has specialised in Commercial Litigation with particular emphasis on Banking Disputes. Jamie has worked for a number of leading Law Firms and Commercial Banks in this sector including DAC Beachcroft, HBOS plc, Lloyds Banking Group, Eversheds, RBS and TLT.
Jamie has over 15 years’ experience as a Commercial Litigation Solicitor. Importantly, all work is carried out by Jamie personally rather than a Paralegal or a junior lawyer. Through his experience Jamie has particular interest in ensuring fair redress for individual consumers and small businesses who have suffered at the hands of others.
Away from work, Jamie enjoys spending time with his family and young children. His interests are rooted in sport, music and literature: a self-confessed super fan of Manchester United, test cricket, The Beatles (John and George only), late 80s Indie pop (Stone Roses and Pixies) Truman Capote, George Orwell, Francoise Sagan, TS Eliot and Dylan Thomas among others. Jamie has also been known to wield the willow from time to time, dabble in a bit of 5-a- side now and then and write the odd novel and anthology of poetry.
Jamie Magill is pleased to announce, following the success of “Inglory Inglory Man United”, that he has agreed terms with Pitch Publishing to write a further book entitled: “It’s Raining Bats and Pads- a story of Lancashire County Cricket Club 1989-1996”.
This looks at a very successful period in Lancashire’s history: trophies galore with the likes of Mike Atherton, Neil Fairbrother, Warren Hegg and Wasim Akram thrilling crowds at Old Trafford, Lords and beyond. And if you couldn’t always travel to Canterbury or Colwyn Bay (there are only so many times you can miss double history with Mr Rawlinson), most games were on the BBC anyway with dear old Richie Benaud and Ray Illingworth- before Sky dominated the world and turned red balls white and cricket whites purple and pink.
It fuses the delightful statistics of the day with the author’s own experience of being a fan and a follower during this golden era. Halcyon days indeed: you didn’t need the gimmicks of the IPL and super overs to enjoy the wonderful game back then.
Pies and pints: not a protein shake in sight. The book is due to be published in March 2022.
