Ian Jones 

Director and Principal Solicitor 

Ian is the founder of Spencer Shaw Solicitors. He qualified as a solicitor in 1991 having studied at the Chelmer Institute and the Chester College of Law. Ian had experience as a Partner and Head of Employment Law and Litigation with larger firms before setting up Spencer Shaw in 2007. 
He set up Spencer Shaw as he felt most solicitors at the time weren’t communicating in a way that suited the client. He wanted to make the process simple for clients, offering swift service and clear advice. Now that the practice has grown, Ian has oversight of all of our cases, offering support to our Consultant and Associate Solicitors. He also takes the lead on some complex cases. 
Ian has experience in all aspects of employment law and has a particular interest in unfair dismissal cases, disputes involving alleged breaches of restrictive covenants and negotiating settlements. Ian appears regularly in the Employment Tribunal. His experience includes taking claims on appeal to the Employment Appeal Tribunal, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court. 
Outside of work, Ian is a keen golfer, cyclist and rock climber.  
Ian has been an excellent advisor, he understood my situation, was so clear with his responses and what options were available to me with various consequences. I felt very reassured by his professionalism, honesty and clarity and this has helped reduce my anxiety and stress through a very difficult period. I'm very grateful and would absolutely recommend Spencer Shaw Solicitors if anyone is in an unfortunate position to need expert help and support. 
I definitely recommend Spencer Shaw Solicitors Limited and their team of legal experts. Ian Jones took the time to explain my complicated case in plain English and helped me to come to an agreeable outcome and move on to new adventures. 
Ian and the whole team have been essential in well managing my case. From the first time I met he has been empathic, deeply knowledgeable and competent. He explained all the details in a plain way what the clauses meant and made me trust my case was in the best possible hands. Definitely from now on I will always connect with Spencer Shaw Solicitors for any legal support. 
Ian has been absolutely fabulous regarding my case, he has been clear, concise and made a very stressful situation much more bearable, I cant recommend Ian Jones and his team enough, a consummate professional who made the whole matter much less stressful, thank you.
