Further growth for medical negligence team at JMW Solicitors


New appointments have bolstered numbers in the medical negligence department at Manchester law firm JMW Solicitors, which continues to go from strength-to-strength.

The team has added to its ranks with the recruitment of Sophie Fox, who joins as a trainee solicitor, and Donna Bass, who joins as a paralegal.

The hires have been possible due to continued business growth and the promotion of existing staff.

Sophie and Donna join as the team celebrates 15 years since its establishment, during which time its headcount has quadrupled.

Both newcomers will be tasked with helping to manage the growing list of clients seeking legal support from JMW after suffering an injury due to medical negligence.

Sophie, who joins from local rivals Pannone, will qualify as a solicitor this year. While training she has gained extensive experience of a wide range of clinical negligence matters and as well as supporting more senior solicitors she also handles her own case load.

Sophie commented: “JMW’s medical negligence team has an excellent reputation nationally so it was an obvious target for furthering my career in the arena. I am looking forward to working with some of the most respected medical negligence lawyers in the North West.”

Donna is one of the first points of contact for patients who have been injured by medical error and helps to assess what went wrong with their care. She joins from Addleshaw Goddard where she acted as a paralegal in the employment and property team.

Donna commented: “I am looking forward to playing a part in the excellent service JMW is renowned for and helping people who have suffered avoidable injuries due to medical errors to begin to rebuild their lives.”

Eddie Jones, head of the medical negligence department at JMW Solicitors, added: “The medical negligence sector is becoming increasingly competitive yet despite this challenging landscape our business remains robust. I am delighted to welcome Sophie and Donna to the team as with their addition we stand in a very good position for further future growth.”
