Boost for clinical negligence team at JMW with two appointments


The clinical negligence department at Manchester law firm JMW Solicitors has boosted its team further with the appointment of two new case workers.

Katie Nolan has taken up the role of solicitor and Lois Rowland joins as a nurse paralegal, due to the continued growth of the department.

They will be tasked with helping to manage the growing list of clients seeking legal support from JMW, after suffering injury as a result of medical negligence.

Katie, who joins from Stephensons Solicitors, qualified as a solicitor in September 2011. While training, she gained extensive experience of clinical negligence matters, including handling cases of misdiagnosis and high-value birth trauma caused by medical errors.

Katie commented: “It’s a really exciting time for JMW, which has a growing presence nationally, so I’m delighted to become a part of a successful and close knit team.”

Lois is a qualified midwife and has worked at St Mary’s Hospital, Manchester, and the Royal Blackburn Hospital. She brings a wealth of experience to the role of nurse paralegal at JMW and will be one of the first points of contact for people looking for advice and guidance on clinical negligence matters.

Lois commented: “I’m really looking forward to playing a part in helping the victims of medical negligence find answers, and justice for the injuries they have suffered.”

Eddie Jones, head of the clinical negligence department at JMW Solicitors, added: “The department has a solid reputation as one of the leading clinical negligence teams in the North West, and our case load is growing as a result.

“The appointment of Katie and Lois will enable us meet the demand for our services, as well as support the ongoing growth of the department, and I am delighted to welcome them to the team.”
