Job Title: Solicitor
Liz obtained a law degree and masters from the University of Leeds before completing her Legal Practice Course at Nottingham Law School. A proportion of her training contract involved working with the Health & Safety Executive as their agent for prosecutions which is how her profound interest in workplace safety really came about. She qualified as a solicitor in 2009 and joined JMW in March 2015 in a supervisory role. She currently deals with the whole range of employers liability claims up to a high level of complexity in terms of both the technical liability issues and nature of injuries sustained. She also has vast experience in all public and product liability cases as well as criminal injury compensation claims.
Outside of work, Liz is an experienced skydiver with over 1,100 jumps. She is a qualified formation skydiving coach and has previously been part of her local club’s camera flying team. Liz has more recently got back into horses and owns a young Irish sports horse she has recently started to compete.
Why did you join JMW?
I was aware of the firm’s exceptional reputation and renowned focus on client care, which is extremely important to me. The firm has also seen recent, rapid expansion and I feel that their values and approach to their work are the recipe for their success. I am certainly proud to be part of the team here.
Who would you...
Share a pint with:
My favourite series is The Office so I’d love to meet up with Ricky Gervais in character as David Brent (bonus if he brought his guitar!).
Have cook for you:
I’d give any half-decent chef the honour as my cooking skills have much to be desired! But I’d say Michel Roux Jr as he’s really talented and doesn’t have the ego that a lot of professional chefs have.

My husband with the red wine flowing!
