New Catastrophic Injury Practice for JMW


Full service law firm JMW Solicitors LLP has announced that they have purchased the catastrophic injury practice of Liverpool based law firm Cassell Moore.

Paul Breen, who was Head of the Catastrophic Injury Team at Cassell Moore joins JMW as Head of Catastrophic Injury in the Personal Injury team along with Solicitor Natalie Clarke. Many of the clients of Paul and Natalie have transferred to JMW.

Paul has over 30 years’ experience in dealing with large and complex personal injury cases, has extensive expertise in fatal accident claims and is a leading expert in motorcycle accident claims. 

Paul brings with him to JMW two major referrers of work. Principal Insurance is one of the UK’s fastest growing specialist motor insurance brokers.  The business specialises in motor bike, van and specialist car insurance, and is based in Sale. Paul also receives work referrals from The Brain Charity based in Liverpool. They offer emotional support, practical help and social activities to anyone with a neurological condition and their friends, families and carers.  This includes working with people who have experienced head and brain injuries. Paul, Natalie and the personal injury team at JMW will work closely with both Principal Insurance and The Brain Charity going forward.

Principal’s CEO, Dave Bowcock, commented: 

“We have known Paul for many years are confident that our clients are in the hands of one of the most knowledgeable and experienced practitioners in the country. We look forward to a long relationship with him at JMW.”

Paul previously worked with JMW’s Senior Partner Joy Kingsley at Pannone and commenting on Paul’s move to JMW Joy said:

“We are delighted to welcome Paul Breen and Natalie Clarke to the Personal Injury team at JMW. Having worked with Paul at Pannone I know that he brings with him a wealth of experience in dealing with multi-track and fatal accident personal injury claims. They and the work referral sources they bring with them, Principal Insurance and The Brain Charity, are a welcome addition to our excellent Personal Injury department.”

Speaking about his appointment at JMW, Paul Breen commented:

"I am very pleased to be joining JMW as Head of Catastrophic Injury along with Natalie. The Personal Injury team at JMW have an excellent reputation and this was a huge attraction for me. In the type of cases I deal with it is important to work at a firm that is compassionate and caring, which can offer the best possible service to my clients at a difficult period in their lives.”
