Grantham-based JMP Solicitors has been ranked as a leading firm for personal injury and clinical negligence services in the prestigious Legal 500 listing, with senior associate solicitor and head of clinical negligence, Christine Bowerman, being named as a ‘Rising Star’.
Published annually, the Legal 500 UK is an internationally recognised ranking list, highlighting law firms that demonstrate strong technical ability and in-depth capability in multi disciplinaries of law.
JMP Solicitors has represented thousands of clients in the East Midlands and beyond since its inception in 2001, and in 2020 it was listed in the Legal 500 top firms for its specialisms in personal injury and clinical negligence.
Ranked as a Rising Star in the 2020 listing, Christine Bowerman has been with JMP Solicitors for 17 years and has worked on many high-value and complex personal injury claims, including serious injuries and clinical negligence cases involving the misdiagnosis of cancer and negligent dental treatment.
Notably back in 2019, she acted on a high-profile clinical negligence case – representing a relative of the original NHS founder, called Roderick Bevan, at an inquest concerning the negligent misdiagnosis of a tumour which could have prevented his passing.
The Legal 500 listing acknowledged Christine for achieving ‘very good results’.
Ian Howard, director at JMP Solicitors said: “We are incredibly proud to have retained a spot in the Legal 500 list, having been recognised since 2015 as a leading firm. To be included in the ranking for five years running is a testament to our reputation of providing a quality professional service.
“Congratulations to Christine for achieving Rising Star status and to the JMP Solicitors team who should be very proud of this achievement.”
Christine Bowerman, said: “It is an honour to have been named as a Rising Star by the Legal 500, a widely recognised achievement in the law community. Throughout my career, I have always worked to get the best outcome for my clients, no matter how complex the case, so it is touching to be named individually as providing an outstanding service.
“This award will strengthen our reputation in the East Midlands and beyond and it is a pleasure to carry such an accreditation of this stature.”
