East Midlands law firm secures top spot in Legal 500 listing for sixth consecutive year

Grantham-based JMP Solicitors has been ranked as a leading firm for personal injury and clinical negligence services in the prestigious Legal 500 2021 listing, with senior associate solicitor and head of clinical negligence, Christine Bowerman, being named as a ‘Rising Star’ for a consecutive year.

Published annually, the Legal 500 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 2021 it was listed in the Legal 500 top firms for its specialisms in personal injury and clinical negligence for the second year.

Rankings reflect detailed analysis of law firms – with thousands of interviews conducted.

Christine Bowerman was ranked as ‘rising star’ by the Legal 500 listing in 2020 and has been recognised again for the same accolade in 2021.

Having been with JMP Solicitors for 18 years, she 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.

Christine has acted on many high-profile and notable cases over the years – including the representation of 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.

Ian Howard, director at JMP Solicitors, said: “We are incredibly proud to have retained a place in the Legal 500 list, having been recognised since 2015 as a leading firm. The Covid-19 pandemic has proved to be a testing and extremely busy time and securing this spot once again for the sixth year running is a real testament to the team’s hard work and professionalism during such a turbulent time.

“Congratulations to Christine for achieving Rising Star status once again and to the JMP Solicitors team who should be very proud of this achievement.”

Christine Bowerman said: “It is a huge honour to have been named as a Rising Star by the Legal 500 once again. 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 past year in particular has been extremely challenging for everyone so it’s wonderful to be recognised by the law community in this way.”
