Ambitious Belfast and Newry legal firm to employ 55 staff by end-2016
A thriving Belfast and Newry-based legal company is set to add 10 new staff to its offices in 2016 as part of an ambitious £1m three-year business development plan.
JMK Solicitors, Northern Ireland’s top legal advisors in assisting accident victims who have been injured through no-fault of their own, will expand initially its team from 45 to 55 by the year-end.
The committed funds will enable the company to capitalise on its prolonged experience in its specialist areas and hire new talent, while investing in career development, IT and marketing.
In 2015, the company handled a record 1,290 separate personal injury cases from clients based right across Northern Ireland, the largest volume handled by a legal firm that year.
The confident growth news and the additional talent being added to JMK’s two offices is backed up by a new marketing campaign which will be rolled out next month.
Maurece Hutchinson, Managing Director, JMK Solicitors, said:
“The work we have completed and the clients we represent speak for themselves in clearly illustrating the firm’s ability and quality of service and it is a testament to our dedication to ensure that every client fully and fairly recovers their losses with the least possible stress.”
Established in 2003, the company has already helped tens of thousands of clients recover more than £100 million in compensation across multiple cases including personal injuries claims, road traffic accidents and medical incidents, accidents at work and injuries abroad.
“JMK Solicitors is establishing itself as one of the most modern, consumer-focused and progressive legal advisors in Northern Ireland, delivering outstanding legal services to meet a variety of consumer needs,” Maurece said.
Jonathan McKeown, Chair, JMK Solicitors, said:
“Our investment in new talent is central to a strategy that places experience and commitment at the heart of our plans for growth. Our specialist knowledge in these areas, years of working successfully for those in need of advice after an accident or injury has led to an increasing demand for our services and we are delighted to be able to make this significant investment in the local economy.
As part of its expansion plans, JMK Solicitors will be unveiling a suite of new products and services, the first of which will be unveiled next month.
