JMK Solicitors handled more personal injury cases than any other firm in Northern Ireland for a fourth consecutive year in 2017.

The Belfast and Newry-based firm handled a record 1,420 separate cases in 2017 according to government figures, up by 9 per cent on the previous year and almost twice as many as the next firm.

It credits its growth to a programme of investment in staff, technology, brand awareness and focus on personal injury and road traffic claims.

Managing director Maurece Hutchinson said: “We are pleased that we have continued to grow over the last 12 months. We made a strategic decision in 2012 to concentrate solely on personal injury and road traffic claims. Our team, which has now grown to over 60, have built up specialist skills and significant knowledge in this area of law.”

She added: “As well as adding new team members, we have provided staff with the latest phones, tablet and desktop computers for home and remote use to enable them to work more efficiently and effectively for our clients. Additionally we have refurbished both our Belfast and Newry offices to create the best working environment.”
