About the role

About JMP Solicitors

  • You will be taking over an established client base of business owners and directors and small to medium enterprises and report to the managing director.

  • The portfolio of matters is mixed. Split broadly into three areas (all in growth): Commercial Property and Leasehold; drafting and non-contentious; and business disputes and litigation.

  • The Business-to-Business department is a cornerstone of the strategic direction of the firm, now into the second year of a growth and investment plan initiated in 2016.

  • We were established in 2000 as a limited company by Ian Howard - managing director and Yvonne Carratt, director and Head of Private Client. In 2013 the firm actively grew a more traditional legal practice to sit alongside the core litigation business. We now have a full-service practice serving families and individuals.

  • We were early adopters of technology and run an electronic case-management system - Proclaim Eclipse. We have a low staff attrition rate, are active in our community through charity support and business networks and actively seek feedback from our clients.

  • We are a well-run firm. In June 2017, we were appointed Lexcel accreditation on our first attempt - with no minor or major non-compliances. In October, we replaced our IT infrastructure having been awarded a grant from Business Lincolnshire. We are recognised by the legal directories and were recognised as Business of The Year in 2015 by our local business community.
