Don’t just take our word for it, hear what our staff have to say
Senior Head of Litigation & Head of COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health)
“I was coming to the end of my LPC and I was looking at which area of law to go into. I found out about industrial disease and became interested, and then I discovered Roberts Jackson. It was very early days in the firm’s existence but I was really impressed with Karen and Oliver’s vision. That was five years ago and now I head up a department and am a shareholder. It’s been amazing watching the company grow. I feel so proud of the firm and my involvement in its success.
I’m now Head of COSHH so I oversee the whole department, managing incoming cases, vetting, quality control, driving the progression of the cases through the critical key stages and making sure there are no unnecessary delays.
I’m responsible for the whole team and for making sure our knowledge is up to date, so I bring in counsel, medical experts, you name it, our training schedule never ends!
I am also a Senior Head of Litigation so I manage two team leaders, working closely with them on settlement strategies and operations for their teams. I have my own caseload and the same targets as everyone else so the management part of my job just has to fit in! I’m also on the Social Committee and that’s taken pretty seriously at Roberts Jackson, so I have my work cut out for me.
I think Roberts Jackson is massively different from other firms! The responsibility you’re allowed to have here is amazing. To become a shareholder under the age of 30 – that’s so rare. I just think there are more opportunities here and the chance to really make a difference – you’re not just another number. I really feel part of something.
In terms of the future, I have high hopes at Roberts Jackson. You’re encouraged not to have a ‘ceiling’ here and actively encouraged to go as far as you can and have no limits!

Our staff and clients are at the heart of everything we do. Watch the video to hear some of our staff stories and what makes working at Roberts Jackson so great.
“I had heard that Roberts Jackson was a different kind of law firm, very commercial in its approach and not at all traditional. I’d heard the firm took a lot of care of its diverse workforce and that there was a very innovative vibe.
I am a Solicitor and shareholder at Roberts Jackson running a number of different types of claims achieving justice for our clients – our number one goal. I am also the deputy of the Noise Induced Hearing Loss team and as such I assist junior fee earners with any queries and expanding their knowledge on the changing NIHL literature and guidelines. My tasks can vary depending on what type of case I am working on, from carrying out witness statements, attending court hearings (be that by telephone or in attendance at trial) and updating clients throughout their journey.
I continually update my knowledge every day whilst working at Roberts Jackson, be that on cases or my commercial knowledge of how a law firm is run. Just recently I assisted on a very high value complex Personal Injury case which expanded my knowledge vastly and allowed me to experience working on a case which most solicitors post 2 year PQE would never get chance to. It enabled me to then oversee the new cases we bring in whilst assisting a trainee solicitor also in that area to develop her knowledge and skills.
The firm balances putting the clients first and ensuring that all individuals in the firm, be that fee earners or support staff, get the same treatment and opportunities on their journey.
I hope to keep excelling and progressing my career at Roberts Jackson as much as I can and I know the opportunities are there for that to be achieved.
I live in Stockport and find the journey to Wilmslow relatively easy. It’s a lovely place to work and is an ideal place for such a groundbreaking law firm to be based.”
