Jackon Lees Group recognised in leading sector directory

Four lawyers from award-winning North West law firm Jackson Lees Group have been recognised within the globally renowned legal directory, Chambers and Partners.

The highly respected guide independently researches the world’s most outstanding legal firms and lawyers to produce a comprehensive listing of the sector’s best and brightest.

The directory covers firms ranging from boutiques to multi-nationals, and has recognised four individuals within the firm’s Housing, Clinical Negligence, and Actions Against the Police practice areas.

Three of the team retain their places within the directory, and have been recognised for continued excellence. Renowned human rights lawyer, Chris Topping, an access to justice champion and director in Broudie Jackson Canter’s Civil Liberties department, has been celebrated for his work across the UK; Julia Hurlbut, who leads Jackson Lees’ Clinical Negligence department, and Martin Hood, Deputy Head of the Clinical Negligence department have both been lauded for their work within Liverpool and the surrounding region.

Jonathan Davidson, who works within Broudie Jackson Canters’ Housing and Welfare department, is a new entrant in the directory. Jonathan has been recognised for his work across the North West representing tenants in a wide range of tenancy and housing matters, including housing disrepair, anti-social behaviour accusations, Committal Proceedings for Contempt of Court and possession proceedings. He also represents homeless clients in all aspects of Homelessness Law.

Before training as a solicitor, Jonathan worked at the Whitechapel Centre for nine years, working his way up to manager in the floating support team, helping people with drug and alcohol issues. Jonathan has delivered training courses for Liverpool Law Society and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and acts as a mentor to law students from both the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University.

Esther Leach, Managing Director of Jackson Lees Group, said: “We’re so pleased and proud to see the outstanding experience within our team being recognised in one of the world’s most respected legal directories. As we all work together to Make a Positive Difference, it’s brilliant to see our Housing, Clinical Negligence, and Actions Against the Police departments receive this very well deserved recognition for their talent, knowledge and expertise. We’re particularly pleased to see Jonathan’s addition to the directory, which reflects his brilliant track record and deep commitment to securing justice for clients within our Housing and Welfare practice.”

Broudie Jackson Canter and Jackson Lees are part of the award-winning Jackson Lees Group. The group provides a full-service legal solution to personal and commercial clients and has over 300 employees across six offices in Merseyside and Manchester.
