Jefferies Solicitors is a specialist personal injury law firm based in Altrincham, Greater Manchester. It deals with a wide range of compensation claims for accidents and personal injury across England and Wales, and believes that “everyone has the right to justice no matter who you are”.

Established in 1993, the firm has built a strong specialist team of personal injury solicitors with the expertise required to handle a diverse range of personal injury work. There is also an experienced team of clinical and medical negligence solicitors and a dedicated catastrophic injury department.

The legal firm, based in a very convenient location with excellent transport links and plenty of shops, bars and restaurants nearby, looks after its own, too. During the pandemic, senior leaders arranged for care packages to be sent out to everyone to boost morale and – ahead of restrictions being lifted – the company has engaged consultants to help redesign the office to create a more efficient and pleasant working environment.

Newly accredited as a Best Company to Work For, Jefferies Solicitors gives employees genuine flexibility that increases with length of service. A flexitime system affords staff the freedom and responsibility to manage their time to allow for a great work/life balance.

MD Michael Jefferies sent weekly video updates to all staff and, in keeping with it being a very sociable company, arranged frequent Zoom events such as coffee mornings and quizzes. Michael also fully engaged with employees early on in lockdown, contacting everyone individually.
