Karen Jackson wins Professional Organisation Woman of the Year 2017

The awards aim to recognise successful women and businesses that have made an outstanding contribution to the North West region.  Her firm is a niche practice which acts for victims of work-related diseases including asbestosis and occupational asthma.

Karen is an adventurous, innovative leader and focused on people.  In 2016, she created a unique employee shareholder scheme enabling dedicated employees to become shareholders, rewarding success.

Karen developed an award-winning training programme, involving 200+ hours of training per year.  This sees graduates coming directly from law schools to become some of the country’s top disease litigators.   The firm has built a model that sets it apart in the legal marketplace, one where there is a focus and a solid grasp of one unique area of law.

Karen`s view is that talent should be rewarded regardless of sex, ethnicity and other factors.  Roberts Jackson is diverse, with fewer than 40% describing themselves as white British.  The average age of staff is 31 and 52% of staff are female.  The firm is a signatory of the diversity and inclusion charter.

"We put our clients, the victims of workplace illness, at the centre of what we do."
Karen Jackson

Commenting on her award, Karen said:

“I am so proud of what my colleagues and I have achieved.  We put our clients, the victims of workplace illness, at the centre of what we do.  We put energy and investment, every year, into making it easier for our clients to get the justice they deserve, and we are continuing to do that.  I’m so pleased that has been recognised and to win this accolade just reassures me that we are doing a good job.”
