CEO, Karen Jackson Short Listed for Entrepreneur of the Year Awards

We are delighted to announce that Karen Jackson, CEO of Roberts Jackson Solicitors has been short listed for ‘Female Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the 2014 North West Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. This adds to another individual nomination Karen has received this year – “The Entrepreneur of the Year” award at this year’s Modern Law Awards.

As a firm, Roberts Jackson consistently receive short listings and awards, so when we hear news of an individual being short listed, it gives us even more pleasure. Karen has been in the legal industry for around 20 years and has worked on both the defendant and claimant side of personal injury law. In 2009 Karen and her husband, Oliver Jackson, founded Roberts Jackson Solicitors and being shortlisted for such prestigious awards is  recognition of their excellent business tactics and skills.

Karen said   “I am very grateful to have been shortlisted and my thanks go to the judges. I have been shortlisted against some very impressive people and I am truly honoured.”
