The former Ryde School pupil and Bournemouth University law graduate who achieved a distinction in her Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, joins from Roach Pittis Solicitors where she focused on civil litigation cases, including representing Claimants in personal injury claims.
In her new role, Jemma will be developing and honing her skills in the specialist fields of personal injury and medical negligence.

Darren O’Sullivan who heads up the Novum Law Isle of Wight offices, said:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for a young, ambitious solicitor keen to specialise in personal injury and medical negligence work.
“Our expert team represents individuals who have been involved in major accidents or have serious illnesses. We focus on getting the right rehabilitation and support for clients embarking on a compensation claim, and putting together the best combination of experts to achieve positive outcomes for our clients and their families.
“Our practice is growing and we are working on an increasing number of high value claims which demand a detailed, meticulous approach and a real ‘can do’ attitude as well as in-depth legal knowledge. Jemma has all the qualities we are looking for and more and we are delighted to recruit our newest member of the team who is from the island and understands our clients’ needs.”
Commenting on her new role Jemma said:
“Novum Law is an exciting, rapidly growing firm and I am thrilled to be part of its expansion plans as it looks to increase business on the Island.
“I have great admiration for Novum Law’s work, particularly its work helping clients, including children and their families, by helping to assemble and coordinate multi-disciplinary teams of professionals during the preparation and progression of high-value compensation claims. I am looking forward to contributing to the valuable work they do.”
