Nina Ramsden


Nina Ramsden

I qualified as a Solicitor in 1994 and have worked since in both London and Manchester in the field of personal injury law.  In London, I worked at a prominent civil liberties firm working on serious injury cases, where I was also involved in the Public Inquiries into and cases arising from both the Southall and Paddington rail disasters which I attended on behalf of victims of disasters, survivors and families.

I joined Jefferies in 2001, becoming first a Partner in the Firm and thereafter a Director when the Partnership became a limited company. I now specialise in catastrophic injury claims acting on behalf of clients with acquired brain and other life-changing injuries.

I have helped individuals with injuries ranging from mild cognitive difficulties to catastrophic brain injuries requiring 24-hour care and am experienced in the appointment of Case Managers, setting up rehabilitation regimes and working with protected parties.

I am an APIL accredited senior litigator and have been accredited by the Law Society Personal Injury panel.

In March 2019, I was appointed as a Deputy District Judge on the Northern Circuit.

What Nina’s clients say…

 “I could not thank or recommend Jefferies Solicitors enough for the help and support they provided over a 5 year period. I was always kept up to date with my ongoing case.”

Vivian February 2023


“Always been a massive help with anything I need, highly recommend they’re brill.”

Bethany, November 2020


“Highly recommended our case was complex and 5 year long We were informed about all aspects, if we had a question it was answered ASAP if we didn’t understand it was explained. Nothing was too much trouble. Jefferies Solicitors / Nina / Josh and your whole team are spot on and thank you all so much for everything you have done for us. Take care and keep doing what you do 100%”

Tracey, October 2020


“I would go as far as saying that after a few months it didn’t feel like we were speaking to our solicitors but more like the shoulder of a trustworthy friend who was willing to put our minds at rest and guide us.

Not only were we impressed with the professional service but also the empathy and support that was provided.”

Kathryn Harland

Associate/Team Leader

Kathryn Harland

After completing my LLB Hons with French, I secured a training contract with Jefferies Solicitors in 2002, and since qualifying, I have developed a wealth of experience within the personal injury field.  I have for the last 12 years specialised in catastrophic injury claims, acting for clients nationwide, having accomplished numerous multimillion-pound settlements. I have extensive knowledge of the complex process involved in dealing with these claims, including a thorough understanding of the rehabilitation process and the Court of Protection.

I also currently manage a dedicated team of personal injury fee earners and take pride in the training and development of our Trainee Solicitors.

I am accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) as a Senior Litigator, and more recently have qualified as a Mediator in Civil Litigation.

What Kathryn’s clients say…


“Kathryn + Francesca never gave up on us, they supported us through a very traumatic time in our lives, always determined, professional +empathetic. Could not have done this without their support, we can now move on, thanks to them.”

Susan, November 2022

“Excellent and thorough service given by Kathryn from start to finish (and her team).Very professional and understanding. Kathryn has a lovely persona and makes you feel at ease. Highly recommend.”

Jack, July 2022

“Jefferies Solicitors has an excellent understanding of head and brain injuries. My Jefferies Solicitors Legal Team of Kathryn Harland and Beth Morris were very empathetic and supportive of the incident I had been through; the medical treatment received; recognised the gaps in the medical treatment; they understood my rural living situation and sourced ‘top of their field’ medical professionals allowing sufficient travel time to these appointments. Meetings, by zoom and telephone, were always both professional and friendly; emails were prompt and very explanatory. Kathryn’s guidance and advice coupled with information sourced and received from Headway enabled me to be accepting of my recovery road and journey. Again with Kathryn’s help and understanding I have accepted the consequences of my head injury and have worked and continue to work to build a life with a head injury. The two words of ‘thank you’ do not seem adequate to Jefferies Solicitors but I only have two words to say – THANK YOU.”

Jane, June 2022

” Kathryn would always return my calls immediately and no matter how many questions I had – and there were lots at times – she would patiently go through them with me in a language that I could understand.

When you call Kathryn’s telephone number, if she is not available, her message was always updated to say the date when she would next be in the office which was helpful.  Maybe a small gesture on her part but extremely helpful to clients.

Wherever possible meetings were held at our own house which helped us rather than keep travelling.

Kathryn would ring at regular intervals to keep me up to date, and always let me know approximately when the next milepost was going to occur.  In her calls, she would always be prepared to listen to me and offer her empathy.  When I was feeling frustrated Kathryn would help me see where we were going to on this long journey. Kathryn would always speak to me before posting reports to me so that I was prepared for the content in them.  As she was aware of the impact of the report on me.

We could not have had a better team to support us through this traumatic time.”

Barbara, August 2020


“I couldn’t have asked for anyone more caring and helpful towards us throughout the case.”

Christine, November 2019


“Kathryn’s always ensured the right care and rehabilitation programmes are in place with second-to-non consultants. Kathryn has been at the end of the phone helping me and making sure the right team was in place for my rehabilitation all while putting together a case with specialist reports to give my claim the best possible outcome.

She’s always kept me well informed along the way and made sure I understood what was happening and why.

I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a personal injury lawyer as I believe her to be the best there is.

Craig, August 2019


“Thank you for all of your help and for keeping me updated throughout, your hard work means I can put this behind me now and I’m very grateful for everything you’ve done for me.”

Thomas, July 2019
