Express Solicitors, has expanded to meet growing demand for its services with the appointment of 10 new fee earners.
The recruitment drive follows Express Solicitors’ acquisition of 450 files from Ashfields Solicitors and the organic growth of its own caseloads by some 45% year on year.
Managing Partner at Express Solicitors, James Maxey said: “The firm has never been so busy, especially with the acquisition of 450 personal injury and clinical negligence files from Ashfields Solicitors; it has meant we’ve had to further strengthen our teams to maintain the high levels of customer service we’re renowned for.
“While we needed more lawyers on board, we’ve taken our time to ensure we’ve chosen the most talented people out there, who also have the right experience and attitude. We will continue to grow organically but, if the opportunity presents, we are also open to using our RBS funding to acquire other personal injury law firms as going concerns, or just their caseloads.”
The clinical negligence department has been boosted by the appointments of Lisa-Marie Musgrave and Davina McCreary as assistant solicitors; the employer’s liability team has been strengthened with the recruitment of Nicola Irvine and Fiona Barrett as associate solicitors and Elizabeth Poole, Emma Clarke and Laura Ward as assistant solicitors; two have joined the occupiers and public liability department, Stephen Jewell as an associate solicitor and Catherine Lansley as an assistant solicitor, and Sophie Loxley has joined the costs team as senior litigation executive.
