» Back To Department

Bethany Knight is an Assistant Solicitor in the Employer’s Liability department at Express Solicitors. Before having joined the firm at this level in August 2020, Bethany first joined as part of the New Client Team in 2015, after completing her undergraduate degree.

When asked what she enjoys most about her role, Bethany’s response was ‘’I enjoy the problem-solving element of my job and being able to find the best possible outcome for my clients. I trained as a Solicitor at a Defendant firm and this has enabled me to increase my knowledge of how Defendant’s work and the best way to work with them to settle cases. I can use this knowledge to plan the next steps in a case to match that of the Defendant insurers and solicitors.’’

Bethany has a strong personal injury background, having previously been involved in Catastrophic Injury cases for 4 years. She strives to better herself every day and will use all of her experiences to get the best for the clients.  She has specialised in Employers Liability claims because of her belief that employees should feel safe within their workspace, it is where they spend most of their working lives!

Excellent communication skills are what Bethany believes to be the most required skill for working with our clients. She prides herself on being able to communicate effectively with clients. She is empathetic to their situation and understand the impact an accident can have on our client’s lives. Regular communication setting out the next steps of the case and updating our clients at every hurdle is key.

Bethany completed her undergraduate degree at Edge Hill University in Criminology and Criminal Justice, before moving on to complete her GDL at the University of Law. Bethany then went on and completed her LPC with master’s at the University of Law before commencing her training contract.

Bethany is a huge Manchester United fan and spend a lot of time watching United or moaning about the fact that they can only reach semi-finals (!). ‘’Football in general is probably my biggest hobby but I’m also a massive music fan, like most people on the planet.’’ Says Bethany.

The Courteeners are her favourite band in the whole world, a Manchester band who in her opinion, are massively underrated. Bethany has been to see Courteeners live over 15 times and will continue to attend all of their gigs!

In addition to that, she enjoys reading and collecting books for her “library”, setting a challenge each year of reading a certain number of books.

 Bethany’s favourite quote isHappiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” J.K Rowling – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
