JS Group photoAltrincham-based Jefferies Solicitors has made seven new appointments to bring even more experience and expertise to their well-established compensation specialist team.

Newly appointed litigation executives, Jenny Fenton and Rebecca Shippam, will both specialise in road traffic accidents, employer and public liability. Jenny returns to Jefferies following seven years at Manchester’s TPC Solicitors. While Rebecca, who has over 12 years compensation claims experience, is looking forward to tackling new challenges in the personal injury and medical negligence sectors.

With a combined 21 years experience, solicitors Sonia Alexiou and Lisa Kelsall, will strengthen the team in dealing with a wide range of compensation claims from industrial injuries to clinical negligence and traffic offences. Sonia, has a strong background in risk-assessing high-value claims and often deals with unusual cases.

Having previously worked at Slater & Gordon, Lisa has a proven track record in casework. Her new role in quality control will look at streamlining systems, training and auditing – vital for cases with a quick turnover.

David Woolmer, Adela Royle and Kane Smith – clinical negligence specialists – have also been recruited to deal with new enquiries and assess cases. David will spend two days a week in a customer-facing role at the firms recently opened high-street branch in Hanley.

Michael Jefferies, managing director of Jefferies Solicitors comments: “We are thrilled to welcome the new recruits, bringing with them exceptional skills and experience to further enhance our offering. Many employees are attracted by our flexible policy, which allows for a good work-life balance.

Michael continues: “The arrival of the newcomers underlines our commitment to providing outstanding client service and expert legal advice.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
