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.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
