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.”

Last month, MPs on the justice select committee asked minister Lord Keen what would happen when the government went ahead with its plan to raise the small claims limit for personal injury claims (from £1,000 to £5,000 for road traffic related claims and to £2,000 for everything else). As it is a jurisdiction in which lawyers do not generally operate – because legal costs are not recoverable – who might help claimants navigate what can still be a complex process? His answer, surprisingly, was claims management companies.
