Personal injury specialists Express Solicitors has again made an impressive round of promotions and new hires across different areas of the business.
Some 63 staff members have been progressed in some way thanks to two recent acquisitions and Express’s integral commitment to internal development.
These new appointments follow on from last year’s round of promotions when Express promoted nearly 10% of its entire workforce.
Managing Partner James Maxey said: “Our firm is always growing, and I am incredibly proud to say we now have around 620 fantastic employees working at Express Solicitors.
“We are committed to retaining and developing our people and this year’s batch of very worthy promotions serves to highlight that. Congratulations to each and every one of them.”
Among those promoted are nine partners who are all specialists in different fields of personal injury. A further five partners have joined Express as a result of the acquisitions.
Express has also promoted seven employees to Senior Associate, 11 to Associate and eight to Solicitor.
There were also 13 employees who became Trainee Solicitors, meaning the firm now has 74 trainees in total.
Earlier in the year Express announced it was to recruit Pupil Barristers and two have now been appointed. They’ll be joined by two more later in the year.
Alongside a Senior Litigation Executive, other changes were made within the HR team, and at Ontime Reports, a medical agency part of the Express Solicitors Group, there have been five additional promotions this year.
What’s more, Express Solicitors is still recruiting and continues to attract a high level of interest from lawyers and non-lawyers across all areas of the business.
This is especially true of law graduates and paralegals who wish to join the firm due to its proven commitment to investment in people with dedicated training and defined career pathways.
Express is also in the process of moving all of its staff over to offices, which are currently undergoing a multi million-pound refurbishment, in Sharston, Manchester. This move will offer even more space for expansion.
