Novum Law, the specialist personal injury law firm, has appointed five new solicitors as part of its expansion as demand for its expert legal services for claimants grows.
This is the highest number of new solicitor appointments at the firm since 2014 and reflects the ongoing success of the business.
Nayo Kirkpatrick joins from New Law Solicitors in Bristol, where he worked on serious personal injury cases gaining valuable experience in claimant litigation. Nayo will be joining the Swindon team which specialises in high value serious personal injury and head injury compensation claims, reporting to Director Anna Cole.
Rebecca Max also joins the Swindon team from Simpson Millar in Bristol working with Director Huw Ponting and his expert team of solicitors on complex personal injury and traumatic brain injury cases.
Novum Law opened its new Southampton office in December 2015 with a dedicated asbestos team led by Peter Hilditch and Lynn Yeates. Emma Harman has now joined the Southampton team having gained experience with Southampton law firms Lamport Bassitt and Moore Blatch before joining Novum Law’s regional asbestos team which helps people affected by asbestos-related illnesses throughout southern England.
Alexandra Moore joins Novum Law’s growing Isle of Wight based team in the firm’s office in Newport. Alexandra brings many years of experience to her role assisting Novum Law Director Darren O’Sullivan on personal injury and medical negligence cases. Alexandra most recently worked at Moore Blatch and before that as an assistant to the Chief Magistrate in the Falkland Islands.
The fifth new starter is Jessica Ryan who joins Novum Law’s Salisbury office headed by Director Neil Elliott. Jessica, a fluent French speaker, joins Novum law’s thriving personal injury team where she will handle complex serious injury and medical negligence cases.
Chief Executive of Novum Law Thomas Sheppard said: “Our business model is built on giving our clients a solicitor-led personal service and we need good people to grow our business. These five new recruits will allow us to continue to grow our reputation as a specialist in personal injury, medical negligence and asbestos-related disease work.
“In a sector where there is considerable pessimism, we are committed to attracting and retaining talented solicitors who can really make a difference for our clients and at the same time build an interesting and rewarding career for themselves. I’m very much looking forward to seeing Nayo, Rebecca, Emma, Alexandra and Jessica working in their new teams.”
