Hilary Meredith Solicitors has continued its expansion by launching a new career structure and appointing its first ever Associates.
The Wilmslow-based firm has promoted three solicitors to Associate status; Clare White who specialises in serious injury and military claims, Jan Thompson who advises on clinical negligence matters and Vicki Hoyle whose practice covers road traffic accidents, accidents at work and public liability.
Commenting on the appointments, Senior Partner Hilary Meredith said: "These promotions are richly deserved.
"Law firms are only as good as their people and we are delighted to recognise and reward the tremendous contribution Clare, Jan and Vicki are making to the firm."
Added Hilary: "Putting clear career structures in place is an important step as we continue to expand and look to attract the very best lawyers."
The promotions complement a record breaking 2008 for Hilary Meredith Solicitors. In addition to recovering more than £10 million in compensation for clients, Hilary herself collected four separate industry awards - including Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year (claimant) at the inaugural Personal Injury Awards.
The firm is also on target to achieve turnover of £4 million for the 2008 / 2009 financial year - but despite this expansion, Hilary is determined not to go down the route of volume legal services.
She concluded: "Our aim in developing the firm has always been to retain a personal service. A lot of solicitors provide a volume, call centre type of legal advice - particularly in the field of personal injury. I believe there remains a niche for firms that treat their clients as individuals, not numbers, and that is the basis on which we will continue to grow the business.
"Our immediate expansion plans include the recruitment of experienced litigators for our RTA / EL / PL and Industrial Disease department along with a senior cashier."
