National law firm Hampson Hughes has appointed three new members of staff to its clinical negligence team, following a period of growth for the firm.
Lindsey Jenkins, Gemma Dixon and Jhay Mason have joined the firm in their head offices in Liverpool as a solicitor, assistant solicitor and clinical negligence litigation executive respectively.
Hampson Hughes specialises in clinical negligence and personal injury law, representing clients from across England and Wales across a number of areas of practice including clinical negligence, road traffic accidents, accidents at work, product liability and slips, trips and falls.
As a qualified solicitor, Lindsey brings with her over five years’ worth of experience in clinical negligence litigation. She joins Hampson Hughes from a local Liverpool firm, bringing with her an exemplary client service skill set, a compassionate understanding of the field of clinical negligence law, as well as an understanding of the local community.
Gemma qualified as a solicitor in 2020 via CILEX, the professional body for Chartered Legal Executives, legal practitioner, paralegals and apprentices, previously working as a file handler for a large Merseyside based Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence firm.
Jhay Mason has moved to Hampson Hughes from Slater and Gordon, with a strong history within the clinical negligence field, as a paralegal and litigation executive, with proven casework experience and client care skills. Jhay has been involved in some significant and high value Clinical Negligence claims and is due to qualify as a Solicitor next year, with the support of Hampson Hughes.
Carlos Lopez, Director of clinical negligence at Hampson Hughes, said: “We are delighted to welcome Lindsey, Gemma and Jhay to the clinical negligence team at Hampson Hughes. As soon as I met them at interview, I knew that they would be an asset to clients and the firm. They are all passionate about this area of law and I know that they will achieve good results for clients, as well as developing their own careers with us. They now bring the team total to 11 and are part of our drive to solidify Hampson Hughes as a leading North West firm for Clinical Negligence work.
“Acting for those injured through sub-standard medical treatment is an incredibly rewarding occupation, and their passion, dedication and experience within the sector will prove invaluable to the firm as we continue to provide a first-class legal service for what can be incredibly vulnerable people.”
