We are delighted to announce that our clinical negligence team is expanding its geographical reach into the West Midlands, with the creation of a new team led by Legal Director James Anderson. James will be relocating from Leicester to Birmingham to lead the team from Tuesday 1st November.
James joined the firm as a paralegal in 2013 before qualifying as a solicitor in 2017, and working his way up to Legal Director. He specialises in birth injury, missed diagnosis of cancer, orthopaedic injuries and negligently-performed surgery claims. He says: “I am truly thrilled to be moving to the Birmingham hub and helping expand our offering in the city and wider West Midlands region.
“I became a clinical negligence lawyer because I am passionate about helping people. Giving my clients a voice and fighting to get the answers they deserve is extremely rewarding.”
Our Head of Clinical Negligence, Robert Rose, says: “Since joining us almost a decade ago, James has flourished into an excellent clinical negligence solicitor who has worked tirelessly to get answers for his clients and secure compensation to enable them to move forward with their lives.”
The clinical negligence team started in 2010 with Robert Rose, Neil Clayton and Nikki Fahey, and was based solely in Leicester until Neil relocated to London to develop the wider team there. In 2021, the London team welcomed several new experts when they transferred across from Hudgell Solicitors and since then, the team has grown to over 40 people and is now set to bring further opportunities for both our people and our clients.
We will continue to provide excellent client services UK-wide, with further support in a different region of the Midlands. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and shows positive, organic growth for the Lime Solicitors brand. We continue to invest in the development of our people and client services.
For now, we look forward to welcoming James Anderson to our Birmingham office!
