Fletchers appoints two lawyers from the defendant sector
Fletchers Solicitors has appointed two senior lawyers into its Clinical Negligence team.
Both Vicki Capper and Amy Moylan come from the defendant firm, Hill Dickinson.
They began their new roles at the beginning of November, and according to Alison Flaherty, Partner and Head of Clinical Negligence Serious Injury, their arrival emphasises the ongoing success of Fletchers in attracting lawyers from leading national firms, both from the defendant and claimant side.
Alison said: “We are determined to look across the whole sector to find the best talent for our clients. The more lawyers within the Group, the more diverse service we can offer our clients, and it is great news that two such experienced lawyers are joining our clinical negligence team.”
Vicki Capper, who specialises in brain and spinal cord clinical negligence injuries said: “Fletchers has a strong reputation as a fast growing and progressive law firm which made it stand out as an attractive place to further develop my career. I was also very impressed by the team dynamic, and it is clear that Fletchers value and take pride in their lawyers. It’s an exciting time to be joining the business and I’m really looking forward to making my mark here.”
Amy Moylan, who was recognised in the Legal 500 2024 as a ‘key lawyer’, explained that she had been considering a transfer across from defendant to claimant work for some time and chose Fletchers because “like Vicki, I’ve been impressed by the management’s commitment to social purpose and its workforce.”
“The opportunity to help and support the most vulnerable people who often have no-one else to turn to in their hour of need was a key factor in my choosing to change the direction of my career in this way.”
Alison Flaherty added: “We expect to continue to invest our resources in people and technology. Our renewed AI partnership with the University of Liverpool is expected to help us take on more work in the ever-developing clinical negligence environment and to provide access to justice for injured people.
“Clinical negligence is a significant practice area for the firm, and I am confident that Amy and Vicki will make substantive contributions to the future success of our team as we continue to grow our varied specialisms in serious injury clinical negligence work.”
