Fletchers Solicitors Expands Clinical Negligence Offering with Trio of Senior Appointments

We are delighted to announce that we have bolstered our dedicated Clinical Negligence Team with the appointment of three new senior solicitors.

Lynne Ainsworth, Nina Sahu and Christian Beadell have joined Fletchers as Senior Solicitors within our Clinical Negligence Department.

As part of the Fletchers team, Lynne will be a Supervisor within our specialist Clinical Negligence Serious Injury Team, which deals with high-value, catastrophic injury cases. Lynne brings with her over 15 years’ experience and joins from Slater and Gordon, where she was a Senior Associate in clinical negligence for the past 10 years.

Nina, who is on the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel and has over 15 years’ experience in dealing with clinical negligence claims, has also joined our team. She will be working in our clinical negligence department, in our specialist litigation team.

And the third addition to our team is Christian, who was listed in this year’s Legal 500 as a Solicitor that ‘goes more than the extra mile for clients’, has over 20 years’ legal experience and is currently a panel Solicitor in the Group B Step Support Group, a charity dedicated to eradicating group B Strep infections in babies. He has extensive experience in group action cases and is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). At Fletchers, Christian will be supervising a team within the Clinical Negligence Department

Our Head of Clinical Negligence, Georgia Briscoe spoke about what the new appointments will bring to the department, “The trio’s extensive experience and wealth of clinical negligence knowledge will make them highly valuable members of our team and we’re very pleased for them to be coming on board.”

The three key appointments have come during another period of growth for us and as we continue to expand our clinical negligence offering. We are proud to now have over 330 employees, with our Clinical Negligence Division now over 100 people, making it one of the largest departments of its kind in the UK.
