FLETCHERS SOLICITORS SOUTHPORT STRIDES FORWARD WITH GROWTH PLANS WITH MORE STAFF AND OFFICE EXPANSION June 19th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments FLETCHERS SOLICITORS SOUTHPORT STRIDES FORWARD WITH GROWTH PLANS WITH MORE STAFF AND OFFICE EXPANSION One of the UK’s leading medical negligence and personal injury law firms, Fletchers Solicitors, has doubled its workforce and expanded its clinical negligence offering with a larger office space. Following a significant increase in the number of medical negligence cases it receives, the North West firm has invested in more office space, expanding its current office on Hoghton Street, Southport, by 9,000 square feet to meet this demand. The company now handles one in 10 medical negligence cases in the UK, and its larger premises will be home to a dedicated team of clinical negligence, as well as personal injury specialists. Fletchers Solicitors has increased staff numbers from 108 to 220 in the last year. The firm has recently undertaken a recruitment drive to attract the best clinical negligence talent, in plans to become the number one law firm for medical negligence. The new office space includes three additional meeting rooms and a brand new training room to further support staff development. The training room is kitted out with individual workstations set up to replicate the office floor to allow employees to train in a practical, hands on way. The office expansion also allows Fletchers Solicitors sister company, Ultimate Costs, a legal costs drafting company, to move into the same building. Ed Fletcher, CEO of Fletchers Solicitors, said: “We are in a tremendous growth period at the moment, which has seen both a number of new appointments and a significant increase in the number of medical negligence cases we are handling. This larger dedicated office will provide clients who have suffered negligent care with one place they can turn to for all of their legal needs. ”Our philosophy has always been to do our very best for the victims of serious injury and medical negligence, and we know that the best way to do so is to have a committed and determined team who possess a wealth of specialist experience and knowledge. Expanding our dedicated office to handle these types of cases seemed like a natural step.” Earlier this year, the firm was recognised by the London Stock Exchange as one of the 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain, and awarded a coveted one star accreditation from The Sunday Times ‘Best Companies to Work For’ scheme.
