Medical Solicitors opens its third branch in Yorkshire

Niche medicolegal firm Medical Solicitors has opened a new office in Hull, its third in Yorkshire.

The branch, based at The Deep Business Centre on the Humber Estuary, opened on 20 September. Medical negligence solicitor Simon Wilson has joined the firm to lead the new East Yorkshire office.

Medical Solicitors said the new office space will help Wilson and the firm, which has offices in Sheffield and York, strengthen their foothold in the region and meet the growing demand for clinical negligence claims.

Wilson said: “I have known Caroline [Moore, director of Medical Solicitors] for many years and have seen how her business has gone from strength to strength. I am delighted to have the opportunity to be involved in growing the business further with the addition of the Hull office, which adds another string to the bow of Medical Solicitors and allows further development.”

Wilson has spent 25 years in the clinical negligence field since he was handed his first caseload shortly after qualifying in 1996.

During that time, he has established and developed clinical negligence departments at various law firms, and was involved at management level at his last firm. He helped raise its national profile through his involvement in business development and marketing.

Throughout his career, Wilson has developed many areas of specialism within medical negligence, such as cases involving stroke, bile duct injuries, deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism, and orthopaedic claims. He also has expertise in the coronial system and has represented many families through the inquest process.

Moore said: “I have known and liked Simon for many years and I am thrilled to be welcoming him to our team of senior lawyers. As well as being a skilled litigator, he has a wealth of strategic, commercial and managerial experience. This opportunity has also allowed us to complete a ‘Yorkshire Triangle’ with three offices now in the region. Who knew The Deep in Hull offered such fantastic office space and conferencing facilities?”

As the culture capital of the north, the expansion into Hull is an exciting move for Medical Solicitors The waterside location overlooks the Humber, with the business centre offering environmentally friendly practices as part of its pledge to improve conservation in the city.

This is the second new office to open for Medical Solicitors in a year. Last November, the firm launched the branch in York, which is led by medical negligence specialist Sarah Johnson.
