Vicki Capper and Amy Moylan come from the defendant firm, Hill Dickinson. Both recruits began their new roles at the beginning of November.
Alison Flaherty, partner and head of clinical negligence serious injury 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 specialises in brain and spinal cord clinical negligence injuries. She commented; “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 is recognised in the Legal 500 2024 as a ‘key lawyer’. She explained that she had been considering a transfer across from defendant to claimant work for some time. She 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: “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.”
