Hill Dickinson boosts Leeds office health team with two new hires

Law firm Hill Dickinson has made two new appointments to its healthcare team in Leeds.

Heather Caddy (pictured, left), legal director, and Will Morris (pictured, right), associate, both join the Leeds office at Hill Dickinson as part of the health advisory practice under partner Ben Troke.

The expansion of the team comes 12 months after Troke joined Hill Dickinson from Browne Jacobson with a remit to develop the advisory practice in Leeds to serve the firm’s fast-growing client base in the region and nationwide.

Welcoming them, Troke said: “Our healthcare team in Leeds serves a huge number of clients UK-wide, including the NHS and independent sector, and expanding the legal services we offer our clients is very much part of the agenda.”

“I am delighted to welcome Heather and Will to the team and am very much looking forward to working with them to grow our health advisory practice. Each brings with them a wealth of experience that will add expertise, capability and strength in depth to the team.”

Caddy joins as a legal director from Browne Jacobson. She has particular expertise in dealing with complex inquests as well as claims and broader healthcare advisory work for a range of clients from the NHS and independent sector. 

Morris has built his legal experience as an in-house lawyer in an NHS trust dealing with inquests, claims and general healthcare advisory work, and adds valuable insight and  understanding of issues from a client perspective to Hill Dickinson.

Health advisory is one area of a full healthcare service offering available to Hill Dickinson clients nationally from Leeds. Other health practice specialisms include commercial, employment, real estate, regulatory and litigation. The Leeds office is led by partner Esther Venning.
