Ramsdens has appointed abuse and personal injury lawyer Natalie Marrison to lead the new abuse team at the firm.
Marrison brings more than 15 years of experience working on a number of high-profile cases in the UK and abroad.
She will develop the existing client base of claims for survivors of both physical and sexual abuse against private institutions and establishments, working on substantial and already established group actions, and will work closely in collaboration with the Child Care and Court of Protection Department within the firm, advising on all aspects of abuse law.
Joanne Coen, partner and head of child care at Ramsdens, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Natalie to the team and having her on board to help grow this new service is a real coup for the personal injury division, and for the firm as a whole. She has a great deal of experience and we know she will be great with our clients.”
Marrison said: “I am thrilled to have joined Ramsdens as partner leading the abuse and personal injury team. Ramsdens is a firm which I have long admired for their forward thinking and innovative business development and the opportunity therefore to help build their abuse department was one that I could not turn down. I am very much looking forward to playing a role in driving the business forward.”
Marrison is a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers, Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and the Law Society personal injury panel.
