Emsleys Solicitors has appointed John Hutchings, a personal injury solicitor, as a director at the firm.
With over 14 years’ experience in the personal injury field, John is an expert in employer’s liability claims. He also specialises in high value cases relating to brain and spinal cord injury and traumatic amputation.
Since joining Emsleys in June 2016, John has worked on Review My Claim, Emsleys’ award-winning initiative which tackles poor legal advice and service, helping genuine accident victims get the compensation they are entitled to. He regularly attends courses with Headway, a national charity supporting those affected by brain injury.
John was also recommended in The Legal 500 2017, which praised the team for their work in claimant personal injury and recognised Emsleys as a ’go-to firm for under-settled cases’.
John said: ’I am looking forward to further developing the Emsleys brand and also sharing my experience to ensure the personal injury team continues to grow.’
Director and Head of Personal Injury Andrew Greenwood said: ’The appointment recognises John’s contribution to the leadership of a progressive and successful team.’
