Serious injury specialist Mark Ellis is to join the management team of Liverpool-based personal injury law firm SGI Legal as it gears up to increase the amount of work it undertakes in this area.

Mark Ellis joins from Duncan Gibbins Solicitors, where he dealt with high-value multi-track road traffic accident, employers’ liability and public liability cases. He has a particular interest in traumatic brain injury cases and as head of serious injury, Mark will develop SGI’s capabilities in this area and report directly to the firm’s board.

Mark said: ‘As a serious injury lawyer I believe it is crucial that expert legal principles are combined with exceptional client care. I share SGI’s vision of delivering the very best personal injury experience and I’m delighted to be joining a team that is developing fresh and innovative ideas to challenge the status quo in the delivery of personal injury legal services.’
