Specialist professional negligence solicitor Daniel Brumpton has joined the Derby office of Nelsons Solicitors as a partner.

With more than 13 years’ experience, Daniel has added a wealth of expertise to the expanding dispute resolution team, based in Lodge Lane, following his move from Manchester-based law firm Berg Legal.

He said: ’I am thrilled to have joined Nelsons – it is a large and respected regional law firm with a national presence so I am looking forward to developing my career further here. I like to build good relationships and trust with my clients and my priority going forward is to work with the team to develop the dispute resolution department.’

Daniel specialises in professional negligence claims and commercial dispute resolution. He is recognised by the independently researched legal directories, Chambers and Partners and Legal 500, as a key individual in professional negligence.

He said: ’Professional negligence and commercial dispute resolution is an incredibly interesting area of law and every case is different. I enjoy getting to grips with the problem before me and solving it.’

Daniel – who also worked in the Sheffield office of Irwin Mitchell Solicitors for 10 years – will be working alongside the firm’s seven other Derby-based dispute resolution specialists.

Partner Cathryn Selby said: ’Daniel and I have worked together previously at Irwin Mitchell and it is great to have a high profile professional negligence specialist join me at Nelsons. His experience and expertise will be a real asset to the department in Derby and I am looking forward to seeing him flourish in his new role.

’Just recently, Nelsons in Derby and Nottingham was recognised as a top tier firm in commercial litigation in the Legal 500’s prestigious annual list of recommended law firms.

‘Our inclusion in this alongside the professional negligence, property litigation and contentious trusts and probate categories is testament to the dedication and passion of our team who work tirelessly to offer the very best client service possible across these litigation specialisms.’
