National law firm Simpson Millar has announced the appointment of Deborah Krelle as new Head of Industrial Disease.
With more than 20 years’ experience in dealing with industrial disease claims – including hand arm vibration, asbestos disease, asthma and industrial deafness claims - Deborah takes up her new role following two years at Michael W Halsall Solicitors in Merseyside.
Based in the firm’s Manchester office she will oversee a team of ten specialist lawyers.
Commenting on Deborah’s appointment Greg Cox, Simpson Millar Managing Partner and CEO, said: ’I am pleased to welcome Deborah to the team.
