Department Merger Supports Growth in Technical and Serious Injury Teams

Winn Solicitors has strengthened its legal offering with the merging of departments to support growth in its technical and serious injury claims teams.

The North East law firm, part of Winn Group, has completed a forward-looking restructuring within the Personal Injury department to create the Serious and Technical Injury Claims Team by merging the EL/PL Technical Claims Team and the Complex Team.

Falling under the overarching supervision of Winn Group Associate Director David Dewar, the move is designed to build and improve upon the links that exist between cases handled by Complex and EL/PL, with additional Complex Fee Earners ensuring growth as the company seeks increasing volumes of claims of this nature.

With an already large caseload of active cases in these sectors, the switch reinforces the department as Winns continues its exponential growth despite rivals shrinking and even leaving the market altogether in recent months.

Dewar said: “Since joining Winn Solicitors, I have been impressed by the calibre of lawyers within the Complex and EL/PL Technical Claims Teams. 

“I am excited by the formation of the Serious and Technical Injury Claims Team as it is the perfect blend of skills and experience from both teams that will allow more of the recognition the PI Department deserves. 

“The formation of the new team, together with growth in new client instructions in the last 12 months, provides the ideal platform to continue our planned growth strategy including further expansion into the serious injury claims arena.” 

The move comes amid an exciting time of growth at Winns, with a series of contract wins and a huge recruitment drive that has significantly increased the employee headcount in the last 12 months.
