Roberts Jackson has promoted two of its solicitors, Koyes Ahmed and Mardin Ali, to associate level.
Ali started working for the industrial disease firm in November 2011 in the marketing department, working her way up to fee earner. Shortly after, Ali became a trainee solicitor gaining a training contract due to her determination and her success in settling a vast amount of cases at the firm. She is now a manager and solicitor handling a varied case load whilst working on the day-to-day management of the firm. She will specialise in industrial disease claims, in particular noise induced hearing loss, occupational dermatitis and asthma claims.
Ahmed will also specialise in industrial disease claims, in particular noise induced hearing loss, occupational dermatitis and asthma claims. He also plays a significant part in the implementation of various management projects aimed at the improvement of the firm’s efficiency. He also runs a team of fee earners ranging from litigation executives to qualified solicitors.
After joining the firm in 2012, Ahmed was soon promoted to become a fee earner, followed by a promotion to deputy team leader and then team leader of the pre-litigation department, during which time he was awarded a training contract. He was eventually promoted to a head litigator and then to senior head litigator. In the meantime, he was admitted as a solicitor on 1 December 2015.
“I’m really excited about taking on new responsibilities and am looking forward to making a change in many clients’ lives,” said Ali. “The people, as well as the training and support at Roberts Jackson, make it a wonderful place to work.”
Ahmed praised the “driven professionals” who have provided himw with excellent advice and support at Roberts Jackson.
“Roberts Jackson has helped me on my journey, giving me an opportunity to hone my abilities, demonstrate my qualities in order to help the firm to attain constant improvement, and facilitating my success so far,” he said.
