Express Solicitors has promoted both Leanne Rowley and Robert Weeden to associate partner.
Rowley started her legal career in the new client team at Express Solicitors seven years ago. She now works in the occupiers liability and public liability department on a variety of claims ranging from slips and trips to sporting injuries as a result of violent conduct.
In the employer’s liability department, Weeden specialises in accidents at work and industrial disease, and has experience in claims involving life changing and significant injuries as well as those arising from exposure to noise, vibratory tools and asbestos in the workplace. He joined Express Solicitor as a newly qualified solicitor in 2011.
James Maxey (pictured), managing partner at Express Solicitors said: “These are well deserved promotions of two dedicated and loyal lawyers, who have helped the firm get where it is today. The fact that Leanne started in our new client team and Rob as a newly qualified solicitor is not only testament to their hard work and tenacity, but also demonstrates the firm’s commitment to training and developing quality lawyers to fulfil their ambitions of becoming partner.”
Express Solicitors recently secured a £17m funding deal with Royal Bank of Scotland to support it in achieving 60% growth in the next five years and securing £20m annual fee income.
