Hudgell Solicitors has bought single partner practice Josie Robinson Solicitors.
Experienced clinical negligence specialist Josie Robinson has 15 years’ experience in running clinical negligence claims and previously worked for ten years as a physiotherapist. Robinson developed a niche practice in medical negligence in sport at her firm and she has acted for sports men and women who had their careers cut short due to negligent treatment of sports injuries, including an award of £300,000 for a professional football player at the beginning of his career.
She said that claims arising from negligent management and treatment of sports injuries, was a growing area of her work, particularly in light of the increased awareness of the risk of brain injury from repeated concussion injuries in rugby, football and other contact sports.
“It is a really exciting opportunity for me to use my expertise and experience to help influence the development of a growing firm like Hudgell Solicitors, so it is something I am really looking forward to,” said Robinson.
“My practice was successful and certainly something I could have continued with, but I wanted a new challenge and to be able to use my knowledge and skills to make a bigger impact. As part of a firm like Hudgell Solicitors, I will be able to influence the development of key areas of the business.”
Hudgell Solicitors chief executive Amanda Stevens said: “We are delighted to have secured the services of Josie, whose skills, knowledge and experience will be a huge benefit to our work in London and the surrounding areas.
“Josie has a track record of successfully representing clients in all areas of clinical negligence, but importantly she has had vital experience of working in some niche areas within her own firm, which we feel will be of real value to us as we look to further develop our offering.”
