East Anglian firm Tees has appointed two newly-qualified solicitors to its clinical negligence team.
Sarah Stocker has returned to the firm where she worked as a paralegal, while Isobel Foenander has completed her training with Tees.
Stocker, having trained elsewhere, will now handle a varied caseload of claims including orthopaedics; bariatric and general surgery; delayed diagnoses; and cosmetic surgery, in which she is now specialising. Foenander has spent the last six months training in the clinical negligence team, and has assisted on a range of complex claims at various stages of litigation, including adult and child brain injury, elderly care, birth injuries, orthopaedics and delayed diagnosis.
Over the next few months Stocker and Foenander will be on secondment for one day per week to work at patient safety charity Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA).
Two new paralegals, Serena Tam and Caragh Hargreaves, have also joined Tees’ growing clinical negligence team in Cambridge.
Executive partner Janine Collier said: “Tees’ clinical negligence and personal injury team is one of the most experienced and successful in East Anglia. We are proud to have recruited Sarah and Isobel – two very able and bright newly-qualified solicitors – to the team. They will help make a difference to the lives of people who’ve been affected by personal injury and medical negligence, many of whom suffer catastrophic, life-changing injuries.”
Tees’ clinical negligence team once again received a Top Tier ranking for East Anglia in the recent legal directory Legal 500 this year. It has corporate accreditation from the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and is an approved solicitor for brain injury association Headway.
