Rigby (pictured below) said: “Working at Fletchers Solicitors is an absolute joy and I feel that I have found my home. I have always liked the challenge of progressing to a management role and taking on the responsibilities that come with it. So, being given the chance to move up within Fletchers to a more senior level fits in well with my personal goals.
“My new role will allow me to help develop the teams and individuals within the ever-growing medical negligence department. I’m really excited to get stuck in and help to enhance Fletchers’ already strong and positive reputation for excellent customer service and quality.”
Ed Fletcher, CEO of Fletchers Solicitors, said that Rigby was an ideal candidate for the position as he had demonstrated an “immense level of expertise and knowledge” during his time with the firm.
“We look forward to seeing how he can help develop and grow our teams and improve our already fantastic customer service,” said Fletcher.
The appointment comes shortly after Fletchers Solicitors recruited its 400th team member, as it continues with its ambitious plans to become a top 100 law firm by 2018.
