Personal injury law firm Novum Law attracts more top talent as expansion continues

By Anita Jaynes on 28 September, 2016

Hot on the heels of this summer’s tranche of new recent appointments, leading specialist personal injury and medical negligence firm Novum Law has further strengthened its team with another key appointment as solicitor Catherine Donovan joins the business.

Catherine is the second new recruit to take up a position at the Swindon-based specialist personal injury team from New Law Solicitors in Bristol where she worked on a varied case load of personal injury cases. Prior to her role there, she worked at Goughs Solicitors in Chippenham.

She has several degrees under her belt having originally qualified as a solicitor in Uganda in 2000 before moving to the UK and studying to complete the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme to qualify as a solicitor in the UK in 2014. She also holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.

Catherine brings to Novum Law a wealth of legal experience having helped hundreds of clients secure compensation for their serious injuries sustained due to road traffic accidents, work-related incidents, industrial disease and clinical negligence.

In her new role at Novum Law, she will be responsible for helping clients secure high value compensation claims due to serious, life-changing injuries, including severe head injuries. She will work closely with director Huw Ponting and his expert team to build on Novum Law’s reputation as the ‘go-to’ firm for personal injury and medical negligence compensation claims.

Catherine said: “I am driven by trying to help people who have been injured in a serious accident through no fault of their own, to secure the best possible outcome so that they can rebuild their lives. Being in an accident and suffering severe injuries or a traumatic brain injury can have a devastating impact on people’s lives – not only physically but emotionally and financially. While we can’t take our clients’ suffering away, we can fight for justice for them to ensure they have access to the financial help and the care and support they need to move on and put their accident behind them.

“With its focus on complex, high value serious personal injury cases and its client care excellence, Novum Law was a natural choice for me when it came to my next career move and I am absolutely thrilled and excited to be joining the team at a time when the business is expanding so rapidly.

Commenting on Catherine’s appointment, Novum Law director Huw Ponting, added: “We are really pleased that Catherine has joined us. She will be a huge asset to our team and the wider firm and I am very much looking forward to working with her.”
