Five is the magic number as Swindon personal injury law firm Novum Law expands

By Anita Jaynes on 17 August, 2016

Novum Law, the specialist personal injury law firm headquartered in Swindon, has appointed five new solicitors as part of its expansion as demand for its expert legal services for claimants grows.  This is the highest number of new solicitor appointments at the firm since 2014 and reflects the ongoing success of the business.

Two of the new recruits will be based at the firm’s headquarters at Greenbridge, Swindon. Nayo Kirkpatrick joins from New Law Solicitors in Bristol, where he worked on serious personal injury cases gaining valuable experience in claimant litigation. Nayo, who qualified as a solicitor in 2012, will specialise in high value serious personal injury and head injury compensation claims, reporting to Director Anna Cole.

Rebecca Max joins the Swindon team from Simpson Millar in Bristol where she gained valuable experience in clinical negligence cases. A newly qualified solicitor, she will work alongside Novum Law Director Huw Ponting and his expert team of solicitors on complex personal injury and traumatic brain injury cases.

Both Nayo and Rebecca are committed to helping clients and their families in Swindon and throughout the country navigate their way through the compensation process and helping to achieve the very best possible outcomes for people who have sustained serious, life-changing injuries through no fault of their own.

Three other Novum Law offices also have new recruits. Emma Harman joins Novum Law’s new Southampton office which specialises in helping people affected by asbestos-related illnesses, Alexandra Moore joins Novum Law’s growing Isle of Wight-based team and Jessica Ryan has been appointed to Novum Law’s Salisbury office where she will handle complex serious injury and medical negligence cases.

Chief Executive of Novum Law Thomas Sheppard said: “Our business model is built on giving our clients a solicitor-led personal service and we need good people to grow our business. These five new recruits will allow us to continue to grow our reputation as a specialist in personal injury, medical negligence and asbestos-related disease work.

“In a sector where there is considerable pessimism, we are committed to attracting and retaining talented solicitors who can really make a difference for our clients and at the same time build an interesting and rewarding career for themselves. I’m very much looking forward to seeing Nayo, Rebecca, Emma, Alexandra and Jessica working in their new teams.”
