Based in Manchester but operating nationally, Matthew’s appointment follows Simpson Millar’s recent acquisition of parts of south-west law firm Novum Law, which has strengthened its Serious Injury, Clinical Negligence, and Industrial Disease departments.

Last month the firm also announced the promotion 16 colleagues, including two new partners, four Senior Associates, and 10 Associates, reflecting its ongoing commitment to investing in its people.

Commenting on Matthew’s appointment Helen Melling, who oversees the firm’s expansive Injury division, including its clinical negligence, personal injury, catastrophic injury, industrial disease, travel, and military teams, said his ‘wealth of experience and his passion for securing the best outcome’ would prove invaluable to clients.

She added: “Matthew has a fantastic amount of experience within the personal injury field having worked on some of the most complex, high value cases on behalf of clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries through no fault of their own in recent years.

“The EL/PL department will benefit hugely from his legal expertise, as well as the operational and management skills that he has developed in his previous role as a Managing Partner.

“We are of course delighted to be welcoming him onboard and very much looking forward to working with him moving forward.”

Matthew added: “Through the work that we do, we have the privilege of helping clients achieve justice by securing the necessary compensation to put their lives back on track, something I have always been passionate about. Achieving the above alongside the need to handle cases efficiently because of fixed costs in the sector is a challenge we at Simpson Millar are well equipped to deal with.
