She will work alongside partners and the management team to further develop the business in the South West and South of England, Wales and beyond.
Managing Director of Novum Law and Hyphen Law, Sally Calverley, said:
“Our strength comes from our people and we have some of the best lawyers, paralegals and support staff in the industry. From the start, I was impressed by the caliber of our staff, the willingness of everyone to get involved and do what they can to help those who are vulnerable, injured or sick.
“Those who have been injured or harmed through negligence or who have lost loved ones due to the actions of others deserve access to justice. They need expert legal advice and the insurance and peace of mind that they won’t have to struggle to get needed medical care, rehabilitation or financial support.
“There is a real commitment here to working together as a team and underlying it all is the fact that our people really care. It is this corporate culture that really sets Novum Law and Hyphen apart. Law from other law firms.
“The business has huge potential for growth and as we grow we can help even more people get their lives and their families back on track. I am delighted to work with our talented teams to truly make a difference in the lives of our clients and help those who need our legal and financial advice and support.
Tim Robinson, chief financial officer of Novum Law and Hyphen Law, welcomed Sally’s appointment. “This is a vital time for the business as we seek to pursue our ambitious expansion plans in what is, for all personal injury and medical negligence law firms, a challenging market, especially especially after the pandemic. But we have the experience, focus and talent to meet any challenge and take advantage of new opportunities to strengthen and expand our service offering.
“The Board and our staff appreciate working with Sally to achieve our business goals in an ever-changing legal landscape.”
