Senior appointments for Ashtons Legal Personal Injury team
Ashtons Legal has made three senior appointments within its Personal Injury division. Hannah Clarke, Mick Upton and Sarah Barratt have all taken on new roles in the top tier regional team.
Hannah Clarke is the new head of group for Injury Services, taking overall responsibility for the Personal Injury, Medical Negligence and Court of Protection teams.
She specialises in catastrophic injury claims; in particular fatal incidents, amputations, spinal injuries, psychiatric injuries and traumatic brain injuries. She is accredited as a Fellow by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and is said to have a fantastic record in assisting seriously injured clients to get their lives back on track.
Ashtons also welcomes two new solicitors to its personal injury team. Mick Upton is the latest recruit and will be working as a senior associate. Upton is experienced in dealing with a wide range of serious injury claims including fatal accidents, brain, spinal and serious orthopaedic injuries.
He has built a reputation for investigating and relentlessly pursuing cases where liability is difficult to prove and bringing them to a successful conclusion.
Joining Mick in the team is Sarah Barratt who recently qualified as a solicitor having undertaken her training contract with the firm.
