Senior appointments at law firm

Flint Bishop has brought on board two experienced lawyers in the same month as opening its first Birmingham office.

Simon Brian and Nigel Partridge both join the firm as partners in the employment and insurance litigation teams respectively.

Joining from Capsticks Solicitors in Leeds, Simon brings with him over 15 years’ post-qualification experience as an employment solicitor in both contentious and non-contentious matters, including 11 years at partner level. He also headed up employment teams at Capsticks and Taylor & Emmet.

Nigel joins the partnership with over 25 years’ insurance litigation experience. Having previously worked at personal injury law firms including Lyons Davidson, Morris Orman Hearle and Plexus Law, he has amassed a wealth of expertise acting in relation to high value casualty, motor and property claims.

Flint Bishop chief executive Qamer Ghafoor said: “Simon and Nigel are excellent additions to the partnership and their respective teams. Their arrival reflects a period of expansion across the firm as we continue to invest in our employees and the services we provide to our clients."

Partners Raj Sumal and Lorna Trueman have also been promoted. Raj formally takes over as head of insurance litigation, with Lorna officially taking the reins as commercial dispute resolution head.

Qamer, who previously oversaw these teams, will now concentrate on developing the firm’s strategic plans and delivering significant further growth across all practice areas.
