Personal injury solicitor Scott Rees & Co are continuing to flourish as they announce the appointment of ten new trainee paralegals last month in what are tricky times for the industry as a whole.
Whereas many firms from within the personal injury sector have struggled to come to terms with the changes to the way the claims system works, Scott Rees has continually adapted to change and their pro-activity in the build up to the Jackson Reforms, and LASPO, has allowed them to continue to offer new training contracts to up-and-coming legal professionals.

Since April the firm has welcomed more than 20 new trainees to the firm, at a time when others have been forced to cut back and Managing Partner, Royston Smith, puts this down to the firm’s pro-activity and positivity.
He said: “We are pleased to be in the position to continuously strengthen our team here at Scott Rees and that is down to our patience when it came to preparing for the industry reforms.
“I have said previously that in these times of change there is also a time to develop and we have done that within the new marketing initiatives we have implemented to ensure Scott Rees & Co can continue to operate as personal injury specialists. Of course this type of development creates new roles for staff and therefore vacancies for us to recruit for, so we are extremely pleased that the fact we remained positive and pro-active in a time of uncertainly has paid off.
“We pride ourselves on the training and employment opportunities that we can offer legal professionals coming into our firm. Whether they are trainees like the ten we have just taken on, or more established solicitors and legal executives, we try and offer the best possible working environment for all of our staff.”
