Lancashire-based personal injury solicitors, Scott Rees & Co welcomed two new members to our firm. This is fantastic news as we continue to strive during the tough times in the legal industry.

One of the new recruits is a familiar face to the firm as fee earner, Helen Fletcher from Liverpool returns to Scott Rees & Co after an absence of six years where she worked for Liverpool-based solicitors, Carpenters.

The other new recruit, Solicitor John Ford from Bootle, joins the firm from Silverbeck Rymer Solicitors, where he has worked since his qualification in October 2012.

John hasn’t always been on the legal path though as he initially studied History, which he took as a degree at Liverpool John Moores University where he graduated in 2006.

But something about the legal industry stood out for John and he would later go on to complete his Graduate Diploma in Law, as well as his LP, at the College of Law in Chester, where he graduated in 2007 and 2008 respectively.

Scott Rees & Co Managing Partner, Royston Smith welcomed John and Helen to the firm, saying: “We are always keen to add new faces to the firm and we have high hopes that both Helen and John will go on to become valuable members of our team.

“Obviously this is not Helen’s first time working with us and the fact she has returned after a six year absence is testament to the great work we do in terms of investment in our staff and relationship building. We are delighted to have her back amongst our ranks and wish both her and John the best of luck with their futures at Scott Rees & Co.”

Scott Rees & Co have remained pro-active towards recruitment despite the pressures and restrictions brought in by the government imposed industry cuts, which have put so many firms under immense financial strain.

Their good work in terms of investment into the people that they work with has recently been recognised by the Investors in People, who confirmed that the firm had retained it’s gold standard status.
