Top London law firm Hodge Jones & Allen has strengthened its industry leading personal injury team with the acquisition of solicitors Emma Hall and Steven Violet.
Steven becomes a part of HJA after nearly seven years at Silverbeck Rymer Solicitors. He brings with him wide ranging expertise in advocacy, upcoming limitation, niche claims and the new portal process and fixed recoverable costs regime. Prior to Silverbeck Rymer, Steven trained and qualified at Pinto Potts, where he held the role of team leader in the financial mis-selling department.
Emma joins the firm from Universa Law Solicitors, where she gained extensive litigation experience in occupational disease, occupiers’ liability, employers’ liability and public liability matters. Emma originally qualified with Blaser Mills, where she specialised in personal injury.
Steven and Emma will primarily focus on employers’ liability and occupiers’ liability claims following an ongoing increase of HJA’s work in these key practice areas.
Anne Sanders, Partner and Head of Personal Injury, commented:
“This addition of new talent comes at a time of significant growth for the firm. Emma and Steven are both impressive litigators and their appointments are further evidence that our personal injury practice is going from strength to strength. We very much look forward working with them.”
