Becky Hill will manage the 43-strong team at our Nottingham office
A Nottingham-based law firm has brought in a new senior manager, with 14 years’ experience in the personal injury sector, to bolster the firm’s renowned legal support for those who have been unfairly injured or mistreated across the East Midlands.
Becky Hill, 38, has joined national social justice law firm Thompsons Solicitors, to manage the 43-strong team at its Nottingham office, supporting specialists dealing with claims for personal injury and employment issues.
"Thompsons Solicitors’ ethos of standing up for the mistreated is a natural fit.”
Mrs Hill worked at NatWest in customer service whilst training to be a lawyer. She was called to the Bar in 2005, after which she took on litigation roles in a number of law firms.
In 2010, she moved to the National Accident Helpline (NAH) and over 11 years worked her way up to operations director, a position she held from 2019. As well as managing NAH she was instrumental in setting up National Accident Law, which saw NAH managing its own personal injury cases rather than relying on outside law firms.
Commenting on her appointment, Mrs Hill said: “My parents instilled in me the importance of good values, and from my first job at NatWest to today, my motto has been ‘do the right thing’ – so working with colleagues to develop the next generation of talent has been my driver.”
Mrs Hill, who has several accreditations in people management and coaching, added: “Given that every legal role I have worked in has been focussed on improving access to legal support for those who need it, Thompsons Solicitors’ ethos of standing up for the mistreated is a natural fit.”
Clare Mellor, chief executive of Thompsons Solicitors, said: “Becky’s experience and qualifications in people management are both extensive and impressive and it is clear already that her values match those of Thompsons.
“2021 is Thompsons’ century year and, throughout that time, we have only ever acted for claimants and employees, never insurance companies or employers - achieving significant legal victories for working people.
“Despite this, the challenges keep coming. We look forward to the next 100 years of safeguarding and enhancing people’s legal rights, more important than ever in the context of Brexit and COVID-19, and Becky will be playing a key role in our meeting those challenges.”
