Express Solicitors post its most successful year to date and continue its growth strategy with announcement of senior appointments

Carlos Lopez appointed as head of clinical negligence team, is joined by new partners Damian Bradley and Jon Andrews as the firm aims for £45m turnover in five years

Manchester-based personal injury law firm, Express Solicitors, has appointed Carlos Lopez as its newest partner and head of its clinical negligence department.

Lopez, a dual qualified solicitor and barrister, is one of only a few practitioners in the North West to hold accreditations for both clinical negligence and personal injury with the Law Society. He is also an assessor for the Law Society Clinical Negligence panel, as well as a Trustee for Headway, Central Lancashire. With 26 years’ experience in clinical negligence work, Carlos has acted for thousands of clients in a variety of work including cases of maximum severity.

Express Solicitors has also appointed partner Damian Bradley as head of legal operations; he will work directly with managing partner, James Maxey, on the strategic expansion of the firm’s serious injury offering. Jon Andrews also joins the firm as an employers’ liability partner, acting for victims and their families following serious and fatal accidents at work, as well as those with occupational diseases.

The appointments have been made possible thanks to a revolving credit agreement with The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) worth £8m. The funding is being used to help the firm’s ambition of gaining an even greater share of the market and, as part of its growth strategy, Express Solicitors will make further senior hires during the next quarter.

In September 2021, Express Solicitors Group announced its best ever financial results to date, with group turnover up by 14% to £31.3m and caseloads growing by 36% to 19,015.

Express Solicitors Group confirmed even stronger financial results in its statutory accounts filed with Companies House in March 2022, with group turnover up to £32.1m. It aims to reach a turnover of £45m within the next five years.

Express Solicitors’ managing partner, James Maxey said: “Thanks to our £8 million funding support from RBS, we’ve been able to plough ahead with our ambitious growth plans and appoint new partners to drive the business forward. Having a partner of Carlos’s stature on board, with Law Society accreditations, is just what we need to help us see our plans to fruition.”

Express Solicitors’ head of clinical negligence, Carlos Lopez added: “It’s fantastic to be joining a firm that is totally dedicated to personal injury and clinical negligence, and to grow a specialist team that uses its expertise and compassion to get justice for those who’ve received substandard medical treatment.”

Express Solicitors has 403 employees, including 36 partners, and is ranked in The Lawyer Top 200. Its lawyers and the firm are recognised in The Legal 500 and the firm is noted in Chambers and Partners. Express Solicitors specialises in personal injury and accident claims, clinical negligence claims and serious injury cases.
