Horwich Cohen Coghlan (HCC), the Manchester-based law firm, is poised for growth with the appointment of senior lawyers in the city who specialise in serious injury cases.
The personal injury firm, which already employs more than 250 people at its headquarters in Castlefield has appointed Martin James as its new chief operating officer. Martin qualified in 2003 and joins from Slater & Gordon where he was the National Head of Serious Injury. Before that he was an equity partner at Fentons.
He joins ex-Slater & Gordon serious injury specialist Patricia Noone who brings more than 20 years of experience to the serious injury team.
HCC pioneered a Major Trauma service that launched in 2017, which supports people who have been treated under the NHS Major Trauma pathway. The service, led by partner Mike Molloy, places greater emphasis on rehabilitation for clients who have been seriously injured.
David Horwich, director of Horwich Cohen Coghlan, said:
“Martin and Patricia are both experienced and highly respected specialists in the field of catastrophic and serious injury, and we are delighted that they have agreed to join HCC in two senior leadership roles.
“Not only have Martin and Patricia got the legal skills and commercial acumen to make a positive impact they are also popular and respected by our existing team of experienced lawyers who have already got to know them well.
“We will continue to invest in new people and we are also looking at other cities in the UK to expand our presence geographically. We are in a really good place to manage and adapt to changes and challenges in the wider personal injury marketplace.”
Martin James, chief operating officer at Horwich Cohen Coghlan, said:
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with the team and continue to grow and develop our client base. I will work with the serious injury team to maintain the emphasis on ensuring that victims of life changing catastrophic and serious injuries get the support, rehabilitation and compensation they deserve.”
