LEADING serious injury business CFG Law announces the recruitment of three new members of its team, including two partners, and the launch of a new Court of Protection team in the latest stage of its expansion plans.

The news is the latest advance for CFG, which has agreed new partnerships with core charities, promoted three members of the team and successfully concluded its Investors in People accreditation process, securing the Gold standard, since moving to a 100% digital working model two months ago.

Experienced Court of Protection specialist David Hilton joins CFG on June 8 to launch a new private client team for the business, adding to the well-respected existing legal services supporting people who have sustained brain and spinal cord injuries.

David, who joins from Bromleys as a partner, will use his experience in Court of Protection, deputyship and power of attorney work to build a private client team at CFG to offer further services to its existing and new clients and their families.

He will be joined at CFG by specialist serious injury solicitor Matthew Evans, who also joins as a partner, from GLP. Matthew, an APIL accredited Senior Litigator, brings experience from a 22-year legal career to date in handling complex brain injury and fatality cases, as well as a significant track record in criminal injuries cases.

The trio of new recruits is completed by associate solicitor Phil Cooper, who joined the business this month from Slater and Gordon, one of more than 30 recruits to have become part of the growing CFG team in the past 12 months.

Richard Clark, CEO of CFG Law, said: “This is more positive news for us and a clear statement of our intent to keep on growing and developing our business during these extraordinary times in which we currently find ourselves.

“Bringing David to our business will enable us to help more people affected by injury and offer a broader range of services. Our new private client service, including Court of Protection experience, is something our clients and core partners will benefit from and will augment our award-winning Client First Service.”

He added: “The current climate is challenging for all businesses but we see a number of opportunities arising for us in the coming weeks and David, Matt and Phil will have a key role to play in helping us meet the increasing demand for our services.”

David said: “CFG is a firm which shares my values and belief in client service and this is a great opportunity to build a new team in an exciting business committed to doing things differently and helping those affected by brain and spinal injury.”

Matthew said: “I’m delighted to be joining CFG, which is a business notable for the different way it supports seriously injured people and their families. I’m really looking forward to adding my experience to the depth of talent and knowledge already within the team.”

As well as achieving Gold standard accreditation from Investors in People in April, along with a health and wellbeing accreditation, CFG has recruited more than 30 people in the past 12 months driven a rise in new business, as well as opening its second office in Spring Gardens in Manchester city centre, adding to its first office in Cheadle.

It was named the PI Team of the Year for the second year running at the Manchester Legal Awards win in 2019 and 2020. It was also named as the winner of the Law Society’s Legal Excellence Award for Client Service Excellence in October and was awarded the Spinal Injuries Association’s Torch Trophy for its work with the charity last July.
