Hudgell Solicitors is delighted to announce the appointment of highly-experienced clinical negligence specialist Rosamund Rhodes-Kemp.
A specialist in tackling complex cerebral palsy cases, claims involving children, failures in care of the elderly and spinal injury cases, Mrs Rhodes-Kemp will head up our London office.
Her experience in leading legal teams, implementing change and restructuring departments has led to her being a highly-sought after specialist in claimant clinical negligence.
She has also taken a particular interest in representing families at Inquests, leading to her recent appointment as Assistant Coroner at Oxford.
Not only has Mrs Rhodes-Kemp acted for private clients, but also for Trade Union Membership Organisations. She also qualified and worked as a state registered nurse for six years before entering the legal profession.
Neil Hudgell, managing director of Hudgell Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to have Rosamund leading our clinical negligence and personal injury teams in London.
“She has vast experience in building and heading highly successful departments which deliver superb results.
“It has always been our vision to expand our London operation having moved into the capital two years ago, and with Rosamund now at the helm, leading our highly-skilled and experienced team, we are confident of meeting those goals.”
Mrs Rhodes-Kemp says the ‘fantastic skills and expertise’ at the company will ensure the firm increases its presence and profile in the capital.
She said: “This is an exciting opportunity for me and one I was delighted to take on. The ambition of the firm is very clear, and it is refreshing and exciting to be joining a firm which is investing ambitiously in growing its clinical negligence department, particularly in London, whilst many others have reduced their focus on this important area in recent years.
“There is such a wide range of skills in the team here, not only in clinical negligence and personal injury expertise, but also in representing families at Inquests and handling cases of abuse. That makes it so much easier when looking to develop, expand and grow.
“What impresses me greatly about Hudgell Solicitors is that they are a team that cares and is determined to succeed, like I am, by putting client care at the forefront of all that we do.
“That is the most important thing, you have to deliver for your clients. You need to have empathy, kindness and compassion, as you’ll be judged just as much on that as you are on your final settlements.”
