Kate, who shares her time between the firm's Sheffield and Doncaster offices, said: It is a privilege to work within our highly regarded clinical negligence team. I particularlyenjoy the opportunity to help a wide range of clients with a variety of cases. Owen joined the firm in 2010 after working with legal practices in London and Manchester.

The firm has also expanded its clinical negligence department in Sheffield with the appointment of solicitor Lucy Garnham. Qualifying in 2010 and with experience as a paralegal in regional offices of a major national firm, Lucy will play a significant role at hlwKeebleHawson. Managing Partner Paul Trudgill said: Our specialist teams have acted for claimants in a number of high profile cases across a range of personal injury and negligence disciplines. Owen and Kate have each made a real impact through their hard work and expertise, and we are delighted to move them up to the next level. We also warmly welcome Lucy to hlwKeebleHawson and I am sure she will quickly become a valued member of the team. For information on hlwKeebleHawson visit
