We are delighted to announce that on 1st October 2016 specialist claims Solicitor Sarah Tipton Walker was appointed as a director of the firm.

Sarah is the 19th director to be appointed at Switalskis, joining a leadership team comprising of 18 other directors drawn from the wide range of legal departments at the firm. She is also the 11th female director, highlighting the trend at Switalskis for nurturing and promoting female legal talent.

Sarah sits within the Clinical Negligence department, which is based at Switalskis Huddersfield office.

Suzanne Munroe, Director & Head of Clinical Negligence at Switalskis, said: “Sarah is a lawyer who always puts her clients first. She is truly brilliant at finding a way through the most difficult of cases to ensure her clients get a result and a real chance at improving their quality of life.

“She is a true asset to the business and I am thrilled to have her at my side to lead this excellent team of specialist lawyers.”

As a lawyer who is recognised in her own right both regionally and nationally, Sarah is ranked as a leading individual in The Legal 500 UK guide to the legal profession, where she is praised for ‘really fighting for her clients’. Whilst Sarah deals with a wide variety of Clinical Negligence cases, she has a particular interest in nerve injury and brain injury claims.
