Firm Appoints Negligence Solicitor from a City Rival; A Round Up of News from the Region's Legal Sector in the Past Week


A solicitor has joined the Birmingham clinical negligence team of a Midlands' law firm.

Pamela Katsionis joins Challinors, from Davies & Partners Solicitors in Birmingham.

With extensive experience of nerve damage, orthopaedic and delay in diagnosis clinical negligence cases, Ms Katsionis has seven years PQE and completed her training at Birmingham Law School, qualifying at Davies & Partners in 2005.

Challinors' clinical negligence team head and partner Richard Bannister said: "Pamela's appointment reinforces the team's position as one of the Midlands' leading clinical negligence teams.

"We have seen our case load increase over the last 12 months and have added to the team with three hires in the last few months. The team now has an excellent balance of expertise and skills and the right resource for our growing volume of instructions."

Experts advise university merger Legal experts from the Birmingham office of an international law firm have advised on the merging of two Royal Charter universities.

Members of the Pinsent Masons universities group advised the School of Pharmacy and UCL (University College London).

UCL is London's global university, with students from nearly 140 countries and 21 Nobel prize winners to its credit.

The School of Pharmacy is also world leading in its field, and the merger has been led by an exciting vision to push forward the boundaries of science and benefit patients through innovation in treatment and care.

The merger of the two universities means the School of Pharmacy now forms part of the UCL Faculty of Life Sciences and is now known as the UCL School of Pharmacy.

It will continue to provide undergraduate and postgraduate education in pharmaceutical science and offers a research facility which focuses on advancing medicines and healthcare.

The Pinsent Masons team was led by Birmingham-based head of the universities group Nicola Hart and senior associate Gayle Ditchburn, assisted by Danielle Clifford.

Ms Hart said "We are delighted to have advised on this transaction. The team delivered a timely result within a challenging regulatory framework."

Expansion at Eversheds The Birmingham office of an international law firm has expanded its pensions practice with the appointment of two new partners.

Emma King and Sarah Franklin both join Eversheds from Squires Sanders where Ms King held the position of Birmingham head of pensions.

She has a dual practice in non-contentious and pensions litigation and sits on the Association of Pension Lawyers (APL) litigation committee and the Midlands APL committee.

Ms Franklin has more than 20 years of experience in pensions law and specialises in defined benefit pension arrangements.

Ingrid Everson, Birmingham head of pensions, said: "Our pensions team has gone from strength to strength in recent months and the appointment of Emma and Sarah follow that of another leading pensions partner, formerly international head of pensions at Squires, Franois Barker. The new partners will be a welcomed asset in our busy and dynamic pensions practice."

Firm advises growth fund investment Corporate experts from an international law firm with its head office in Birmingham have advised new client Business Growth Fund (BGF) on its pounds 10 million equity growth capital investment into independent telecommunications and data services business GCI Telecom Group.

The deal was Wragge & Co's first instruction for the fund and marks the fourth and largest investment to date by BGF, and its first in the Midlands.
