Hilary Meredith Solicitors to train firm’s first in-house counsel

Hilary Meredith Solicitors has been approved by the Bar Council to appoint and train a pupil with a view to her becoming the firm’s first in-house counsel.

Henrietta Hughes, who was called to the Bar in 2012, has previously worked as a legal assistant to a QC and senior junior at Outer Temple Chambers and Temple Garden Chambers. She said that working with a legal team that was endeavouring to secure accident victims the best quality of life was “an incredible opportunity”.

“Hilary Meredith Solicitors appeals to me for a number of reasons,” said Hughes.

“The work is of the highest quality; there is a real range including everything from industrial disease to clinical negligence. In particular, the firm is instructed in a number of personal injury cases involving injured servicemen and women.”

Hilary Meredith, CEO at Hilary Meredith Solicitors said that Hughes’ appointment was an indication of the high value and complex nature of the serious injury claims that the firm was being instructed on.
