Slater and Gordon welcomes leading serious injury duo, John Davis and Kate Nicklin

Leading serious injury duo, Kate and John, join our serious injury team as we expand our specialist injury services.

16 April 2021

Newsroom - Kate Nicklin and John Davis

We're extremely pleased to announce the appointment of two leading lawyers to our serious injury team as we continue to expand specialist injury services.

John Davis and Kate Nicklin, who have more than 50 years’ combined experience helping people who've sustained a range of injuries, particularly brain and spinal cord injuries, join us from Newcastle-based Sintons Law Solicitors.

The pair work out of Slater and Gordon’s Manchester office as well as new base in Rotterdam House in Newcastle city centre to support clients in and around the North East region.

Consulting principal lawyer John, who was awarded an MBE in 2013 for work with a charity which supports brain injured children, said: “Slater and Gordon shares our vision of providing expertise for people with specialist needs.

Brain injury cases in particular can be extremely complex because the severity and extent of injuries aren’t always initially clear, so experience and insight are so important to achieving the best possible outcome for clients.

Kate and I have worked closely for more than 10 years and have built up a real depth of experience and complementary skills working with brain and spinal injury survivors, so it’s great that we are able to continue that work at Slater and Gordon.”

Senior associate Kate, said: “We are working with people during a really difficult time in their life. What they need is experts around them to ensure they get the help they need so they can begin rebuilding their lives. I really love being able to play a part in delivering a positive result for clients – it’s great to be able to make a difference to someone’s life.

Slater and Gordon has an excellent reputation for having talented and specialist lawyers who work in an innovative and collaborative environment, so joining the business was a fantastic opportunity. There’s also a commitment to growing and expanding these specialist services for injured individuals.”

Madelene Holdsworth, senior practice director said: “We’re delighted to welcome two very accomplished and experienced lawyers to our growing team. Kate and John have worked on complex, difficult and demanding cases and bring with them extensive knowledge in securing the best result for clients. They are joining our specialist serious injury team, which helps people who have suffered very serious injury and require expert support and guidance.

We’re committed to building the leading team of legal minds to ensure people who need help following a serious accident or injury get the help they need."

Slater and Gordon are expanding our specialist injury services with a string of high profile hires of leading lawyers in the field. Last month, Ben Gent joined from Express Solicitors, to become interim head of medical negligence in the North West.
