Leading debt recovery team grows by six new starters

A series of new appointments have been made within the industry-leading debt recovery team at national law firm Clarke Willmott LLP.

The Taunton-based team, jointly led by Phil Roberts and Kat Quinton, has made five new appointments with another starting in January and a further three team members currently being recruited.

Simon Little joins the debt recovery team as Insurance Team Supervisor, Ruth Horner joins as a cashier while Phoebe Simpson, Matilda Jeans and Tyler Caddy all joins as paralegals.

Ryan Rahim will also join the team in January working on defended insurance.

Two more paralegals and an apprentice administrative assistant are also being recruited to help with debt recovery demand, bringing the total team members up to 44 specialist lawyers, caseworkers and support staff.

“Our team continues to go from strength to strength,” said Anna O’Reilly, debt recovery team manager and responsible for recruitment and staff welfare.

“The new joiners reflect the growth in business with new instructions from both new and existing clients and will help Clarke Wilmott to maintain its position at the forefront of the debt recovery industry.

“The new appointees will help to manage the team’s increasing workload for a variety of clients including regional and national commercial businesses, government departments, insurance companies and managing agents,” added Anna.

“Debt recovery is one of Clarke Willmott’s largest teams and plays an important role in the overall success of the company.”

The team is ranked in the Top Tier of Legal 500 and has recovered over £200 million for clients in the last ten years.
