One of our former trainee solicitors has been made a partner as one of a trio of promotions at the business this year, as well as recognition for one of our high-respected rehabilitation and support team.

All three promoted colleagues begin their new roles this week, following a year in which we’ve also added new offices in Warwick to our existing base in Cheadle after signing new, long-term contracts with work sources in the Midlands and the Thames Valley.

Richard Clark, CEO, hailed the promotions as recognition for the trio’s contributions to CFG’s continued expansion and to the emphasis the business places on helping colleagues develop their careers.

Solicitor Michelle Cresswell becomes a partner just over 16 years after she first joined us as a trainee in 2007. During her career, she has developed a strong reputation for supporting people after life-changing injuries to claim compensation, including brain injuries, spinal injuries and other serious injuries.

Michelle is joined in the 2024 promotions round by Caroline Trinder, a former nurse who heads up our market-leading rehabilitation and support service for those affected by serious injury and their families.

Caroline, who becomes a senior associate, joined CFG in 2021 and is another who has developed her career with us, taking a lead role in shaping our respected client service programme which ensures clients receive the utmost care and support during their recovery, accessing the specialist treatment and rehabilitation they need at the earliest opportunity.

Rounding off the promotions round is people and culture advisor Jessica Jones, who becomes an associate after playing a key role in helping the business recruit the new people it needs to support our expanding new business instructions. Jessica also plays an important role in our learning and development programme for colleagues and is another who has benefitted from the firm’s focus on developing careers during close to six years with CFG.

CFG CEO Richard Clark said: “It’s always great to see our colleagues continuing to grow at CFG and it’s fantastic news for Michelle, Caroline and Jessica. All three play key roles in the business and the success we’ve seen over the last few years.

“Whether that’s providing expert legal advice to injured people and their families, guiding them to access the very best rehabilitation and treatment immediately, or ensuring CFG is a great place to work with opportunities for learning and development and attracting the very best people to work with us, it’s the strength of the entire team that makes CFG successful.

“With our focus on learning and development and helping colleagues advance their careers, we take great pride in seeing our people progress to more senior roles in the business.”
