Langleys Solicitors announces two new promotions starts 2022 with a bang

Langleys Solicitors, the Lincoln-based commercial and private client law firm has promoted Helen Murphy to Partner, and James Spittlehouse to Senior Associate, as it recognises the continued dedication of its staff.

With 24 years spent working at Langleys, Helen has vast experience in dealing with personal injury cases, primarily accidents for people who have suffered from serious injuries, catastrophic injuries or fatalities and clinical negligence claims for people who have suffered harm due to negligent treatment. Whilst her practice has straddled these areas, in recent years her interest has focused on people who have suffered life-changing injuries.  For many years, Helen has been a trustee/volunteer for Headway Lincolnshire who are a registered charity who provide support for people who have suffered from brain injuries and their families and carers. Helen has successfully litigated cases to trial and has recently concluded a claim for a client who had suffered from a serious brain injury and was awarded compensation of over £2,000,000.

In her new role as Partner, Helen will continue with her diverse caseload and will continue to lead the Serious Injury Department. Helen is a member of the Law Society Personal Accreditation Scheme and is classed as a Senior Litigator by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. Helen says that “helping an injured person is not just about getting any compensation they deserve; it is also about supporting them through what can be a long and difficult process”.

As Partner Helen will continue to grow and expand the Serious Injury Team.

Alongside Helen’s appointment, Langleys has also promoted James Spittlehouse to senior associate after joining the firm in 2012. Since then, James has worked within the property team at Langleys and has been busy building up a reputation as a safe pair of hands for complicated and high value land and commercial property deals.

Tim Cross, senior partner at Langleys ,said: “Both Helen and James are real assets to the team here at Langleys and these promotions are thoroughly well-deserved.

“Despite the challenges of the pandemic, both Helen and James have worked tirelessly to support our clients and achieve the very best results on their behalf.

“In Helen’s role as partner, she will be integral in the future of the serious injury team here at Langleys and will be instrumental in furthering our reputation across the industry and region. James also brings this same quality and in his new role as senior associate, I am confident that he will continue to help our clients navigate their challenges and achieve the best outcomes possible.”
