Lynne Bradey, partner at Wrigleys, welcomed Hywel Jenkins as he joined the health and care team in Sheffield.
Hywel, who is from Sheffield, qualified as a solicitor in 1996 and has spent the majority of his career in the Yorkshire region. His legal career has covered many different areas of both private and public practice including representing vulnerable children and adults within the local authority and private sector.
Hywel says "Wrigleys is a leading law firm for injured, disabled and vulnerable people nationally and has an incredible reputation. I look forward very much to working with colleagues to assist in the high level of work the team have developed and those clients we are supporting."
Austin Thornton who manages the health & care team said: "Hywel has a great reputation in Court of Protection work from his previous work for a local authority which strengthens the abilities of our team in this complex area of legal work. His arrival will ensure that we can continue to meet the needs of elderly and disabled people and their loved ones for advice and representation on health and care matters at a time when funding pressures on local and health authorities have given rise to a great need for this service."
