Fletchers Solicitors


Chief Legal Officer


Adrian joined Fletchers in 2011 to head up the large Serious Injury Team. Prior to that, he had worked for 12 years at a specialist firm of catastrophic injury solicitors, Serious Law, developing and honing his skills in the complex field of maximum severity injury claims. He has settled some of the largest cases in the country involving damages in excess of £10m. Many of his cases have had significant regional and national media and press exposure. He has won complex, catastrophic injury cases at Trial and succeeded in various interlocutory matters, which have had significant, long term and wider implications in his field.

In his time at Fletchers, Adrian has seen the serious department grow significantly. Not only has it won many major cases under his tenure but also some major awards too, one example being Outstanding Case of the Year at the Personal Injury Awards in 2012.  Adrian has recently been named as one of the Top 10 Leading Individuals in the North West for Personal Injury by the Legal 500 for the second consecutive year, and was described as ‘brilliant for spinal injury work and an established heavyweight in the claimant personal injury world’.

In spring 2017, Adrian was appointed our Chief Legal Officer and now oversees all of our legal teams, ensuring our customers are always at the heart of everything we do.

As Chief Legal Officer at Fletchers Solicitors, Adrian is responsible for all of our legal teams including one of the largest and busiest serious injury teams in the country. He has significant experience of running full and complex caseload of maximum severity cases (predominantly brain and spinal cord injury resulting from all types of accidents).

He is also responsible for the in-house Court of Protection Team, which provides specialist support and assistance to clients who lack mental capacity to manage their own property and financial affairs.
