Bridge McFarland announce partnership promotion for personal injury specialist
“ Promotion to partner level is a huge achievement which demonstrates the hard work and dedication that James has shown in his short time at Bridge McFarland. ”

Leading regional law firm Bridge McFarland have announced the promotion to Partner of a specialist personal injury solicitor less than two years after he joined the firm.

James Burrell, who is Hull born and bred, specialises in high value cases, often in excess of £1 million. His work includes cases involving brain injury, amputation, complex regional pain syndrome, paralysis, spinal cord injury, serious orthopaedic injury and significant psychological disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder.

James entered the legal profession after gaining his degree at the University of Hull and then securing a postgraduate diploma at the College of Law in York. He has worked in Hull and the wider East Yorkshire area since 2005, and joined Bridge McFarland from Hudgell Solicitors in autumn 2015.

Bridge McFarland has offices throughout Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Last year the firm was ranked third in the Legal 500 in the East Midlands area for its personal injury work for claimants. There were individual recommendations for Kathryn Hudson, a personal injury specialist, Leanne Keating, who heads the department, and for James.

The firm has experience in dealing with many work-related matters including asbestos claims and vibration white finger. Its caseload also includes accidents at sea and in the air, as well as defective product claims.

James said: “I am delighted and humbled to have the opportunity to join the partnership at Bridge McFarland. The firm has a growing reputation in Hull for its caring client service and expertise, something which was recently recognised in the Legal 500, and I am delighted to say that I am part of such a highly regarded law firm.”

Leanne Keating, Partner and Head of Personal Injury at Bridge McFarland, said: “Promotion to partner level is a huge achievement which demonstrates the hard work and dedication that James has shown in his short time at Bridge McFarland. James’ knowledge in the area of personal injury is a huge asset to the firm and we are delighted to welcome him to the partnership.”
