In 1987, Rob Fletcher decided to follow his passion and formed a new legal firm that specialised in litigation and, in particular, personal injury litigation working to protect the rights of injured accident victims. In November 1987, Fletchers Solicitors was created with nine members of staff. Combined with Rob’s passion for motorcycling and his championing of the victims of motorbike accidents, we cemented our reputation as the go-to firm for any form of serious injury in a very short period of time.
We quickly built up an enviable reputation for being one of the best, most caring companies within the personal injury field and chose to create a third core area to specialise in – medical negligence. The department grew rapidly and is staffed by some of the best legal minds in the business; its reputation is now one of the best in the field. Today, Fletchers Solicitors has over 400 team members, based across two sites, our headquarters in Southport and ‘The 15th Floor’ in Manchester.
We were the only UK law firm listed in both The Sunday Times Top 100 Places to Work and the Guardian Great Places to Work in 2017. Although we have changed and grown substantially over the years, one thing has remained constant – the determination to do the best for victims of motorbike accidents, serious injury and medical negligence. Putting our customers at the heart of everything we do is what has kept Fletchers out in front since its inception and it’s what will keep us there for the foreseeable future.
