DBS celebrated two members’ of staff reaching ten years with the company this month.
Vicky Blodwell, head of Personal Injury at the firm, and Rupy Sandhu, a team leader within that department, have been with the company since 2007.
Both trained to become solicitors at DBS, working their way to Assistant Solicitor and subsequently Senior Lawyers, to their respective titles, which they have since held for a number of years, between them successfully claiming millions in compensation for their clients in that time.
The firm marked the occasion with a gift presentation in the office alongside speeches by Directors and from those within the personal injury department, speaking mainly on the themes of commitment, dedication, and durability; facets that underpin their approach to a career in the personal injury department.
Commitment and dedication in an ever-changing legal sector
The milestone achievement for the pair comes as more changes to the personal injury legal sector are forthcoming, with rises to the small claims limit and the Ogden rate U-turn adding pressure across the sector.
On the landmark month of staff anniversaries, Chairman, Davinder Bal, said: “Ten years of dedication and commitment to personal injury clients is incredible in an environment of constant change and challenge in the personal injury sector.”
“Vicky and Rupy have both been true role models for the firm, with client care and team development at the heart of everything they do, able to take in their stride all the changes in the sector.”
Vicky Blodwell said: “Ten years is a particular milestone to have reached and I am fortunate to have worked with a supportive team which has made them so enjoyable. Thank you to everyone I have worked with during that time and particularly to the clients who have always provided me with such a strong focus.”
