Former Clitheroe Royal Grammar School student Kella Bowers has been promoted to partner at Forbes Solicitors, the firm where she began her career.
Kella, originally from Clitheroe and who now lives in Downham, is part of the large loss section within the insurance department. This handles complex claims of a high financial value.
Kella has more than 12 years’ experience in defendant insurer work and specialises in claims against social services departments.
As well as advising local authorities on their approach to these cases, she helps clients on responses to national media coverage in high-profile and sensitive cases.
Martin Crabtree, insurance department managing partner, said: “Kella is a real asset to the department and her promotion is fully deserved.”
