BL Claims Solicitors has promoted two of its staff.

Joanna Burkhart, who specialises in clinical negligence cases, becomes a senior solicitor, while Lauren Haas, from the firm’s travel claims division, is promoted to associate.

Both are based at the firm’s offices in Southampton and cover the Solent area.

Dr John White, head of BL Claims Solicitors, said: ‘These promotions are richly-deserved and reflect the focus that we place on developing the talent within our firm.

‘I wish Joanna and Lauren the greatest of success in their new roles.’

It has 50 staff and is recruiting teams of lawyers as part of its growth strategy.
