Three new Partners for Stephensons

Three new Partners for Stephensons

Stephensons is delighted to announce its most recent round of partner appointments.


The firm is welcoming family law specialist Paul Webb, medical negligence expert Claire Mooney and the head of legal expense insurance and new business Mark Fenning to the partnership this month. Each partner has developed a reputation as a leading professional in their respective area of work. 


Claire Mooney joined the firm in 2009, was appointed an associate in 2012 and is recognised by the Law Society's Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme. She has experience in a broad spectrum of medical negligence cases and is especially well regarded for her work on obstetric and birth injury claims.


Mark Fenning joined the firm in 2005 as a graduate paralegal in the commercial practice working on the Legal Advice Line for the Chamber of Commerce.  He qualified as a personal injury solicitor in 2009 and in 2012 relinquished fee earning duties to concentrate on a new business management role. Today, Mark heads up the firm's legal expense insurance and new business services.


Paul Webb joined the firm in 2002 as a graduate clerk and became a trainee in September 2003 doing seats in family, personal injury and conveyancing practices. He has been with the firm for more than a decade and worked from Manchester, Bolton and Altrincham offices within that period.  For the past two years he has been managing the firm’s family team at the Altrincham office. 


Chairwoman Ann Harrison said: “We are so pleased to welcome Paul, Claire and Mark to the partnership. All three have made significant contributions to their teams as well as the firm. I am also delighted to yet again see several of our past trainee solicitors rise to the partner status. Claire, Paul and Mark have been with the firm for many years, showing dedication and loyalty. The appointments are richly deserved”.
