Hill Dickinson boosts PI with Clydes lateral

Clyde & Co has lost professional indemnity and product liability partner Angela Horne to north-west firm Hill Dickinson.

Horne was recently involved in a successful House of Lords appeal, on behalf of two members of the bar in the case of Medcalf v Mardell. During her time at Clydes she has also represented Dr Marietta Higgs, the paediatrician at the centre of the Cleveland Child Abuse Inquiry in 1987.

Horne, who will be based in Hill Dickinson’s London office, was at Clydes for 12 years. Commenting on her move she said: “Hill Dickinson is a rapidly expanding firm, and I was attracted by the scope and quality of work carried out in the professional services department.”
