Hyphen Law has appointed Sally Calverley as its new Chief Executive.
Sally brings a wealth of expertise and experience from the legal sector where she has held senior positions at law firms including Carbon Law Partners, Bevan Brittan and Capsticks.
An experienced executive coach and business mentor, Sally is a founding partner of the highly successful management consultancy business, Richmonte Wells, which launched in 2010 to provide strategic advice to growing, ambitious businesses in the professional services sector. She has also held several directorships in the construction industry and leadership roles as a non-executive director and charity trustee.
Sally joins Hyphen Law at a pivotal time as the business consolidates its position as a specialist, Court of Protection law firm focusing on helping people who lack mental capacity to manage their property and affairs because of a brain injury or severe mental health difficulties.
Sally has ambitions to accelerate Hyphen Law’s growth. She will be working alongside the directors and senior management team to grow the business further.
Sally Calverley said:
“Our strength comes from our people and we have some of the best lawyers, paralegals and support staff in the business. From the outset, I’ve been impressed with the calibre of our staff, the willingness of everyone to get stuck in and do what they can to help vulnerable, injured, or sick people.
“Those who have been seriously harmed or injured and their families and carers need expert legal advice, reassurance and peace of mind.
“There’s a real commitment here to working together as a team and underlying it all, is the fact that our staff really care. It is this company culture that really sets Hyphen Law apart from other law firms.
“The business has huge potential for growth, and as we expand, we can help even more people. I am excited about working with our talented teams to really make a difference in our clients’ lives and help those who need our legal and financial advice and support."
Tim Robinson, Finance Director of Hyphen Law, welcomed Sally’s appointment.
“This is a vital time for the business as we look to continue our ambitious expansion plans in what is, a challenging market, particularly following the pandemic. But we have the experience, laser focus and talent to meet any challenges head-on and leverage new opportunities to strengthen and widen our service offering.
“The Board and our staff relish working with Sally to achieve our business goals in the ever-changing legal landscape.”
