Rachel Floyd - Management
I graduated from Northumbria University with a first class LLB (Hons) Exempting degree, which incorporated the Legal Practice Course. To further my interest in business I completed an MSc in Business with Legal Management. During my time on the Masters I worked with Ben Hoare Bell on a marketing project for the Personal Injury department.
I work within a varied business and management role. This includes working on all aspects of marketing in the firm, human resource management, procurement and IT.
During 2015 I completed the LAPG Certificate in Practice Management. This included 60 hours of dedicated specialist management training.
In September 2017 I began a Period of Recognised Training in order to qualify as a Solicitor. I do this on a part time basis with my other responsibilities as Practice Support Manager. I am currently based in the Police Misconduct and Personal Injury department. I act for individuals who are pursuing a complaint or civil action for compensation against the police and other bodies. For example this could include unlawful detention, malicious prosecution or assault. I also act for people who have suffered an injury due to the fault of someone or something else. This can include road traffic accidents, trips and slips, criminal injuries and abuse. I also represent survivors of non-recent abuse. This includes former inmates of Medomsley Detention Centre and Kirklevington Detention Centre. I am also part of a team at Ben Hoare Bell LLP calling for a public inquiry to take place into the abuse which occurred at Medomsley.
