About Melanie Ford


Melanie is a senior litigator and Team Manager of the Brain injury team at NewLaw Solicitors. She runs a complex case load and has responsibility for the management of 10 fee earners.


Melanie has experience in representing Claimants and Defendants in relation to road traffic accidents, accidents at work and public liability claims. She now specialises in representing Claimants who have sustained severe brain and orthopaedic injuries. She has experience of working with claimants who lack the capacity to manage their own litigation and property and financial affairs. She led cases involving settlement on a periodical payment basis and involving protected parties requiring settlement approval. Melanie works closely with Claimants’ their families, professional deputies, case managers and multidisciplinary rehabilitation providers throughout the duration of the claim.


In addition to her fee earning role Melanie also manages the Brain Injury team. She is responsible for the training and mentoring of fee earners in addition to general supervision and auditing.


She graduated from Cardiff University with a degree in Law and Criminology in 2003, qualifying in 2010 and join NewLaw Solicitors in 2011.
