Colin Cook, Hatch Brenner's new Managing Partner

Hatch Brenner Solicitors on Norwich’s Theatre Street has elected a new Managing Partner. The firm’s partnership has selected the Head of Dispute Resolution and leading brain injury solicitor, Colin Cook, for the role as the firm approaches its 130th anniversary. The current Managing Partner, Dawn Parkes, stands down following eight years in the position.

Dispute Resolution Partner and Personal Injury specialist, Colin Cook joined Hatch Brenner Solicitors in 2005 upon moving to Norwich and was appointed to the partnership in 2012. With over 25 years’ experience in personal injury litigation, Colin has handled landmark cases, including the recent nationally reported mild traumatic brain injury case – Long vs Elegant Resorts, securing over half a million pounds in compensation for the client following a fiercely contested trial.

Qualifying in practice in Lancashire, Colin was a Partner at a London firm prior to joining Hatch Brenner Solicitors.

Throughout his career, Colin has helped hundreds of clients to receive the compensation they are entitled to. His cases range from several thousand to over a million pounds with many high-profile settlements. As an active member of the Norwich community, Colin sits on the board of trustees for brain injury charity Headway Norfolk and Waveney.

“It is a truly exciting time to be taking the firm forward in the post COVID era. With formidable teams across all areas of the business, there is a world of opportunity to look forward to. I am honoured to be taking over this role from Dawn whose contribution and leadership over the last 8 years has been invaluable. We will continue to advise our clients, providing the highest levels of excellence and service,” comments Colin.

“I’m really looking forward to leading Hatch Brenner Solicitors into its next phase and on behalf of the firm, I would like to thank Dawn Parkes for her years of service as Managing Partner”.

Commenting on Colin’s election to the role, Dawn said: “I would like to congratulate Colin. I've witnessed his dedication to the firm and our clients over the past 17 years. I know that he brings the right qualities, skills, and experience to lead the partnership and Hatch Brenner Solicitors to continued success. The firm is in good hands.”
