Praise from Queen's Counsel

"In the north west, the team has been further strengthened by the acquisition of big-hitter James Gratton in the role of supervisory lawyer. Working with senior solicitor Matthew Tollitt, their careful but pragmatic approach enabled a £1m settlement for an inexperienced scaffolder who fell through a skylight, suffering multiple injuries. In the clinical negligence field, Rosalyn Steeple’s meticulous preparation has recently secured an admission of liability in a difficult cerebral palsy case."

Praise from the Legal 500

"The service provided by the personal injury serious injury team is compassionate, thorough and with a particular emphasis on ensuring their clients are set up for life. The asbestos team deal with the sensitive nature of such cases with compassion and empathy and provide an absolute first class service to clients and their families."

"The team is well equipped to deal with all aspects of claims from the slip, trip and fall to the top of the spectrum. They deliver and manage members’ expectations from day one to conclusion."

The team also handles high value cerebral palsy and wrongful birth cases. Senior clinical negligence specialist lawyer Clare Jones joined from Horwich Farrelly in July 2018 and is adept at handling cases relating to delayed diagnosis of cancer and amputations. Senior solicitor Rosalyn Steeple deals with complex medical negligence claims.
