Legal 500 is an independent legal directory which recognises only a small number of firms in the UK which are considered to be the best in what they do. The directory covers all types of work. Barratts Solicitors is a specialist firm and we are consistently ranked number 1 for both our Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence departments. They both still achieve the top position in the East Midlands for legal advice. As the reviews are based on research with our clients, medical and rehabilitation experts and other lawyers, this accolade is especially important to us.
The Personal Injury team are noted for their increasing work in multi-jurisdictional cases, which involve accidents abroad. Both Ed Myers and David Tomlinson are regarded as “key players” with Ed named as one of only 3 leading individuals.
The Clinical Negligence department has particular strength in cerebral palsy claims with the team individually recognised for their work.
We are also pleased that our decision to recruit Julie Greenwood to set up a dedicated Court of Protection department is regarded as a real asset for both the Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury teams. This decision means that we can offer a more seamless service for clients who lack capacity to manage their compensation. We are proud to see the new department is not only recognised in Legal 500 but “stands out”.
Our thanks to all our current and former clients who agreed to be interviewed; what better praise than from clients who know first hand the quality of service that we provide. We know that our achievements are only possible with the hard work and expertise of all our staff. They all take enormous pride in their work and our thanks also go to them too. Barratts Solicitors is the only number 1 firm in the East Midlands for Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence claims.
