Slee Blackwell are a Legal 500 recommended firm for 2021
The 2021 edition of the Legal 500 has been published and once again Slee Blackwell have been included as a recommended legal practice.
The Legal 500 is the leading guide to law firms and solicitors in the UK. It is a hugely influential publication, with over four million users visiting its website annually.
Inclusion in the guide is based on detailed analysis of thousands of interviews carried out by independent legal researchers.
Every firm of solicitors that is ranked in the UK Legal 500 is ‘recommended’.
Two departments have been identified in the latest edition: personal injury and clinical negligence
Our personal injury team is recognised for their a niche expertise in Animals Act, historic abuse and stress at work cases. Lawyers James McNally, Elizabeth Duncan and Rachel Thain are all singled out for praise.
Oliver Thorne, who heads up our clinical negligence unit is featured for his handling of high-value claims, including birth injuries, spinal injuries and acquired brain injuries.
Various cases we have dealt with over the past year have been highlighted in the Legal 500. These include:
- A woman whose right earlobe was bitten off by a dog and could not be reattached;
- A case involving the tragic death of baby;
- A woman who suffered serious sexual abuse at the hands of her grandmother’s partner; and
- A client who suffered a loss of sight during routine laser eye surgery.
The publication also features a number of very positive testimonials that were given to the independent researchers, including the following:
‘Approachability, patience and understanding. Everybody from reception staff up are welcoming.’
‘Slee Blackwell are a niche PI team, very astute as to the state of the market, proactive, great at client care and because they are specialists, they know their stuff.‘
Slee Blackwell’s managing partner Nick Arthur was delighted that the firm has again been included in the prestigious guide:
“It’s a tremendous achievement for Slee Blackwell and I would like to applaud all our hardworking and dedicated lawyers who made this possible. They have all done very well.”
