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."

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."
