Hugh James is proud to announce that we won the awards for Clinical Negligence Team of the Year and Outstanding Case of the Year. The ceremony took place yesterday evening (27th November 2019) at the Hilton Hotel in Deansgate, Manchester.

The team had a great night networking and celebrating with other industry experts. Congratulations to all the teams who were shortlisted and took home awards!

Mari Rosser, Head of Medical Negligence said:

“We are delighted to have won the prestigious Clinical Negligence Team of the Year award. The team has been representing victims of medical accidents throughout the UK for in excess of three decades. The skills and experience we have developed over this period has helped us to deliver the outstanding service which our seriously injured clients deserve. This area of law continues to face huge challenges as a result of policy changes. Hugh James will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that the patient’s interests are served in the face of those changes.”

Simon Ellis, Head of the Military Team said:

“I am thrilled we have won the Outstanding Case of the Year award for the Inglis vs MoD case. Hearing loss is a huge problem for many within the military and doesn’t receive the attention it deserves. This case was hugely important for Mr Inglis as it addressed the long term financial implications he faced through his hearing difficulties. It has wider implications for the veteran community at large. I hope this award helps to highlight the problems our veterans can face through injuries suffered in service to our country.”

Stephen Webber, Head of Individual Client Services said:

“I am so proud of the team in winning both Clinical Negligence Team of the Year and Outstanding Case of the Year. We have had numerous multi million pound settlements this year as well as outstanding feedback from our clients. I am so pleased that the clinical negligence team has been recognised for the great work they have done for their clients this year and I am so proud of the team.“The Inglis case will change the lives of thousands of servicemen and women. I am so pleased this case has been recognised as the leading case this year and highlights that Hugh James is at the forefront of claimant litigation in the UK.”
