Barr Ellison’s Personal Injury team has been lauded by the Legal 500, which comments on the team’s significant cases in 2016 included advising a teenager with pre-accident psychiatric history on a complex brain injury case that settled for more than £2 million; acting in a multi-million pound traumatic brain injury claim in which the client was left with epilepsy, poor memory, concentration and slurred speech; and settling a claim for more than £6 million in which a client was left with tetraplegia and diffuse axonal brain injury after a high-velocity RTA.
Barr Ellison LLP is ‘one of the best PI firms in East Anglia for high-value work and it has a track record of dealing with the highest-value cases sensitively and successfully’. Legal 500, October 2017
Head of Personal Injury, Emma Truin, has continued her ranking as a top tier lawyer by both Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500. In their 2018 rankings, Chambers and Partners wrote that Emma attracted warm praise for her work in the personal injury space, covering life-changing brain and spinal injury cases. One source comments: “Other than her excellent organisation and communication skills, Emma is incredibly personable,” while another adds: “She is a very hard-working, determined and able lawyer.”
Other team members singled out for praise are Daryl Robinson, Mark Copley and Robert Curry who are all ranked as recommended lawyers by the Legal 500.
Senior litigator Daryl Robinson (‘a top-class PI lawyer who is able to engage well with clients and is tenacious in achieving the very best outcome’) and managing partner Robert Curry each have more than 30 years’ litigation experience. Mark Copley ‘has a gentle touch with clients and can lull even the most obstreperous opponent into a false sense of security’. Legal 500, October 2017
Emma and her team have dealt with hundreds of serious and catastrophic brain, orthopaedic and spinal injury claims. A Trustee of Headway Cambridgeshire, Emma is particularly recognised for her experience in representing clients affected by brain injury.
Unlike ‘volume’ claims companies, Barr Ellison provides a highly personal service to ensure that the needs of our clients are met. The practice is focused around serious head, spinal and catastrophic injuries.
