The firm, which is a leader in clinical negligence, personal injury and travel claims, has for the first time achieved a UK-wide ranking for its international personal injury defendant work in the legal directory Chambers.

BL Claims Solicitors also achieved a top tier 1 ranking for its clinical negligence teams in the Southampton region. The directory praises the firm for its “well respected team with the ability to handle highly sensitive cases in a client-friendly way.”

The firm’s clinical negligence specialists are included in the rankings as National Leaders outside London, while BL Claims Solicitors’ personal injury practice in Southampton and clinical negligence specialists in the Oxford region also feature strongly.

Chambers has plaudits for individuals at the firm, which has experienced lawyers in locations around the country including Cardiff, London, Oxford, Portsmouth, Reading and Southampton.

Daniel Scognamiglio, head of the travel claims team, is described as “unbelievably good with claimants – you couldn’t find yourself in more sympathetic, astute hands”.

Eleanor Armstrong and Lauren Haas in the travel team are highlighted as UK-wide Associates to Watch, as are Patricia Wakeford, Kym Provan and Gemma Osgood in the clinical negligence team.

Ruth Powell, who heads the clinical negligence specialism in the firm’s London office, is listed and praised as a “good” and “pragmatic” solicitor.

Clinical negligence specialist Alison McClure is singled out as an Eminent Practitioner, and described in the directory as a “vastly experienced lawyer” who is “very effective” when dealing with child brain injury cases.
