Leigh Day & Co. Solicitors Review – London

Leigh Day & Co. Solicitors


Leigh Day & Co. describes itself as a “highly distinctive” law firm unafraid to take on challenges other firms would refuse. They were formed in 1987 with a mission to make sure the ordinary citizen has access to legal representation of the same quality available to those with means. As such, they have championed the cause of more than one David against a formidable Goliath.

Today the firm prides itself in being a specialist in both human rights and the more complex aspects of personal injury. They believe in fairness and equity for all, including reasonable compensation in exchange for the highest quality legal advice. The lawyers of Leigh Day & Co. are committed to doing whatever it takes to help clients achieve justice.

History of the Practice

More than 20 years ago solicitor Sarah Leigh left her position as a clinical negligence solicitor to start her own personal injury law firm. She recruited fellow solicitor Martyn Day to join her in her new pursuit and the firm was on its way. It soon became apparent to the duo that the need for personal injury representation among London residents was great.

In the months and years that followed, additional team members were added to keep up with demand and expansion. Leigh Day & Co. excelled in the area of defending people who suffered harm at the hands of government entities, institutions, and corporations. With the adoption of the Human Rights Act of 1998, Leigh felt it was only natural that the firm should open its human rights division.

The human rights division specialises in achieving justice for those who are denied basic human rights to medical and social services. The firm is not afraid to take on any individual or entity that would seek to treat their clients poorly.

Areas of Practice

Leigh Day & Co. offers advice and representation in a number of areas of personal injury and human rights. Below is a listing of the areas of practice including a short description of each:

  • General Personal Injury – The personal injury category covers most sorts of major life-altering accidents resulting in brain injury, spinal injury, amputations, and permanent disability. These cases can involve workplace accidents, road crashes, injuries sustained at schools, and even accidents resulting in fatalities.
  • Brain and Spinal – Though brain and spinal injuries are frequently part of personal injury claims Leigh Day & Co. considers this a separate area of practice because of the unique aspects of such injuries.
