Minton Morrill (Leeds)

Director Lindsey Lobley now heads the criminal defence team at Minton Morrill and is hailed as a ‘go-to defence solicitor’. Former head of team Philip Goldberg still undertakes all aspects of criminal work, but is now managing director following the merger of Lester Morrill and Mintons. Lobley is highly recommended and ‘has a tough yet persuasive style in and out of court’, while Goldberg’s ‘experience and expertise in criminal law means you get the highest-quality legal advice. Recent highlights for the team, which has an ‘unequalled reputation for excellence in Leeds’, include securing a lenient sentence for a client accused of GBH, and a successful representation in youth court in which a client was kept out of prison through the imposing of a referral order.

Minton Morrill (Leeds)

The merger of Mintons Solicitors and Lester Morrill to form Minton Morrill brings together two highly respected claimant clinical negligence practices with an extensive track record handling high-value, maximum-severity clinical negligence claims. Julia Morrillhas vast experience in handling the most difficult severe brain injury cases’, and Simon Mintonhas excellent relationships with many in the field and can often agree interims by consensus, which makes the claim run more smoothly’. The firm has a particularly high profile for handling cases involving children injured at birth and for severe brain injury cases; in an illustration of the former, consultant Charles Gillott acted for the claimant, who suffered a neonatal neurological illness leaving him severely disabled; the case was particularly complicated due to the client’s mother being a child in care of the local authority when she gave birth to him and who, upon becoming an adult and therefore no longer in care, applied to the Family Court to set aside the care order in respect of the claimant. Other key figures include Sahida Patel, who is ‘very responsive, efficient, intelligent, professional and organised’.
