Russell-Cooke LLP is considered by a client to have 'an enormously good reputation' in personal injury work. Deborah Blythe leads a team that offers a blend of clinical negligence and personal injury expertise. Its recent work includes acting for the family of a doctor who was killed in a road traffic accident while working abroad. Another complex case concerned the death of an individual in a road accident in the UK where the victim did not have UK immigration status. Janice Gardner is 'diligent and fair' and has a 'strong work ethic and a keen sense of justice', which makes her 'admired by her opponents and loved by her clients'. Other key individuals are Dominic Fairclough, who mainly deals with fatal personal injury claims, and Sarah Towler, who covers accidents in the workplace, public liability and road traffic accidents.
