The 'strong team' at Bindmans LLP  attracts praise for its 'excellent and highly personal service'. The practice workload includes claims arising from delayed diagnosis, birth or brain injuries and psychiatric disorders. It also provides pro bono advice to vulnerable members of society. The practice was strengthened by the arrival of Alison Mackintosh from Plexus Law and Darren Conway, who previously worked at Tollers. Department head Jon Crocker 'sets the tone of the team' and is 'intelligent, enthusiastic and able'. Other notable individuals include Siobhan Kelly, who is a 'good and determined negotiator' and 'offers first-class client care' and the 'warm and dedicated' Alla Murphy, who is 'very focused on the client but is not afraid to call a halt to a claim which is likely to fail'.

Within: Personal injury: claimant

Bindmans LLP is a 'market leader with an increasing profile' and is 'very highly rated in this area'. The team is described as 'thorough and balanced' and 'a breath of fresh air to work with': the lawyers 'involve their clients in each stage of the legal process and ensure that the claimant is able to become an empowered participant'. The team handles claims involving catastrophic injuries, in particular birth-related injuries and brain injuries where damages can reach over £1m. Siobhan Kelly, who 'stands out among the group', and 'the meticulous and persistent' Alla Murphy, who is one of the lead lawyers in the Grenfell fire inquiry team assisting many of the bereaved and survivors, are key individuals. The 'unflappable' Jon Crocker heads the clinical negligence and personal injury team and is assisted by associate Yagmur Ekici.
