Career

I am a leading serious injury lawyer and head of the catastrophic injury team, representing clients in the UK and internationally.

I am one of a handful of UK lawyers recognised by Chambers as a ‘Star Individual’ and am currently included in in The Lawyer Hot 100 2019. In 2018, I was shortlisted as Woman Lawyer of the Year at the Law Society Excellence Awards. My team won the Solicitors Journal Personal Injury team of the Year in 2017.

My experience covers brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, serious orthopaedic injury and fatal injury following accidents on the roads and at work. I also represent victims of sexual assault, terrorist attack & Ecoli O157 outbreaks.

I have successfully campaigned to introduce new legislation that now provides financial support for UK victims of terrorism, wherever in the world that attack occurs. I currently represent victims of the Westminster Bridge, London Bridge and the Finsbury Park Mosque terrorist atrocities.

I am currently running the UK cases against Harvey Weinstein for alleged historic sexual assaults. I have taken a civil rape case to trial and won – one of only a handful of cases that have ever reached trial without a criminal conviction.

Jill GreenfieldFieldfisher

The ‘truly excellent’ team at Fieldfisher is co-led by Paul McNeilPeter Williams and Jill Greenfield whom, having worked on international cases for victims of Harvey Weinstein, was sought out to act on behalf of UK victims of Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse in 2021, and did so successfully – she is described as being ‘at the top of her game’. The team is renowned for its international work, including acting on behalf of victims of terror attacks; it campaigned to introduce the legislation which now means that UK victims of terror attacks can fight for compensation, wherever in the world the attack occurs. Andrew Morgan and Peter Williams lead the asbestos and mesothelioma specialist sub-team; in 2021 they successfully widened the scope of dependency of those suffering mesothelioma to foster children, following a successful case at the Court of Appeal. Following a holistic approach, the team is dedicated to assisting clients with specialist care, support and rehabilitation, where needed. The team has also been at the forefront of the debate surrounding the safety of Smart Motorways, with ‘standout’ Harvinder Kaur having worked on such cases. ‘OutstandingDushal Mehta and ‘star‘ practitioner Jennifer Buchanan complete the roster of recommended practitioners.
