Banner Jones Solicitors

Banner Jones Solicitors impresses with an ‘outstanding’ and ‘very efficient’ team that focuses primarily on personal injury matters, but also demonstrates strength in clinical negligence. While the group offers a broad spectrum of expertise, including employers and public liability, diseases and physical and sexual abuse, the core focus areas are brain and spinal injuries and cases involving loss of limb or life. Executive director Simon Wright, who also directs the practice, is ‘a top-class personal injury and clinical negligence litigator’ who is ‘never flustered or outmaneuvered by his opponents’. Both Wright and executive director Robert Banner combine ‘intellectual rigour’ with ‘very good client skills’. Banner recently successfully obtained a substantial schedule of provisional losses for a client who had suffered an injury to the soft tissue in his foot when a heavy object fell onto it, leaving the client facing uncertain career prospects and with subsequent psychological symptoms.
