Minton Morrill > Leeds, England > Firm Profile

Minton Morrill

Minton Morrill is one of the leading claimant clinical negligence practices in Yorkshire.

The practice:  Minton Morrill represents niche practice areas, representing clients nationwide.  It has three accredited members of the Law Society Clinical Negligence and/or Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) panels and holds a legal aid contract in clinical negligence.  In recent years the practice has received awards or commendations for its excellence and that of its specialist lawyers at the British Legal Awards, The Yorkshire Legal Awards, The Law Society Excellence Awards and the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards.

Types of work undertaken:  This is a niche practice not simply because it confines itself to excelling in specific fields, but because it offers advice in highly specialised, complex or unusual areas of law to an accredited, regulated standard.  Due to its expertise it regularly receives recommendations from other solicitors and acts for clients nationally as well as locally.  Minton Morrill is often involved in very high-value, complex and ground-breaking cases.  It is justifiably proud of the rankings achieved by its teams and individual lawyers within both The Legal 500 and Chambers  Guide to Leading UK Lawyers.

Minton Morrill offers specialist representation in the areas of clinical negligence (often involving high-value and complex claims), Court of Protection (property and financial affairs), wills and probate.

What makes Minton Morrill extraordinary is the blend of interaction between its various expert teams.  As an example, in clinical negligence claims for birth and brain injuries where following a compensation award the Court of Protection team can deal with all financial aspects to include deputyship and trust work to include purchasing suitably adapted property, implementing care regimes, involving case managers and therapists as examples.  This makes for a seamless, consistently quality-assured, holistic service to all of its clients, including those families which have been bereaved and vulnerable individuals with diminished capacity.

Clients and peers alike commend the practice for its personal service, common sense, client-focused and tenacious approach as well as for its wealth of technical knowledge and experience.  This often results in successful outcomes on behalf of clients whom other practices cannot service.
