Minton Morrill is one of the leading Claimant Clinical Negligence Practices in Yorkshire.

The firm: Minton Morrill represents a number of niche practice areas, representing clients nationwide. It has 5 accredited members of the Law Society Clinical Negligence and/or Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) panels, legal aid contracts in clinical negligence, actions against the police/inquests, community care, public law, debt and housing. 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 the Legal Professional.

Minton Morrill offers specialist representation in the areas of clinical negligence (often involving high-value and complex claims), civil liberties (including inquests and actions against the police), court of protection (both welfare and finance), social welfare (including social housing, judicial review, community care and high court planning) and wills and probates.

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.

Claims involving death can be dealt with entirely in-house, with no need to seek expertise outside the practice should matters involve the highly specialised field of inquest law. Similarly, a case which begins as an inquest matter can ultimately become a civil claim for compensation and, if the death occurred in custody, may require the expertise of the award-winning civil liberties team (incorporating skills in actions against the police).

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.
