Notwithstanding a number of departures, Slater and Gordon maintains notable strength in multi-track personal injury matters, especially overseas claims. Julia Hamilton ‘handles the most serious cases with aplomb; she has a good record of seeing difficult cases through to a successful conclusion’. The ‘empathetic’ Lindsay Holt is ‘business like and a strong negotiator; she has great strategic insight and is always ready to push an apparently closed door in the pursuit of a point’. Claire Horton  is ‘committed and highly competent’ and Sarah Sedge  is ‘practical with a very good eye for tactics and strategy’. Helen Budge  has ‘built up a good level of experience in serious cases and has a good knowledge of the law’. They are all principal lawyers. Ian Cohen is now at  Simpson Millar LLP, Kristofer Inskip  joined Hilary Meredith Solicitors and Jenny Urwin moved to Fieldfisher .
