Ben RogersStewarts Law LLP

As of May 2022, Daniel Herman has taken over from Paul Paxton as leader of the ‘standout’ personal injury offering at Stewarts Law LLP. The team deals with the most complex, high-value catastrophic personal injury claims, acting exclusively for clients who have suffered life-changing injuries worth a minimum of £1m in damages – its cases often involve road traffic or workplace accidents resulting in such issues as brain, spinal, psychiatric and orthopaedic injury, as well as injuries requiring amputation. It also has extensive experience dealing with cross-border cases. The team’s ethos is that every partner has fewer clients and a smaller workload, allowing them the time necessary to focus fully on the cases that they are running. Stephanie Clarke has been involved with some of the team’s most complex cases in recent years, including a landmark interim payment settlement. Kara Smith leads the pro bono team, which provides 10,000 hours worth of free legal advice to hospital patients, annually. Managing partner Stuart Dench, Charles Edwards and Ben Rogers are also recommended.
