Watkins & Gunn Solicitors

With practitioners based in Newport, Pontypool and Cardiff, Watkins & Gunn Solicitors has excellent coverage across south east Wales and acts for clients across a range of personal injury matters including RTA, holiday cliams, elder abuse, and industrial disease cases. The team is, however, best-known for its employers' liability prowess and has represented the Bakers Union for over 25 years. Team head Clive Thomas has an excellent reputation across a variety of cases, including catastrophic injuries and psychiatric injury. Thomas recently settled a case for a claimant who suffered significant injuries in a workplace accident; the case was complicated by having to determine the extent to which her ongoing symptoms were the result of the accident and how much of them were caused by pre-existing arthritis and how this impacted on her inability to work. Jonathan Wellington and Lisa Guscott are also recommended.
