'For high-value, high-complexity claims the overall level of service is good, the team is responsive and its knowledge is excellent', say clients of Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP.

Coppin is leading the representation of Anglian Water in a number of claims arising from the a serious flooding incident in 2015, when Kirkley Stream burst its banks following a period of extremely heavy rainfall, affecting 33 properties in the vicinity. He also advised Legal and General Insurance on a complex and high-value claim arising from an accident at a family BBQ, in which the claimant sustained 38% total body surface area burns. Claimant solicitors put in an a schedule of loss at short notice claiming just under £5m after liability had been conceded in the belief that a £2m insurance indemnity would be sufficient. Senior associate Kirsten Almond is 'very thorough and considers all angles'. Senior legal assistant Carl Hurle is 'very user-friendly and responsive and often acts as an extension of the in-house team'. Senior associate Mark Milkovics has more than 25 years' experience in personal injury work and he recently defended  Union Hosteleria, trading as Hotels Holiday Parks, against a claim brought by a teenager who suffered a serious spinal injury  as a result of falling through the glass floor of her hotel balcony.
