Personal Injury team remains Tier 1 in Legal 500 directory rankings

In the latest Legal 500 directory announcements, the personal injury team has retained its top ranking spot and testimonials from clients re-confirm the team's exceptional reputation as leading specialists in the field.

The ‘truly excellent’ Serious Injury team is led by Jill Greenfield, having worked on international cases for victims of Harvey Weinstein, was sought out to act on behalf of UK victims of Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse in 2021, and did so successfully – she is described as being ‘at the top of her game’.

The team is renowned for its international work, including acting on behalf of victims of terror attacks; it campaigned to introduce the legislation, which now means that UK victims of terror attacks can fight for compensation, wherever in the world the attack occurs.

Following a holistic approach, the team is dedicated to assisting clients with specialist care, support and rehabilitation, where needed. The team has also been at the forefront of the debate surrounding the safety of Smart Motorways, with ‘standout’ Harvinder Kaur having worked on such cases. ‘Outstanding‘ Dushal Mehta and ‘star‘ practitioner Jennifer Buchanan complete the roster of recommended practitioners.

‘In my opinion, definitely the best personal injury team there is, both in London and elsewhere in the UK. The team is totally outstanding and provides the best all-round service to claimants. No other team I have come across achieves results like this one; dealing with the aftermath of catastrophic injuries so as to get rapid interim payments and rehabilitation packages, and recovering outstanding settlements at the end of the case. I cannot praise them enough.’

Jill Greenfield is truly exceptional. They also have excellent support from associates and paralegals and all work brilliantly as a team.’

‘This is a truly excellent team which has a driven ethos, ensuring that the needs of a client and their family are met immediately and effectively. They are exceptional at ensuring that clients are moved from acute treatment placements to the best private rehabilitation units. They drive cases incredibly hard to conclusion. They have a very tough litigation and negotiation style but are pragmatic, flexible and resourceful. They are simply hugely experienced and able. In particular, unlike many others they are nimble on their feet but have huge resources at their disposal because they are part of a city firm.’

Jill Greenfield is an exceptional and dedicated litigator. Jennifer Buchanan is a star in the making – she’s highly intelligent, highly caring for clients, relentless in her pursuit of their interests, and so successful. Dushal Mehta is an outstanding lawyer – he’s dedicated, exceptionally hard-working and very caring.

‘Absolutely standout claimant personal injury and industrial disease team. Fieldfisher have an outstandingly able team of lawyers who devote significant amounts of focused partner and senior solicitor time to their cases. They provide exemplary, compassionate and supportive client care and are unflinching in their pursuit of their cases.’

‘The genuine care that they display towards their clients is unparalleled, as is the attention to detail in claim management, optimising outcomes for their clients. They are skilled at obtaining early interim payments for their clients and addressing their needs for recovery such as rehousing and ongoing medical care.’

Jill Greenfield and Jennifer Buchanan are at the top of their game. Keith Barrett is loved by clients and has bags of common sense.’
