I am a leading serious injury lawyer and head of the catastrophic injury team, representing clients in the UK and internationally.
I am one of a handful of UK lawyers recognised by Chambers as a 'Star Individual' and am currently included in in The Lawyer Hot 100 2019. In 2018, I was shortlisted as Woman Lawyer of the Year at the Law Society Excellence Awards. My team won the Solicitors Journal Personal Injury team of the Year in 2017.
My clients' injuries are life changing, and I fight hard, quickly and effectively for them. I launch proceedings early and place insurers under pressure in order to achieve the best results for my clients.
My experience covers brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, serious orthopaedic injury and fatal injury following accidents on the roads and at work. I also represent victims of sexual assault, terrorist attack & Ecoli 0157 outbreaks.
I work quickly to put in place rehabilitation at an early stage of a case, unlocking funds from insurers to get the best medical care and therapy for my clients.
I am passionate in my support of victims and their families and seek to use the law to campaign for the most vulnerable. I have for many years represented victims of terrorist attacks and successfully campaigned to introduce new legislation that now provides financial support for UK victims of terrorism, wherever in the world that attack occurs. I currently represent victims of the Westminster Bridge, London Bridge and the Finsbury Park Mosque terrorist atrocities.
I am passionate about women's rights and I campaign to improve women's access to justice. I am currently running the UK cases against Harvey Weinstein for alleged historic sexual assaults. I have taken a civil rape case to trial and won - one of only a handful of cases that have ever reached trial without a criminal conviction.
I regularly act for children and seek to improve safety standards. This includes the introduction of new regulation following the death of Grace Roseman in a bed side sleeper cot and better protection of children visiting Open Farms following serious outbreaks of E Coli 0157 in the UK over the past 20 years. E Coli 0157 is now recognised as a notifiable disease and more stringent safety measures apply.
My focus is always to intervene on behalf of clients quickly and effectively to get them the specialist medical care and support to help them recover and rebuild their lives as far as possible. This often marks the difference between achieving quality of life and not.
I am known for my dogged determination in pursuing insurers and other professional bodies to achieve the absolute best for my clients, and my team do the same. We are proud of what we achieve for our clients.
In January 2018, I was elected Treasurer for APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) the not for profit campaign organisation dedicated to protecting people who have sustained serious and life-changing injuries through no fault of their own.
What others say…
Sources attest that Jill Greenfield is a"phenomenal lawyer" with a broad and pioneering practice, who is nonetheless "incredibly down to earth." As well as handling high-value cases involving neurological and orthopaedic injuries caused by accidents, she is renowned for bringing novel claims arising from terror attacks and sexual assault. Sources deem her "something of a legend - the most determined litigator you could come across."
Jill Greenfield inspires absolute confidence in her clients, meets and deals with them all personally, takes no nonsense from opponents and issues claims early or enters agreements with insurers to get vital rehabilitation early in a case.
