Veitch Penny are celebrating the
announcement that the firm has been ranked in the leading publication, the
Chambers Guide 2013, as one of the leading firms in the South West
to specialise in Personal Injury.
Veitch Penny Solicitors have
consistently held the title, which is highly regarded by the legal industry,
for its Personal Injury Departments for the past 9 years.
The directory states that
Veitch Penny has experience with a variety of personal injury matters including
those relating to Employers Liability, Public Liability, holidays and
equestrian claims. The department is seeing a rise in the number of motor cycle
injury claims it handles and is putting its existing Road Traffic Collision
knowledge to good use. One barrister
commended the team's excellent preparation for cases and its way of
communicating with clients and experts in conference.
Previously editions of the guides have also affirmed that our clients
valued us as a "friendly and approachable" firm.
Also indentified as a key individual
is Andrew Harris, who is appreciated for his informality, availability and his specialist
motorcycle expertise. In the 2013 Guide, Andrew is said to have a great manner
with clients and is described as "hugely experienced" with
a "no-nonsense approach that gets great results."
The directory which is published annually is said to be the most
accurate and reliable, due to the in-depth research which identifies the
leading lawyers and law firms.
No lawyer can buy their way into the rankings.
Charles Dowell, Managing Partner, said “it is a great accomplishment for the firm
to be recognised by the Chambers Guide, following recommendations from our
clients and other professionals. It rewards the hard work and achievements of
the personal injury/litigation department over the last 12 months”
The Past 12 months have been particularly eventful for Veitch Penny,
this good news shortly follows Veitch Penny’s exciting announcement of a
business restructure which will see the legal practice able to provide a larger
range of services for local residents.
Veitch Penny has historically had a split
focus in terms of its services as it successfully operated both a Claimant and
Defendant litigation department for over 30 years. This has limited the firm’s
capacity to help anyone with a potential conflict against the many local and
public authorities that the firm also represented.
The Veitch Penny Partners decided that the two
parts of the firm would perform better as separate entities, rather than to
continue as one firm. The separation will give Veitch Penny new freedom to
offer a wider range of services to its private and business clients throughout
