What do our clients and professional colleagues say about Leigh Day?
“It's very clear that Leigh Day are not just simply another money making machine. But do act genuinely to support those who have the courage to challenge, but lack direction.”

“Frances Swaine is, of course, a thoroughbred lawyer, but she is also a highly principled individual. She cares about the ‘small’ person and in my case, she tackled head on the complex legal issues involved in my predicament. She did not flinch for a moment about helping me and, as a consequence of her committed work, and that of her assistant Gavin Sullivan, my quality of life is much improved. I am, and always will be, indebted to Leigh Day.”
"I found Leigh Day and Daniel in particular, to be considerate and understanding at all times. He was very knowledgeable and showed great sensitivity and patience with any concerns or questions I had which was very much appreciated at this very difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others in a similar position."
“Leigh Day offered a conscientious and reassuring service for over 4 years, from shortly after the accident to the point of settlement. Sally Moore’s dedication and commitment were evident throughout the case, and her formidable grasp of the legal thicket, meant we always knew our case was in the best possible hands. Despite the circumstances, we felt lucky to have the representation we did."
"Our child has cerebral palsy as a result of an undiagnosed placental abruption. Having transferred the case from other solicitors, we really appreciated the approach Leigh Day took to the case. Underlying everything was their desire to achieve the appropriate level of compensation to meet my child’s life-time needs . Their team approach to the case coupled with the experience of Leigh Day and the barristers and experts they employed, meant that this was done in a manner, and a timescale, that recognised the huge stresses we (like all families with a profoundly injured child) were under. A really big thank you to Leigh Day."
"I have specialised in the field of clinical negligence for many years, acting for both claimants and defendants. For a long time I have felt that Leigh Day is one of a very small group of top specialist firms in the field in this country whose name I have been prepared to recommend, without hesitation, to distressed persons asking for the name of a solicitor they can go to see for advice arising out of some grave medical accident."

"fpa has worked with Leigh Day on several important reproductive health care cases including the successful outcome, in 2004, of a Judicial Review on securing equal access to termination of pregnancy services in Northern Ireland. They helped to build a unique case which clarified Northern Ireland’s abortion laws and which will help to end the discrimination of those women legally entitled to an abortion in Northern Ireland."
