Our involvement in the cycling community


Our passion extends beyond our day jobs. Most of our team ride their bikes every day - racing, touring and commuting.

We are members of the All Party Parliamentary  Cycling Group and Action on Lorry Danger Group.

We work with charities such as RoadPeace on issues affecting cyclists and we have proud associations with elite athletes such as Paratriathlete, George Peasgood.

Our association with British Cycling goes back over 17 years; our commitment to the cycling community is genuine and long-held.

Campaigning

We passionately believe that we must create truly liveable towns and cities for the wellbeing of all. To make the bike central to that vision, road infrastructure must continue to improve and the safety of cyclists is paramount.

Many of the collisions that happen in the UK are preventable. Vehicle drivers, the motor insurance and construction industries as well as local authorities must all take responsibility and we take our role as lawyers in ensuring that accountability very seriously. Our team is proud to be part of vital campaigning work being carried out by British Cycling and road safety charities to increase cycling and prevent death and serious injury on our roads.

We support the enforcement of a robust and rigorous criminal legal system that will penalise drivers appropriately when they have injured or killed a cyclist.
 
Many of our staff cycle to Leigh Day’s London offices, which neighbour Barts hospital in Smithfields, so we have partnered with the Bespoke study, supported by the Barts Charity Safe Cycling Appeal, to explore the causes of bicycle-related injuries in London.
 
The Bespoke project is a collaboration between the research teams of the Orthopaedic and Emergency Departments of Europe’s busiest trauma centre at the Royal London Hospital. Leading consultants at this hospital see some of the most serious and life-threatening injuries, and have observed a nearly 400% increase in cycling-related injuries over the last 10 years.

As people who ride bicycles, the team’s ultimate aim is to prevent cycle-related traumatic injury and encourage cycling for all.
