What people say
"The lead partner I worked with, Bethany Sanders, clearly cared at a personal level as well as at a professional level. She was always aware of the personal challenges I had and adapted her style with empathy and understanding. In addition she worked hard to understand my business and the impacts on the business. We had a working relationship for nearly five years working on the case and she was consistent throughout. Always across the detail and able to adapt to new strategies and navigate the complexity to stay ahead of the defendant’s case. This enabled her to have a strong negotiating position at all times resulting in a settlement considerably higher than I expected." - Legal 500 2022
"I'm a young cyclist who was lucky enough to be covered by Leigh Day and represented by Bethany Sanders after a serious cycling accident involving a car last year. All I can say is that she/they were amazing. The case was closed with a settlement I could never have even dreamt of in less than 12 months and within that time I had seen several Medical specialists that Leigh Day recommended. Their expertise was invaluable, and it would simply have been out of reach without the professional contacts that Leigh Day has. Many thanks for everything you did and allowing me to put this chapter of my life firmly into the past!" - Tom Townsend
“My case was handled expertly at Leigh Day. Bethany fought for every different avenue of reclamation and helped me to secure a settlement that accounted for all possible areas of past, present and future loss. She was also kind, compassionate and understanding throughout the entire difficult and emotional process. I highly recommend Leigh Day.” - A Lee
