What our clients say
Leigh Day handled a class action case against VW for the Diesel Scandal. They secured a substantial out of court settlement for me that far exceeded my expectations. They kept me updated at every step of a long drawn out case and gave me good advice. A top professional law firm.

What our clients say
I found Leigh Day provided an excellent quality of legal service. Their communications were timely, clear and easy to understand. Which, in my experience, not all lawyers manage to achieve. In my opinion not only a great law firm but an excellent representative of UK lawyers.
