What people say

"I was well supported by my Leigh Day member, Emma Hall, and the case carried on to a very satisfactory outcome. Throughout the course of these six years I always felt my wishes were being listened to and as a result my confidence in my judgment of my case gradually returned." 

“Excellent all round, thank you very much … I am not the easiest client, I’m emotional and have learning difficulties but I was always treated like a human being and those difficulties dealt with. I would not have received payment if not for you, caring about my bad experience.”

"I should like to thank you for the work you have done on my behalf and acknowledge that Leigh Day have always had my best interests at heart. So ‘thank you’ and I wish you well in your career."

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team for all your work on my behalf in regards to my ASR claim."

Legal expertise

Emma is recognised not only for her meticulous and litigious approach to ensuring she secures the highest damages awards for her clients, but also her compassionate client care skills and her calm and understanding approach to clients who find litigation a daunting and difficult process.  

As a keen sportsperson herself Emma has developed a niche in acting for clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of sporting accidents and after using defective sports and fitness equipment. 

Emma has already successfully recovered substantial damages against leading bike manufacturers for defective bikes which were not fit for purpose. She currently represents a client who has suffered catastrophic brain and spinal injuries after the handlebar forks on their road bikes severed mid-ride. Her past successes include successfully securing damages for a client who suffered an array of serious and life-altering injuries when the handlebars on his Trek bike severed, and bringing a fatal accident claim on behalf of a semi-professional sportsman whose helmet was found to be defective and not manufactured in accordance with industry standards. 

Prior to joining Leigh Day, Emma gained extensive experience in running high value quantum clinical negligence claims, including fatal accident and catastrophic injury claims. She developed strong litigation experience, taking a number of high value cases to trial.
