Collins Solicitors has again been ranked in the first tier for ‘Personal Injury: Mainly Claimant – Thames Valley’ and in the second tier for ‘Family/Matrimonial – Thames Valley,’ in the 2015 edition of Chambers UK, published this week.
The firm’s Watford-based Personal Injury practice is described as “highly regarded for skilful handling of complex group litigation cases, often in matters concerning industrial disease. Also frequently instructed in sophisticated employers’ liability issues.” A client comments that the Collins team as being ‘exemplary – they have a very well-measured sense of care for their clients.’
Senior Partner and head of the PI practice, Des Collins, is highlighted for his “wealth of experience in severe personal injury matters, including group litigation. He is seen as being able to build ‘very calming relationships with very anxious clients,’ and as someone who ‘gets good results.’”
The team’s work representing residents of Watling Street, Motherwell in a case concerning potential contamination of housing from toxic industrial metals is cited as major piece of current work for the team.
The Family / Matrimonial team is recognised for “its work in areas such as divorce, ancillary relief and children matters, with particular expertise in Children Act matters with an international element as well as in areas of dispute resolution such as collaborative law and mediation,” with Paul McGinley being the key contact at the firm for this practice.
