Huw has over 20 years' experience and heads a team of highly specialised lawyers representing clients who have sustained severe traumatic brain injury. These are cases of great complexity and value. The majority of Huw’s cases are valued at many millions of pounds. He has a nationwide practice although most of his clients live in Southern England, Midlands and Wales.
Huw is extremely experienced in pulling together the team of medical and other experts necessary for the successful outcome of the client's litigation. These experts are often, themselves, regarded as leading national experts. He has extensive experience of taking over cases for clients from other solicitors, turning their case around, thereby achieving a significantly enhanced outcome.
Huw is frequently appointed by the Court of Protection to act in the capacity of Professional Deputy for a number of his and other clients, helping them to make decisions that they are unable to make themselves and assisting in the lifetime management of the damages recovered in their litigation.
The injuries sustained by Huw's clients often require complex rehabilitative regimes. Huw prides himself on early intervention and on maintaining extremely close working relationships, both with his clients and their families, and also those professionals brought in to assist in the client's rehabilitation and long-term care needs.
