By Nick Batten on November 7, 2018

Swindon-based personal injury law firm, Novum Law, has been given what it describes as the “highest possible” (band 1) ranking for its personal injury expertise in the latest edition of the Chambers and Partners Guide to the Legal Profession.

The firm’s personal injury lawyers are described by the ‘legal bible’ as being at the “very top” of their profession. Additionally, it is “once again” the highest ranked personal injury law firm in Swindon and the surrounding area.

The guide describes Novum Law as having a “healthy presence” across the South West, while offering “notable strength” in industrial disease cases and catastrophic injury claims.

The firm was particularly highlighted for its experience in “complex neurological injuries” and its “considerable expertise” in assisting children who have sustained severe injuries. Novum Law’s cases of note include “spinal injury cases and those related to asbestos.”

Special mention was given to various Novum Law personal injury lawyers including Neil Elliott and Anna Cole who were named as leading professionals for their “outstanding” work.

Novum Law director, Neil Elliott was also singled out for his expertise on head injury claims, as well as operating on spinal injury cases.

Anna Cole, also a director of Novum Law, won praise for her client-friendly approach with one source noting that clients “really seem to like her.”

Novum Law claims that its office in Southampton, which focuses on asbestos-related industrial disease issues, also performed “extremely well” in this year’s Chambers, retaining its ‘excellent’ band 2 ranking.

The Southampton team was praised for being “tenacious” and “ensuring clients are well-informed.”

Novum Law director Lynn Yeates, who is based in Southampton, was highlighted as “an asbestos expert.” Clients also stated that “she is very good, and does the job she promises.”

Tim Robinson, finance director of Novum Law, said: “To be independently reviewed as the best specialist personal injury law firm in the area for another year is a significant achievement and we are extremely proud of the help, advice and support we give all our clients. Our strong performance is a testament to the professionalism, expertise and dedication of our talented teams.”
