Winn Solicitors are a leading law firm providing services to clients across the UK. The company was established in 2002 by Jeff Winn and Ghazala Bashey, with the primary purpose of handling personal injury claims. The highly specialised firm has grown rapidly and it is now a leading nationwide provider of personal injury legal services.
The company has a group structure, with Winn Holding Limited sitting above Winn Solicitors and its subsidiaries. Over 300 staff are employed across the group, with over 250 working in legal roles.
In 2013, Winn Solicitors was approved as an alternative business structure (ABS). To date, it remains the largest law firm in the North East to hold ABS status.
As an award-winning firm, the company has an excellent reputation for delivering an outstanding service to clients and has developed a strong track record for complex road traffic accident, accident at work claims and public liability claims, using specialist teams who focus on complex and high value claims.
Litigation: In January 2014, Winns set up their litigation team, in order to ensure that high client care standards are upheld despite changes within the industry. The team, headed up by Ghazala Bashey, deals with strategy on handling technical litigation challenges, including test case litigation. The team also provides extensive training to the rest of the firm to ensure that matters are dealt with in a unified and systematic way.
Complex claims: Winn Solicitors’ multi track team was created in 2015, in response to the growing number of serious injury claim instructions. The name of the team was changed to the ‘complex claims team’ to reflect the diversity of claims handled within the team. It is currently staffed by five grade A fee earners. The team handles cases involving soft tissue injury, whiplash, damaged tendons, ligaments and fractured bones, head and spinal injuries, tinnitus and chronic pain syndrome, as well as psychiatric injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and depressive disorders. Team members have extensive experience of handling high value and complex personal injury claims.
Employer liability/public liability: In May 2014, a new team was formed, dedicated to pursuing non-RTA personal injury claims, including accidents at work, public and occupiers’ liability. The team deal with a wide variety of claims. Three qualified and experienced solicitors also work within this team, specialising in different types of EL and PL claims.
