Our Public Sector Litigation Team deals primarily with the defence of claims brought against local authorities, other public bodies such as the police and fire services and corporate clients. We have a thorough understanding of both the insurer and insured, and continually develop our Team’s capabilities in order to provide the best possible service. We have a strong reputation for our public sector work, both locally and nationally, with clients ranging from small local authorities to large international insurance companies. We have an enviable success rate and we work hard to save our clients both time and money on claims that can be extremely complex.
This has helped us to develop long term relationships with clients who appreciate our efforts on their behalf:
“They are without doubt the most efficient firm we have dealt with.”
“I have always found their level of service to be of the highest standard.”
“Over the years they have provided me with invaluable legal advice and guidance.”
“We continually deal with the same members of their team so there is continuity which helps to establish an effective working relationship.”
Our public sector experience means that we are also well placed to handle claims which are brought against our commercial clients. Our combined experience therefore covers a wide range of claims for a variety of clients.
The latest 2016 Chambers entry describing our Insurance Litigation Team and Robert Hams: Rob Hams of Wansbroughs Solicitors is "highly regarded by insurers because of his client care and his knowledge of local authorities."
He has extensive experience defending local authorities and other public sector clients against a wide range of personal injury claims.
Whilst the Legal 500 say, "Wansbroughs knows the local authority market inside out."
Cynthia Watts has "an incredible ability to summarise a matter concisely." Clients include Gloucestershire Constabulary and Bristol City Council.
