I am delighted to say that despite a very difficult year for everyone in the UK our staff and solicitors have worked tirelessly to progress current client’s claims and to advise new clients as they approach us. The quality of our advice and service has been recognised again by both clients and others we work with. I am proud to confirm in the last few months we have received the following awards:
Chambers & Partners
The “Chambers & Partners” Guide to the best lawyers in the UK is released annually. We have been included for many years and recommended as a Top Ranked and Leading Firm in Clinical Negligence work in the North East. You may have seen this logo on the home page of our website. We are proud to announce that we have once again been recognised in this Guide as the only Band 1 (top ranked) firm for Clinical Negligence in the Tees Valley Area and all 4 of our Partners have been individually recognised as specialists in their field of work. Joanne Davies now joins Hilton Armstrong as a Band 1 specialist, Ashleigh Holt & Kathryn Watson as Band 2 Specialists.
The firm is described as a “Stellar boutique firm with outstanding expertise in clinical negligence claims” and “Solicitors at the firm are ‘brilliant, friendly and easy to access’,…….Sources praise team members for ‘really putting clients at ease regarding the whole process,’ also adding that they ‘definitely provide a good, personal service’”.
Our solicitors are equally individually recognised for their work with very positive reviews from those interviewed:
Ashleigh Holt is “very capable and has good relationships with clients.”
Joanne Davies is a “’well-organised solicitor who runs cases very well’….Sources also appreciate her ‘very close attention to detail’.”
Kathryn Watson “receives acclaim for being ‘a solicitor who really thinks about and understands her cases with a level of depth’.”

Again in this prestigious guide to the UK Legal Profession, following interviews with clients and barristers all of whom have experience of our firm’s work we received praise for the quality of our advice and service. We are ranked as one of only three Tier 1, top rated firms in the North of England for Claimant Clinical Negligence work. Both Hilton Armstrong & Joanne Davies were also recognised as “Leading Individuals” in their speciality and the firm is applauded for being a “Highly specialised boutique” where “There are many solicitors in this practice who are very knowledgeable, professional, understandable and reachable.‘ They also confirm that “They give you a very personal service and have a professional yet caring attitude.‘
Kathryn Watson is praised as a “Next Generation Partner” who “genuinely cares about her cases and engages in the fine detail. She really understand the needs of clients, and is skilled at steering them through some tough decisions” and Joanne Davies is noted to be a solicitor who “thoroughly understands the needs of her clients”.
