Huw Ponting


I have over 20 years experience representing clients (and their families) who have sustained severe traumatic brain injury as well as other life changing injuries

"Offers a first-class service to claimants." Chambers Guide 2019

I specialise in helping clients with life changing injuries, with a particular focus on the brain. These are cases of great complexity often valued in many millions of pounds. My clients are from all parts of the country and I have also represented clients who have had accidents abroad. I am often asked to take cases over which were commenced with other firms of solicitors.

I am experienced in bringing together comprehensive rehabilitative packages of care and support for clients helping them achieve their maximum potential following their injury.
