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

"They are open, approachable, methodical and efficient. They are clear and offer regular communication." Chambers Guide 2018

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.
