Devereux is recognised as one of the leading sets in the country specialising in personal injury work. We are consistently listed in the top personal injury sets by both Chambers UK and Legal 500. The personal injury group, which includes three Queen’s Counsel, covers all aspects of personal injury work at the highest level. At the same time our strong team of juniors provide a complete service in multi-track and fast-track trials in courts up and down the country.

Chambers UK 2018 comments: 'Devereux possesses an excellent bench of personal injury advocates who are well versed in handling challenging injury claims. Members predominantly act for claimants in cases with complex liability aspects, often arising from road traffic accidents. They also handle mesothelioma claims. Interviewees praise their ability to "combine immense legal knowledge and tenacious litigation skills with an empathetic approach to the most vulnerable of clients." "We have a really good relationship with the clerks. They come back to us really quickly." "Very professional and service-focused." Vince Plant heads the clerking team.'

'Devereux is "a well-organised set with considerable breadth and depth" and "expertise at every level". The "well-regarded" group provides "an excellent service" and specialises in catastrophic injury work, including spinal and brain injury, psychiatric injury and amputation claims'. - Legal 500 2017

Chambers UK 2017 comments: 'Devereux continues to be instructed by leading claimant firms for high-value personal injury cases. Its valued members provide expert guidance in catastrophic, psychiatric and fatal injury matters, and regularly appear in the appellate courts litigating the most legally challenging cases.'

Chambers UK 2014 says: 'Noted for its focus on high-value catastrophic work and for its bench strength, Devereux is regarded by many as a standout set within the Personal Injury Bar. Its members are experienced across the full range of complex, severe personal injury claims, and are frequently involved in significant, high-profile actions.'

Solicitors come to us for our significant expertise in dealing with all types of accident and disease cases; from the simplest traumas to the most complex catastrophic injuries. Our members are regularly instructed to appear on novel and difficult cases raising points of law.

We take pride in our reputation for excellence while at the same time being friendly and easy to deal with. We are large enough to provide in depth expertise at all levels, but at the same time we take great care to provide a personal and sensitive approach to clients and their families. The advice and representation we provide is clear, practical and delivered in a way that is down-to-earth and unstuffy.

We have considerable expertise in settling cases at joint settlement meetings and in mediation but first and foremost we are advocates, with recognised excellence in trial advocacy on both liability and quantum issues. 

We have written or co-written prominent practitioners' texts in our specialist fields. We also write for legal publications and give lectures and seminars both externally and as part of our own continuing education programme.
