The only London-based professional negligence firm to act exclusively for claimants, Healys’ Professional Negligence team has once again improved upon its ranking and celebrates a 7th consecutive year recognised in the Legal 500 directory.
The Legal 500 rankings provide the most comprehensive worldwide coverage on legal services providers, in over 100 countries. The directory results are all based on confidential client feedback.
The team has recently increased in size with the addition of two partners and one solicitor, and acts each year in about 35 claims with values ranging from £20,000 to £25 million. Most of the claims are against solicitors, barristers, architects, surveyors, financial advisers and accountants.
- Department head Robert Johnson is ‘incisive and attentive, responding instantly to queries with clear answers and explanations’; ‘very thorough and commercially minded’; ‘wealth of experience and strong commercial views’; ‘bright, commercial and manages to master the detail while at the same time being focused entirely on the commercial aims of the client’ as mentioned by the Legal 500 & Chambers & Partners.
- The ‘brilliant’ Jerome O’Sullivan is ‘tenacious and a strong negotiator’. He is the leading advisor for the claimant in a £1.1m dispute against two firms of solicitors in relation to a fraudulent property transaction.
- David Bailey is ‘one of the best commercial litigators’ and is known for his ‘clear and concise advice’. He is experienced in acting for financial institutions in cases against solicitors and valuers.
- Adrian Taylor,who recently joined the firm, is also noted, and recognised as ‘one of the leading global litigation solicitors’.
Robert Johnson, Head of the Professional Negligence team at Healys, commented, “We are pleased to improve upon our ranking from last year and delighted with the exceptional work and commitment to our clients that my team has shown in the past 12 months.”
Healys is proud of its record of winning over 95% of its clients’ claims against professionals.
