National recognition for Civil Liberties specialist Andrew Petherbridge as Hudgell Solicitors shortlisted for ‘Law Firm of the Year’ in Modern Claims Awards

Rising Star logo


A lawyer with a growing reputation for handling civil liberties cases of national significance – in particular major human rights cases – has secured industry recognition as part of the 2017 Modern Claims Awards.

Andrew Petherbridge, of Hudgell Solicitors, has been shortlisted in the 2017 Awards in the ‘Rising Star’ category, in recognition of his work on many major cases over the past 12 months.

It comes as the firm, which also specialises in medical negligence and personal injury cases throughout England and Wales, has been shortlisted for its work and expertise in the ‘Law Firm of the Year’ category.

Both Mr Petherbridge and Hudgell Solicitors will find out if they have won their awards when announced at a glittering ceremony on Thursday, April 27, at New Dock Hall, Leeds.

But the double shortlisting is high-recognition itself at such a prestigious awards event which recognises the country’s very best legal talent.

It comes on the back of a year in which the firm has continued to reap the rewards of following a focussed growth strategy, firmly cementing its position as a nationally recognised leader in its key work areas.

Short-listings recognise national brand and leading expertise

“To be shortlisted in both the Law Firm of the Year and the Rising Star categories is fantastic news for the firm and highlights the progress made again over the past 12 months,” said managing director Neil Hudgell.

“It underlines how we are now established as a leader in the fields of medical negligence and personal injury across the UK, with our reputation in London firmly established now.

“The recognition for Andrew is much deserved and is a reflection of both his vision and legal knowledge, and the success of our fast-growing civil liberties department has had in securing major national cases. Andrew has spearheaded this and deserves great credit.”

Judges considered how the Hudgell brand has become national on the back of a huge financial investment into freehold properties over the past 12 months in London (where its Fleet Street offices are close to The Royal Courts of Justice) in the heart of the legal district in Leeds, and in new three-storey, purpose built headquarters in Hull, East Yorkshire.Law firm of the year

They also considered how the firm had campaigned for better standards of health care – from birth to later life – and for greater commitment from all involved in the claims process towards rehabilitation and appropriate care for the injured.

It included a national awareness campaign around preventing abuse and neglect in care and residential homes, calling for the Government to debate in parliament whether CCTV use should be made compulsory.

The Love (Love our Vulnerable and Elderly) campaign called for the elderly to be loved, protected, respected and afforded their dignity at all times in care, securing national television, radio and newspaper coverage, and putting the issue onto the agenda at Westminster

The firm also supported mothers and babies across the UK in backing national charity Baby Lifeline with the launch of its new ‘Monitoring for Mums’ campaign – aimed at reducing death and injury rates of mothers and babies during birth.

Hudgell Solicitors representing families in civil liberties cases of national significance

Mr Petherbridge has led the rapidly growing Civil Liberties department to securing cases of national significance and importance.

The firm is currently acting on behalf of the families of the four victims of murderer Stephen Port, representing their interests as the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) investigates possible failings and missed opportunities by the Met Police to catch him and prevent deaths.

Other cases being handled by the team and led by Mr Petherbridge include representing the daughter of Jacqueline Oakes, who was murdered by ex-partner Marcus Musgrove. The case was the subject of IPCC findings last week which concluded that 19 officers and staff should face misconduct cases for failings in investigations into previous incidents of domestic abuse by Musgrove on Ms Oakes.

Mr Petherbridge and his team are also representing the family of Lewis Skelton of Hull, who was shot dead by police officers in the street last November. The team has also supported clients who have been wrongly accused of serious crimes including battery, murder, kidnapping, child neglect and firearms and drugs related crimes.

The Modern Claims Awards were launched following the huge success of Modern Claims Magazine and the Modern Claims Conference. The winners of these prestigious awards are chosen by a diverse range of judges, who represent each and every aspect of the claims industry.
