Peter Garsden, Principal of Cheadle Hulme based Abney Garsden McDonald solicitors, who have the largest dedicated Abuse compensation department in the country, has been nominated in the 2012 Eclipse Proclaim Personal Injury Awards.
The annual awards which are in their fifth year provide a unique opportunity to highlight and celebrate the excellence of individuals and organisations across the personal injury claims sector.
After the firm won Personal Injury Team of the Year in the 2011 awards, Peter has been nominated in the Claimant Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year category. He has devoted the last 18 years of his professional life to supporting the victims of child abuse and has been Lead Solicitor in over 25 different Group Actions involving over 1000 Claimants.
Commenting on the awards, Peter Garsden said: “To be in the finals of this prestigious competition with such esteemed company is indeed an honour. The announcement was so much more exciting, as it came on the same day as hearing that we had won our Legal Aid campaign following a government U-turn on scrapping the Supplementary Legal Aid scheme. I would certainly like to wish all the other finalists the very best of luck.”
The winners will be announced at an awards dinner to be held on the 14th November in London’s Riverbank Park Plaza hotel.
