Hudgell Solicitors recognised in The Times for civil liberties work

The Times ‘Best 250 Law Firms’ in England and Wales has included Hudgell Solicitors, based in Hull, in their list. 

The Times highlights the firm’s human rights work as they secure their fourth successive inclusion in the list.  

This accolade follows rankings and testimonials for the work of Hudgells’ legal teams in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners 2024 legal guides. 

The Times has commended Hudgells for its work in supporting clients with personal injury and clinical negligence claims for the past three years.

The Times has recognised Hudgell’s civil liberties department’s human rights work for its achievements. This marks the first commendation by The Times for the department’s work. The team represents clients in high-profile inquests and at public inquiries.

70 former postmasters had their names cleared in court with the help of Hudgells, as highlighted by The Times. These individuals were wrongfully prosecuted when accused of theft and false accounting. This was due to a glitch in the Post Office’s central computer system.  

The Times states that Hudgells have been at ‘the forefront’ of the case. It also cites Hudgell’s work representing more than 170 people injured in the Manchester Arena bombing. The report highlights the ‘packages if support, including dedicated rehabilitation services and financial assistance’ which were provided.  

Chief executive Rachel Di Clemente said: “The Times Best 250 Law Firms list is produced on the back of feedback from lawyers at other legal firms who see our work, understand the complexities and sensitivities of the cases we are involved in, and see how we support our clients to get them the best results. 

“To be recognised by our peers in this way is an impressive reflection of all we do and our teams should be rightfully proud of what they have achieved.”
