Why choose Slater and Gordon as your legal representatives?

Hourglass is the only charity focused on the abuse and neglect of older people. We're proud to work with them, offering much needed financial support through sponsorship and joining calls for a public inquiry into the Government's handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. In addition, we're proud to offer expert legal guidance and support to vulnerable older individuals and their families. We strive to ensure that we provide the high level of service our clients would expect from Hourglass' legal partners and ensure the best possible outcome is achieved.

Highly experienced

Slater and Gordon has highly specialist teams in a range of legal fields including personal injury, such as abuse or neglect and medical negligence in care homes in addition to a specialist wills, tax, trust and probate team. We've been involved in some of the most high-profile and ground-breaking cases.

Given this high level of experience, we fully understand the difficulties which can be faced, and this enables us to provide a bespoke legal service as well as the practical support and guidance needed.

Strong reputation

We have a strong reputation for achieving outstanding results for our vulnerable older clients, as well as ensuring that the best available treatment and rehabilitation is also obtained. Independent legal guides such as Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 have ranked our teams highly over the years and consider many of our experts to be leaders in their field. Over the years, we've also won and been shortlisted in a number of prestigious legal awards such as the Personal Injury Awards, Manchester Legal Awards, Modern Claim Awards, Wales Legal Awards and the Liverpool Law Society Awards.

Medical team of nurses

Our team, which spans across England, Scotland and Wales, also includes nurses who are able to offer bespoke medical advice and guidance in addition to the legal expertise provided by our specialist lawyers.

Treatment and rehabilitation support

In cases which involve serious injuries, the sooner that rehabilitation and treatment begins, the better the outcome will be. That's why we make it our priority when someone suffers a serious injury.

We work with some of the best case managers and treatment providers in the UK to ensure the treatment our clients receive is the best available. We seek early interim payments to ensure there's funding to begin as soon as possible, giving you the best chance to maximise recovery.

Confidentiality in cases of abuse

Our specialist lawyers understand it takes bravery to stand up to abusers and guarantee confidentiality and anonymity to all our clients.

You should rest assured that our experts take confidentiality very seriously and for those who've been affected by abuse, even in high-profile cases, we will protect you.

No financial risk for cases involving injury

The vast majority of personal injury and medical negligence cases are funded by a No Win No Fee agreement. What this basically means is if you lose your case, there will be no cost to you so there's no financial risk.

A bespoke wills, trusts and probate service

We can offer peace of mind to our older, and sometimes vulnerable clients, to ensure that their affairs are in order, and are protected from potential economic and/or financial abuse.

Our team of experts can ensure vulnerable clients are independently advised of their choices in terms of will writing, arranging Lasting Powers of Attorney and/or lifetime Trusts. Our work to establish independence includes mental capacity assessments, ensuring there's no undue influence and that all our clients' decisions are their own. Everyone's needs are different so we're able to offer advice which is bespoke for each individual's needs.
