THE TAKINGS of a seminar on personal injury law have been donated to a charity which helps head injury victims.
The Headway National Head Injuries Association was the grateful recipient of the £1,500 raised at the seminar held jointly by common law set Goldsmith Building and forensic accountants Frenkel Topping Structured Settlements.
It focused on claims involving future loss, structured settlements or special needs trusts, and around 75 solicitors and claims managers attended.
The chambers was represented by Robert Leonard, who spoke on multipliers, and
Andrew Ritchie, who discussed pension loss. Frenkel Topping also provided two speakers.
Senior clerk Edith Robertson described the seminar as a "great success" and said the set was planning a second charity raising seminar, this time on family law, in the autumn.
Goldsmith Building head of chambers John Griffith Williams QC joined Leonard to hand the cheque to Headway chief executive Ian Garrow.
