Lee’s expertise includes working closely with seriously injured people and their families, leading them through the claims process and ensuring they get the best treatment, rehabilitation and care so that they can get their lives back on track as quickly as possible.
Lee joined Clarke Willmott in 2000 after studying at Exeter. He has specialised in injury work throughout his career. Lee is widely recognised for his expertise in handling brain and spinal injury claims. He is described in the Legal 500 directory as: “calm, measured, intelligent, unflappable and client focused.”
