About Hugh Johnson

I am a clinical negligence solicitor conducting complex and high-value claims, with a particular interest in claims involving spinal cord injury, whether as a result of failed diagnosis, substandard surgery or inadequate management of pre-existing conditions such as mental health care.  For 17 years, I have assisted Claimants to rebuild their lives following life changing injuries.

Between 2014 and 2018, I held the post of  Group Secretary of the APIL Spinal Injuries Group, before being elected by members as the Coordinator.  From 2018 - 2022, I then assisted with the coordination of APIL policy for spinal injury and with the organisation of educational seminars for members.

I am a Partner at Stewarts - the UK's largest litigation only law firm, which specialises in high value and complex disputes for both personal and commercial clients. The clinical negligence team at Stewarts is noted for providing "a Rolls Royce service to clients" and is top ranked by the two leading practitioner guides, the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners:

Legal 500:

(2020) "Hugh Johnson has a first class brain, charming manner and diligent approach to all his cases"

Chambers & Partners: 

(2022) "He is understanding and very knowledgeable, he handles the cases with compassion and he devotes his time to his clients."

(2020) [Hugh is] "extremely hard-working, with a good knowledge of the law and good tactical instincts"  'clients say: "His preparation of cases is meticulous."'
