A London and Cardiff-based barrister has taken on a leading role for a national not-for-profit campaign group for injured people.

Stephen Glynn of 9 Gough Square chambers in Norwich Street, near Chancery Lane, has been elected to the executive committee of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

Stephen has particular experience in subtle brain injury cases, as well as expertise in claims for people who are ill because of exposure to asbestos at work. He has also worked on cases for survivors of child sexual abuse.

“I’m looking forward to helping APIL fight on behalf of injured people to ensure that they receive the compensation they deserve but also to work with insurers, the Government and other stakeholders to improve the claims process for all,” said Stephen.

“I’m particularly interested in effective and timely rehabilitation of injured parties as often the injured person just wants to get better and would sooner not have to wait for compensation. 

“I’m very excited to have been voted on to the executive committee of this brilliant organisation,” he said.
