Doncaster solicitor in line for top legal award

John McQuater, a partner and head of litigation at Atherton Godfrey Solicitors, is one of six lawyers to be shortlisted for Partner of The Year in the Yorkshire Legal Awards.

The awards, which are now in their 17th year, aim to recognise the outstanding legal talent across the entire Yorkshire region.

Mr McQuater is highly regarded for his work on complex spine and brain injury cases. He was recently awarded accreditation as a brain injury specialist, becoming one of only 23 solicitors in England and the only one in South Yorkshire to receive the accolade.

He is an accomplished author and provides extensive training for personal injury lawyers throughout the UK.

Mr McQuater was named Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year in 2011 and has been highly ranked in legal directories for the past 7 years.

Commenting on his nomination, Mr McQuater said: “I have spent more than 30 years working to secure justice for those severely injured through negligence. It is a great honour to have my work recognised in this way.”

The awards will take place at New Dock Hall in Leeds on Thursday 12 October.
