Statement re PIP victims' victory in Paris Court of Appeal

Today's decision from the Paris Court of Appeal is a significant breakthrough for thousands of women who have suffered as a result of the PIP implants scandal, who have been fighting for justice for over a decade. This ruling against TUV Rheinland - the company which certified these defective implants - is an important step, but there is much more work to be done. In the UK alone, it is estimated that close to 50,000 women have suffered as a result of PIP implants. In the UK, Henderson & Jones is continuing to fight for compensation for the patients of Hospital Medical Group through High Court proceedings against the former directors of Hospital Medical Group, the Wilkes Partnership LLP and Barclays Bank, to recover monies that were deliberately put beyond the reach of thousands of PIP victims."

We were also delighted to welcome three new team members.

The Devil's in the Detail

In November we achieved an excellent resolution at mediation in a claim relating to unpaid introduction fees, for which the assignor company had been seeking payment for 4 years prior to assignment to H&J. H&J achieved a great result, resulting in significant sums being paid to the wronged party - and a real feeling of justice having been served. This result goes to show that the devil truly is in the detail, and that a fresh pair of eyes and a robust approach can really change the dynamic in dispute resolution, with excellent results.
