Robert Curry, Litigation & Senior Partner

Robert Curry

Litigation Partner

Robert Curry is a leading litigator in Cambridgeshire with over 30 years experience in general and commercial litigation. His long experience and regular appearances in court representing our clients resulted in Robert having a lead role with the local judiciary in the interpretation and implementation of the current Civil Procedure Rules. Robert is particularly well-known for his successes in personal injury litigation. He has acted in numerous claims for Fatal Accident Act damages, loss of limbs and serious brain injury cases for victims.

Thank you Robert Curry for your patience and thoroughness throughout this difficult episode in my life, which I am sure has led to a higher personal injury compensation figure than I would have achieved elsewhere.

Other cases have included:

  • A number of large settlements in excess of £1,000,000.
  • A successful contested three-day trial of liability.
  • A number of substantial claims to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

Robert has a reputation for bringing energy and dynamism to his cases. While he is approachable and amenable, our clients appreciate his robust advice and strong negotiating skills.

Until recently, Robert was regularly appointed as a Court of Protection Deputy, or the trustee of a Personal Injury Trust, following successful settlement of cases.  He is also appointed as trustee in many Family Trusts.

A huge thank you, Robert, for all your hard work and dedication with Dad’s case over the past few years. You have been brilliant!
Bron and Oscar Stratton

Money surely cannot replace the loss but Robert Curry’s help in our personal injury case has been crucial and has ensured not only our father’s comfort but also the security and stability of the whole family.

Our thanks to Robert Curry for picking up our road accident case in difficult circumstances. We wish that we had come to you first.
