Friends Legal expands into Edinburgh

We are pleased to announce that we have expanded with the opening of a new Edinburgh office.

Our Edinburgh team, to be based in Leith’s Bonnington Bond, will be led by head of office Val Roberts, a well known personal injury law specialist.

She brings experience in high-value complex claims including fatal accidents and catastrophic injuries to the firm.

Roberts will also lead our new Eye Injury Negligence team, one of the UK’s only specialist teams in a rapidly growing area of litigation.

It is an area in which she has personal experience – in 2018 Roberts underwent lens-exchange surgery with a large High Street optical chain.

Her poor outcome and subsequent visual problems led to an interest in the elective refractive surgery industry.
