Sam Aynsley

Practice Overview

Sam recently joined 30 Park Place after practising for six years in the North West of England. During that time he developed a diverse civil practice including a significant amount of paperwork instructions always completed to a quick turnaround.

Sam accepts instructions across most areas of civil law, in particular personal injury, clinical negligence, and commercial chancery, along with Court of Protection and inquest work. He endeavours to be as accessible as possible to professional clients and is viewed by many of his instructing solicitors as an extension to their own team, attending ‘pleadings clinics’ and conferences at solicitors’ offices and being readily available to assist those instructing with any number of queries throughout the course of proceedings.

Sam accepts instructions on a CFA basis where appropriate and travels nationwide to attend court hearings.
