Testimonial

I'd like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to you for your assistance in resolving the matter in my favour. Your calm, professional yet determined approach assured me that I had the best person and firm representing me, with the right experience to ensure I left with the best package possible. Wish you all the best for the future and will certainly recommend you to friends and family.

Nina was recommended to me by a friend who suggested I needed a “good lawyer” based on the inefficient exit process from my previous employer.
From the outset nothing was too much trouble and put me at ease in what was a challenging time. Nina was both pragmatic and professional and was able to fully negotiate my release from my contract, providing me with reputational protection in the market place and also ensure that there was clarity on both sides as to the restrictive covenants in place. The negotiation of these was done expediently and provided me clear guidance on how I could engage moving forward with new opportunities and gave me the confidence that my career had not been damaged by my former employer.

Penny Langdon

Solicitor

Accident & Injury

020 8290 7958 Email Penny

Penny is a Personal injury Solicitor working within the Dispute Resolution Department

Penny has many years’ experience in dealing with accident and injury claims and in achieving excellent results for her clients, the majority of whom are referred to her by recommendation.

In addition to her Solicitor’s qualifications, Penny also holds an honours degree in History and a Private pilot’s licence. In her spare time she enjoys travelling, flying, reading and classic films.

“After having lunch at a local garden centre, my husband Mr W who is elderly, disabled and walks with the aid of a wheelie walker was walking out through the automatic doors when they closed unexpectedly, knocking him to the ground. His main injury was a fractured clavicle but after a 7 week stay in hospital his mobility was never properly recovered. Under the circumstances we felt some that some financial compensation should be due to us. Wellers have acted for us in the past and so we went to them and our case was taken on by Penny Langdon. Penny set to work vigorously, coming down to see us and going to the garden centre to take measurements and photographs of the doors. We felt that we really could trust her to reach a good conclusion. She worked through all the legal procedures and a settlement of £10,000.00 was made. We were very happy with that and really grateful to Penny for the friendly way she encouraged us and obtained a fair settlement”.

–– Mrs W, May 28 2014

“Following a fall in a supermarket I contacted Wellers solicitors and Penny Langdon was assigned to my case. I was very impressed with the service I received from Penny. She was exceptionally kind and supportive throughout the process. She was very good at explaining things in a way I could understand. My claim turned out to be quite a complicated one and she worked hard to get a fair settlement of nearly £10,000 for me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation”.

–– Mrs C , May 2014

“Penny Langdon was dogged in her determination to secure fair compensation for me after my accident.

I fell over in the street after tripping on a broken pavement bollard and shattered my kneecap. I spent 5 days in hospital having my knee reconstructed and a long time in recovery. The Borough Council where I had the accident tried to evade their responsiblity but Penny was having none of it and they eventually admitted 80% liability.

I was delighted with the pay-out Penny secured for me and I cannot thank her enough for her kind support and efforts on my behalf”.

–– Mrs B, May 2014

“I received exceptional support from Penny Langdon after suffering a fall in a supermarket. I was extremely impressed with the support and information I received from Penny and the team.

Excellent support and an excellent result”.

It was a very distressing time for me, and I found Penny to be very efficient and professional in dealing with my claim.

Penny was very through in putting together my claim and I very happy that my claim was settled for a six figure amount. Thank you Penny and well done…”
