Steve Webb, who qualified as a solicitor in 1990, joined TSP in 1988 as a trainee (known as an Articled Clerk back then!). He leads the Litigation team which deals with Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence, Civil and Commercial Dispute Resolution and Employment Law.
Steve, who has been a Litigation solicitor for over 25 years, is local to the Colchester area, and attended the Colchester Royal Grammar School before going on to gain his Law degree at Leeds University. He studied for his professional exams at Nottingham Trent University and joined TSP as an articled clerk in 1988. He became a partner in the firm in 2001, and in 2006, when the structure of Thompson Smith and Puxon changed, he became a director of Steven J. Webb Ltd, a corporate partner in TSP. Steve was Managing Partner for three years between 2016 and 2018.
Following qualification, Steve worked predominantly on cases involving Personal Injury but now deals with cases covering all aspects of both Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence. In particular, he has worked on a number of high value cases involving brain injury.
Steve says “I have thoroughly enjoyed helping the victims of accidents for almost 30 years. I have represented thousands of people, some with relatively minor injuries and some whose symptoms have been life-changing. It is very rewarding to be able to solve some of the problems of people who are often at a low point in their lives. Financial compensation obviously does not take away pain and suffering but it is often crucial to the lives of the victim and his or her family.
I have also been privileged to be able to develop a team of high quality lawyers, currently four of us specifically in the Personal Injury team, and six who practice Clinical/Medical Negligence law to support the increasing number of victims we represent.”
Steve is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury panel and an accredited Personal Injury specialist. He has been a member of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) since 1995 and is an APIL Senior Litigator. All of the Personal Injury Lawyers in Steve’s team are APIL members and one is an APIL Senior Litigator.
Thompson Smith and Puxon is recommended for both its Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury work and Steve is recommended for his work in both practice areas.
In 2020/21 the Legal 500 said: ‘Quietly and tenaciously delivering results’, Thompson Smith and Puxon’s team is led by Steve Webb and handles a mixture of both complex medical work and serious personal injury matters. Sam Welham is experienced in both spheres of personal injury and clinical negligence and has an employment law background to assist with claims relating to workplace stress. Clients have high praise for ‘superstar’ Stacey Anderson, who specialises in clinical negligence work, focusing particularly on cerebral palsy cases.
In 2019 the Legal 500 said the following about the firm’s Clinical Negligence work: “Thompson Smith and Puxon’s clinical negligence department is ‘a dedicated and courteous team‘ which handles a wide range of matters and is known for securing significant settlements and compensation for clients. ‘Superb‘ practice head Steve Webb handles high-value brain injury cases and is also experienced in personal injury matters. ‘Tenacious’ Stacey Anderson is another core member of the team and is highlighted for her ‘very good feel for settlement offers and parameters’.”
They also said the following about the firm’s Personal Injury practice “The ‘great’ personal injury department at Thompson Smith and Puxon handles an array of matters including accidents at work, road traffic accidents, and trips and slips. Led by Steve Webb, the team also has experience in medical negligence and covers hospital and dental mistakes and psychiatric shock.”
In his spare time Steve enjoys playing golf, running and cycling and has a keen interest in cricket. He played regularly for the West Bergholt Cricket Club for a number of years, but nowadays (according to Steve) is better suited to watching rather than playing! However, he did represent TSP in the Solicitors v Auctioneers 100 Year Anniversary Match which took place in June 2014 at Castle Park, helping to raise over £5,000 for charity. He has also run the Colchester half-marathon on two occasions, again to raise money for charitable causes.
