Paul Paxton has been listed for his key role in heading up the most high-profile negligence claim of the last decade following his representation of individuals injured in the rollercoaster crash at Alton Towers during 2015.

This annual list is one of the legal industry’s highest accolades and is drawn from top class lawyers in litigation, finance, energy, real estate, life sciences and regulation.
