Ashley Webb, Solicitor & Associate Director
Ashley qualified as a solicitor from the University of Essex in 1995 and started his career working in Southampton and London on both Claimant and Defendant claims across a wide range of personal injury types. He later moved to work in Portsmouth managing mainly Claimant personal injury cases including Road Traffic Accidents, Public Liability and Employers Liability.
He joined Harris Fowler Solicitors in 2001 and quickly built up a client base working on higher value cases with severe orthopaedic injuries.
Ashley is part of the specialist Medical and Dental Negligence Team and his case load includes dealing with late and inaccurate diagnoses of conditions and surgical and prescription errors.
What inspired you to get into law?
Ashley relishes the challenge of getting to grips with complex issues and turning them into powerful and effective solutions to get a winning result for his clients.
He finds his work highly rewarding knowing that he’s helping people. Ashley likes to get to know and support his clients throughout their rehabilitation during the process of the claim.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Ashley feels that one of the most rewarding parts of his role at Harris Fowler is representing clients who have often had their cases discontinued by other firms and through commitment and hard work, secure a successful outcome for them.
What do you do for fun?
Ashley loves the thrill of surfing whether it’s at home on the north Devon coast, Mexico or Costa Rica. He enjoys mountain biking on the Quantock Hills in Somerset and for fun collects vintage longboards.
In keeping with the ethos at Harris Fowler, where we adopt a robust and thorough approach for our clients, Ashley represented a four year-old girl who had been attacked by a dog. Her previous solicitors had discontinued her case on the basis that they felt there were poor prospects of success. Ashley was asked to review the previous file and took on the case. Although there were numerous complex issues, including the fact that the young girl’s injuries were life threatening, he was able to secure a successful outcome for the family who received in excess of £60,000 compensation.
