About Robyn Hawxby

Robyn Hawxby qualified as a solicitor in 2002 and joined Pryers in 2008, becoming partner in 2013.

Highly experienced working with clients with brain and spinal cord injuries, with a particular interest in stroke claims and neurological injuries, Robyn has handled a diverse range of clinical negligence and catastrophic personal injury claims – some of which she has settled for multi-millions of pounds.

The natural progression of continuing client care sees Robyn act as a professional court of protection deputy for clients who need assistance managing large sums of compensation, after their claim has settled. This involves advising clients on implementing the recommendations made by experts during their claim, with things such as:

  • Employing carers;
  • Buying property;
  • Arranging further rehabilitation and therapies; and
  • Advising on investments and budget planning.

The role involves providing practical guidance and support as well as professional advice and management. Robyn’s ability to offer this advice enables our clients to have a continued relationship with the firm and ensures a smooth progression after the claim has settled.
