Foot Anstey’s medical negligence practice sets sail as Enable Law


Foot Anstey’s medical negligence practice has become a separate business entity within the Foot Anstey Group.

Known as Enable Law, Foot Anstey says that the firm will represent the largest medical negligence practice in the South West and will provide greater clarity and support for clients. The new firm, which also includes personal injury and mental capacity services, is made up over 80 healthcare specialists, including five partners and six legal directors.

Rob Antrobus, head of Enable Law, said: “We are really proud of our new identity with Enable Law. This project, which has been developed over time with input from our clients, employees, and partner organisations, is much more reflective of the work that we do and will help us reach more people who may not have been aware they could access support.”

John Westwell, managing partner of Foot Anstey, said: “Making Enable Law a separate business entity provides greater clarity between the firm’s work for businesses and individuals. Foot Anstey’s focus is on continued delivery of our strategy to provide a client-centric service for our regional, national and international clients, particularly in our core sectors.

“The new branding and digital presence will provide the new entity with the platform for further growth.”

In 2016/17 the business posted revenue of £8.5 million. Earlier in this year partner Mike Bird was recognised in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 for his work on significant group action in Cornwall, representing over 200 women who received negligent care from gynaecologist Rob Jones.
