Adrian Denson

Chief Legal Officer

Our Chief Legal Officer, Adrian Denson, is a renowned expert in the field of serious injury law. He is recognised for specialising in cases involving traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and complex polytrauma and has handled some of the most complex and high value cases in the country.

Adrian is highly respected throughout the industry for his ability as a technical legal expert and for his outstanding track record in securing excellent outcomes for clients. Adrian takes time and care to know his clients on a personal level; to better understand their individual needs, aims and motivations, and ensure that the claim is built around meeting them.

As a senior leader at Fletchers, Adrian is respected and highly esteemed by his colleagues across the business. All of our legal teams report into Adrian, and he also leads our regulatory and compliance functions. He possesses deep insight and understanding of what is needed to succeed in this incredibly personal and emotive part of the legal sector. With years of experience behind him, Adrian is a leader that so many look up to; he inspires our lawyers to be relentless and driven in their efforts to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients, and regularly reminds them of what a privilege it is to legally represent injured clients.

When it comes to fighting for his clients, Adrian champions relentlessness and fearlessness as key attributes. He will look to collaborate with opponents wherever possible in order to progress cases. But when collaboration fails, he is prepared to litigate and fight cases wherever necessary, whilst simultaneously encouraging his teams to work with the same fearless mentality. It is this tenacious attitude that has helped Fletchers gain an enviable reputation for taking on very difficult cases and winning them over and over again.
