Lisa Smith


Lisa joined Thorneycroft Solicitors in August 2016 having spent 17 years in a leading law firm in Manchester where she specialised in high value road traffic accidents, fatal accidents and employers liability claims including brain injuries, spinal injuries, and severe orthopaedic injuries. Lisa is a Barrister and was called to the Bar in 1999. She is a member of the Bar Council of England and Wales and the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. Lisa’s ethos in relation to her work is that the client always comes first and is highly regarded as tenacious and dedicated in her work. She has considerable interest in those injured in motorcycle accidents and has attended many motorcycle events to promote awareness to those who have been injured.

Outside of work Lisa enjoys skiing and horse riding, supporting Manchester City, spending time with her family, and walking her beloved Jack Russell, Shnibes!


I worked with Lisa on a very tricky amputation case involving emotional issues and a 7 figure value. She is highly professional, a great guide, hard working and successful for her clients.

- Andrew Ritchie QC

Lisa is a superb Barrister who excels in putting clients at ease, even in the most complex and difficult of cases. She is well organised, and dogged in her approach with opponent solicitors. If I was involved in an accident I would want Lisa in my corner!

- Louise Green, Barrister

It is a pleasure to work with Lisa Smith, a lawyer who easily grasps the issues that create difficulties for case managers and works collaboratively to achieve the best outcome for our mutual clients. Lisa deals with her clients with dignity, humour and great understanding. It is apparent that she understands the process thoroughly and genuinely cares about our clients.
