Mark Belfield

Director

 

Mark joined Thorneycroft Solicitors in 1998 and became a Director in 2011. Mark heads up the Large Loss team, looking after serious and catastrophic injury claims. Still a fee earner, he also inputs into more involved cases and advising on direction and policy resulting from legislative changes.

I would like to say that it has been so refreshing and positive to work with you and your team as a case manager. It’s evident that we all work together as a team, maintaining effective and efficient communication keeping the client always at the heart of all discussions, and always finding ways to progress the client and enable that individual to have a good quality of life. It’s a real pleasure to work with Thorneycroft solicitors.
