Francis is recognised by Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 as a Leading Individual in the field of personal injury and he is praised for being “skilled communicator and tenacious negotiator who offers huge support to his clients, with a clear focus on their needs” (Chambers & Partners 2020).

Francis won ‘Insurance Individual of the Year’ as part of the Legal 500 Awards UK 2020. This is an extremely impressive achievement and is testament to the good work that Francis and the asb aspire team do every day for their clients.

Francis has dealt with a significant number of high value claims, many resulting in seven-figure settlements. Most recently he was involved in a child catastrophic injury case which secured the highest personal injury compensation award in UK history. Francis’ interest extends far beyond maximising compensation awards however, as one of his key concerns is to enable the effective rehabilitation of clients.

Having developed an enviable network of professionals in the south east to support his clients in their recovery and improve their quality of life, Francis founded the innovative Brain Injury Group (BIG), a national organisation for brain injury lawyers which was launched in 2011, where he remains actively involved as Director of Training.

He was formerly Chair of Headway East Sussex (previously Headway Hurstwood Park), a charity providing care, rehabilitation and support services at both a day centre and in the local community to those affected by brain injury.  He is also a founder and Chair of the Sussex Acquired Brain Injury Forum (SABIF), an active organisation promoting awareness and services for brain injury in the Sussex community.

Francis is an accredited member of the Head Injury Solicitors List, and a qualified mediator. He was previously awarded the National Lawyer Award for inspiration and innovation in the field of brain injury by UKABIF.  He has written numerous articles on brain injuries and rehabilitation and regularly speaks at national conferences.
