Canter Levin & Berg on Neurosupport Legal Advice Panel

We’re delighted to be on the Legal Advice Panel for Neurosupport, being launched today here in Liverpool.

Staff from Canter Levin & Berg will be in attendance this afternoon at the official launch of the new Neurosupport Legal Advice Panel. The panel has been created by the Liverpool-based national neurological conditions charity Neurosupport to put people who have been affected by a neurological condition and their families, friends and carers, in touch with the kinds of specialist legal advice they need.


The Legal Advice Panel features five law firms who have been recognised as leaders in the provision of legal services to people who are dealing with the effects and implications of neurological conditions. As one of the firms on the panel, our solicitors and legal executives will be available to offer expert advice to people with a neurological condition in a variety of areas of law:


  • If someone has been diagnosed with a neurological condition that has been triggered, or made worse by, an injury sustained in an accident where they were not at fault, then our Personal Injury department can offer advice and assistance when it comes to make a personal injury compensation claim. Membership of the Neurosupport panel is a recognition of the expertise our Personal Injury Solicitors have when it comes to dealing with complex, high value claims, such as those made by people who have been diagnosed with a neurological condition after an accident.

  • A neurological condition can put a strain on family life. Our Family Law Solicitors will be providing advice and advocacy on the impact a neurological condition might have on your partner, your children and your other relatives.

  • Our Employment Solicitors will provide advice on employment matters, including entering work after being diagnosed with a neurological condition, telling your employer about your condition and what to do if you have problems in the workplace.

  • The lawyers in our Private Client Department will be available if you are looking for advice on preparing for later life if you are suffering from a neurological condition, including making a lasting power of attorney and dealing with the court of protection. They will also be able to help when it comes to drafting a will and dealing with probate.

The Legal Advice Panel launch is being held at Neurosupport’s office on Norton Street in Liverpool City Centre from 2pm today. The event is open to anyone with a neurological condition as well as case managers, other neurological charities, legal and medical experts.
