Robyn Hawxby qualified as a solicitor in 2002. She joined Pryers in 2008 as an Associate, after working at another local law firm, where she had developed experience in claims for brain and spinal cord injuries.

Over the years Robyn has dealt with a diverse range of clinical negligence and catastrophic personal injury claims – some of which she has settled for multi-millions of pounds.

Robyn became a partner at Pryers in 2013.

Areas of Specialism

When she first joined, Pryers was a small team that specialised in clinical negligence and personal injury claims. As Pryers grew, specialist sub-teams were formed, each focusing on specific areas of clinical negligence. Robyn heads one of the sub-teams and her particular interest is in stroke claims, spinal injuries and neurological injuries.

Robyn, and the team she leads, all work together to support clients in their claims. They collaborate with experts and barristers, and share their experiences to achieve the best outcomes for their clients.

The natural progression of continuing client care sees Robyn to act as a professional deputy for clients who need assistance managing large sums of compensation, after their claim has settled. This involves advising clients on implementing the recommendations made by experts during their claim, with things such as:

  • Employing carers;
  • Buying property;
  • Arranging further rehabilitation and therapies; and
  • Advising on investments and budget planning.

The role involves providing practical guidance and support as well as professional advice and management. Robyn’s ability to offer this advice enables our clients to have a continued relationship with the firm and ensures a smooth progression after the claim has settled.

Robyn is also a member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme.

Personal Life

Robyn is married with one son and lives on the outskirts of York. She loves the outdoors and spends as much of her free time as she can get away with running, walking, cycling and swimming in the hills and lakes of northern England.


Robyn Hawxby is adept at advising claimants on birth and brain injury cases, including cerebral palsy claims. She has a strong knowledge of issues regarding failure to diagnose and negligent care.

I am very happy with the service provided and the outcome.

Each time I spoke to anyone I was always made to feel I was the important client, I was listened to and was treated with respect.

Level of service bypassed all expectations. It was a pleasure meeting you.
