Hugh James renews partnership with Walking With The Wounded

Walking With The Wounded is pleased to announce that top 100 UK law firm, Hugh James, have renewed their 12-month partnership with the charity.

Hugh James first became official supporters of Walking With The Wounded (‘WWTW’) in March 2021. Since then, WWTW and Hugh James have worked together to educate their staff, clients and supporters on how they can do their bit for the armed forces community.

WWTW was invited to speak at Hugh James’ annual military conference in October, with WWTW CEO Fergus Williams delivering a presentation on the work and impact of WWTW throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and why their ongoing work remains important.

WWTW also provided a mental health training seminar for Hugh James colleagues to support the law firm’s aim of better supporting their clients’ mental health. Carolyn Brown, Clinical Lead for WWTW’s mental health programme, Head Start, talked about mental health within an armed forces context as well as explaining which services are available for veterans. This was followed by a powerful talk from WWTW beneficiary, Shaun.

Hugh James is a top 100 UK law firm with more than 60 years of experience. Their team of expert military solicitors cover a full range of areas, including military deafness, and cold and heat injuries. They are headquartered in Cardiff and have an office in London.

Fergus Williams, CEO, Walking With The Wounded commented: “We are thrilled to have Hugh James as a partner once again this year.  With their support, our team will be able to continue to deliver our innovative, life-changing services to those who served and their families.  We would like to thank Hugh James and their team for championing the charity and look forward to working with them once again.”

Simon Ellis, Partner, Hugh James commented: “It’s an honour for us to continue working in partnership with Walking With The Wounded – a fantastic charity, which is providing invaluable support to veterans and their families. The transition to civilian life is a difficult one for so many service leavers and we’re committed to helping the team as best we can in assisting the most vulnerable in the military community.”
