A FAREHAM law firm which specialises in winning compensation is to change hands.

Hayward Baker helps people to win compensation after an accident, or to reopen claims where the person is not happy with the amount of compensation received. 

It will be majority-owned and run by Samuel Dorne, who has worked with the firm for nearly five years.  

The firm’s co-founder, Keith Hayward, will continue to own a small share of the company and work alongside Sam for the next three years.    

Sam said: ‘Together, this team of specialist lawyers have developed a caring firm, able to respond to the fast-changing legal environment. 

‘People think it’s much easier to win compensation than it is, particularly when taking on difficult insurance companies or large airlines with deep pockets, who often use London lawyers to try and thwart claims.  That’s where our lawyers make such a positive difference to the deserving claimants.’
