    Rina Gokani Thomas


    Rina gained a law degree with a 2:1 and, after completing the legal practice course, she joined Lyons Davidson as a paralegal in the Defendant Insurance Litigation department in 2006.  She handled a case load of fast track cases, while assisting a partner in the department with multi track and catastrophic loss cases relating to road traffic accidents, and claims under employers’ liability and public liability.

    After qualifying as a solicitor in 2011, Rina moved to the Civil Litigation/Dispute Resolution department, working in the professional negligence team.  She handles a wide range of claims arising out of breach of contract, misrepresentation and negligent advice by professionals, including claims against solicitors, surveyors, veterinary practitioners and engineers.

    Rina strives to find the best way forward to resolve a client’s claim, whether it be by conducting telephone negotiations or attending and conducting her own mediations, or through the court process.  Keeping the client at the heart of the case means that Rina focuses on what is most important to the individual client when considering settlement proposals and she finds her prior experience working in defendant litigation means she has a real insight and understanding as to how opponents approach settlement.

    Rina uses her extensive litigation experience to host regular file meetings with paralegals in the contract resolution department to review cases and advise on how best to bring claims to a satisfactory resolution.
