Elena Leon joined ERT in February 2015. She has over 22 years’ experience in legal practice and qualified as a Solicitor in 2005.

She began her legal career as a Legal Secretary in 1993, progressing to become a Legal Executive eight years later. Elena went on to complete the LLB at UCE in Birmingham followed by the LPC at The College of Law in Birmingham.

Elena has vast experience in handling personal injury matters for both a Claimant and Defendant perspective. This has enabled her to consider all aspects of a claim and to see things from both perspectives. Whilst acting on behalf of Defendants, the claims have predominantly consisted of EL/PL matters for manufacturers and the leisure industry and she has also handled PL claims on behalf of Commercial Properties and Managing Agents.

Over the last 18 months, Elena has successfully defended a number of claims to trial, with 6 out of 6 wins. A number of claims were withdrawn with recovery of costs as the claims were either ill-founded or they had a fraud element to them which she uncovered.
