3PB’s Luke Ashby appointed as First Tier SEC Tribunal Judge

3PB’s personal injury barrister Luke Ashby has been appointed by the Senior President of Tribunals as a part-time Judge of the First-tier Tribunal (Social Entitlement Chamber). He will be hearing appeals concerning social security, support for asylum seekers as well as appeals against decisions of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

Luke – who was called to the Bar in 2007 – is highly regarded for his work in the field of personal injury. He will no doubt be able to use the expertise he has gained from dealing with claims for serious and life changing injuries in his new role.
