Renaissance Legal, specialists in legal advice to families and carers of disabled and vulnerable people, has announced the launch of a new service offering.

The Brighton-based team welcome benefits experts Jayne Knights and Amy Swinnerton to its growing team, who will be offering both existing and new clients of the firm advice on benefits eligibility, claims and appeals.

The new benefits offering builds on Renaissance Legal’s reputation for providing clear, transparent advice to families of disabled and vulnerable people, helping them understand their options and access truly specialist advice.

Over the past few years, the award-winning team has worked increasingly in collaboration with a network of other professionals for the benefit of its clients, and the new benefits service is in response to demands from clients for help in this area.

Philip Warford, Managing Director, said: “We take great care to signpost our clients to the very best specialists, who we trust to provide families with the right advice, delivered with care. The launch of our new benefits service is a natural extension to our core legal practice. We are excited to have Jayne and Amy join our team and know their expertise will be of enormous value to the clients we support”.

Jayne and Amy join the firm as Consultants on 1 April 2018 and will see clients in the firm’s central Brighton offices, as well as offering home visits in Brighton and Hove.

Jayne Knights said:

Amy and I are passionate about demystifying benefits, and with changes in the system, the need for advice and support is greater than ever. Working under the Renaissance Legal brand was a natural fit for us, as the clients they work with often have complicated circumstances where it’s vital that they are signposted to the benefits they are entitled to and supported through the process”. 

Amy and Jayne can be contacted at the firm’s Brighton office, and by email: benefits@renaissancelegal.co.uk
