Brethertons have announced their continued commitment to Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research (SMSR) by signing up to our new corporate partnership programme - with a shared vision to support our ongoing fundraising drive towards funding SCI research of the future.

About Brethertons

At Brethertons, we are recognised for our personal and expert approach to your legal needs. Our story began more than 200 years ago when Brethertons was established as a firm providing legal services for the local community. We are proud of our past; and we are proud of adapting and moving with the times to become the modern, reliable legal firm we are today.

We operate locally, nationally and internationally, from our bright and modern offices in Banbury, Bicester, and Rugby,  and are proud to be one of the biggest firms in Oxfordshire and Warwickshire. Our clients rely on our award-winning Family, Conveyancing, Serious injury and Private client teams to support them through every step of life. Our expertise is apparent throughout our Debt Recovery, Dispute Resolution, Residential Leasehold teams and more.

Commenting on the new partnership, Jon Rees, Partner, Serious Injuries, said: “Brethertons are proud to renew and expand their association with Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research, and now for 2024/25 as Gold Corporate Partners. We are pleased to be associated with the important and impactful work SMSR does to help all people who live with or may come to live with spinal cord injury.

"We are always keen on exploring how we can support the often smaller and more immediately impactful projects and initiatives that SMSR specialise in taking forward. It is often those smaller needs that have the biggest impact on people’s day to day lives when they are not being met. But addressing those often-overlooked needs can also often have the biggest impact on the lives of people struggling to regain independence after spinal cord injury.

"We are passionate about helping who we can and where we can; and in going beyond the specialised spinal cord injuries litigation expertise we have built our reputation on. We wish SMSR continued success as it continues its important work in making a real difference where it is needed most.”

SMSR Corporate & Community Fundraiser, Kate Favell, said:

"Having worked with Jon and his team at Brethertons for a number of years, we are delighted they have chosen to become our Gold Partner for 2024/25. We have always appreciated their commitment to seeking the best for their clients, and showing compassion for the challenges they face by supporting our research. We are looking forward to growing our relationship to improve the quality of life for people living with SCI."
