We are continuing to operate remotely during the Covid-19 public health emergency. While we have closed offices, we can be contacted by email (, telephone (all or numbers will continue to be answered), the online chat feature below, or through a variety of video conferencing platforms such as zoom, skype and teams.
Courts are continuing to operate, and we are still running claims for clients. There has been no change to time limits for commencing proceedings. The health of our employees, and clients, particularly with respiratory diseases, is a central concern. Through telephone, email and video based communications we are able to continue to offer high quality legal services during this period.
Please everyone, remain safe, keep 1.5m from others, follow rules on social gatherings, wash hands & stay at home if you are sick.

Why Segelov Taylor?

Segelov Taylor Lawyers was established by Tanya Segelov and David Taylor in 2016.  They left a larger firm to set up their own firm focused on providing high quality legal services in specialist areas.

You Will Deal With A Principal Of The Firm

The owners of the firm, David and Tanya, will handle your matter. They are both very experienced lawyers, with 20 years experience in complex litigation.

Unlike larger firms, our matters are not handled by call centres, paralegals and junior lawyers.

Your matter will be dealt with by them from start to finish meaning you can be assured that every stage of the process will be handled with care and expertise.

We Are Specialist

We are not generalist lawyers. We specialise in a small number of areas of work and are expert in those areas.

We provide very high quality legal services in the areas we work in.

We Don't Take On All Matters

We only accept instruction in matters in the right matters. As a specialist firm, saying no to matters where we do not believe we are the right lawyers for the client (and have the capacity to do the work) is as important as the matters we select to take on. We focus on the work in which we specialise.

David and Tanya have the ability to decide what cases to take and when so that your matter remains a priority.

No Win, No Fee Policy

We act on a no win, no fee basis in the following matters:

  • all mesothelioma, asbestos, silica and dust disease claims;
  • all personal injury claims;
  • when we act for a person challenging a will;
  • in institutional and sexual abuse matters.

If we act for you on a ‘No win, no fee’ basis we will only recover our costs in the event of a successful claim. Unlike most firms we will pay all disbursements incurred in the preparation and litigation of your matter.

In other types of matters we act on a variety of basis, including payment at the conclusion of the claim, or on a partial no win, no fee basis. Information about out fee policies for different types of work is set out below. For more information about our fees, see our Fee Policy Page

Our Fees Are Lower

Because we don’t have large overheads, big offices or expensive marketing campaigns we are able to provide high quality legal services are a more reasonable price than other firms.

FREE Case Assessment

We offer a free initial case assessment.

We will obtain preliminary instructions from you and advise you whether we believe we are able to assist you in your matter.  If we believe me may be able to assist you we will discuss with you the the process, the terms of which we can act (including the likely costs) and the value of the claim.  The case assessment may be by phone, or in person. There is no cost associated with this case assessment, nor any obligation to instruct is in your matter.

You can contact Tanya Segelov, or David Taylor directly, or  contact our office by phone, email or the web-chat to arrange your free case assessment.
