We are the leading national defendant clinical negligence firm, with all three of our offices ranked as ‘top tier’ by the Legal 500 and many of our team attracting individual praise. Our 40+ strong team of lawyers advise the National Health Service Litigation Authority, NHS Trusts and medical defence organisations on wide ranging and important issues providing intelligent and novel solutions and are described as ‘second to none’ by Chambers and Partners. We have huge experience in dealing with the most complex birth injury and wrongful birth claims. The team is strengthened by a number of former doctors, nurses and other clinicians and is recognised for its knowledge of the healthcare field. We also have an in house costs team as we appreciate that the cost of litigation is one of our clients’ major concerns.
The team impresses its clients with its continuity of staff, its fantastic client care, and because it is ‘excellent at handling clinicians’.
