Stephen Maratos

Stephen leads the litigation team in the Newcastle office and specialises in clinical negligence claims for NHS Resolution as well as private individuals and their defence organisations. Stephen has worked in defendant clinical negligence since qualifying as a solicitor in 2005, he joined Hempsons in 2014.

He has been working in the field since 2005 and has handled high and low value claims over the years, and many complex cases. The cases have ranged from complex brain/spinal injury to orthopaedics and general surgery.

He adopts a robust approach on cases and achieving discontinuances and rebutting potential contribution claims on many matters. Aligned with that approach is a pragmatic way of working, meaning that he regularly utilises forms of ADR where there are litigation risks on cases, meaning that costs are saved and settlements negotiated promptly where necessary.

I’m a Dad to three kids and when not taking them to and from taekwondo or art classes I tend to go running or cycling. I’ve done a couple of marathons but now realise that half marathons are a lot more achievable so try to enter plenty of those to keep me busy.
