Area of Expertise

  • Clinical negligence
  • Major trauma
  • Personal injury

Since qualifying as a solicitor in 1993 I have specialised in personal injury and clinical negligence litigation. I started off as a claimant lawyer and during my training worked on union funded employers’ liability cases including industrial disease claims.

When I qualified I gained valuable experience handling high volume RTA litigation cases before moving to leading Health Service firm Capsticks 1995 and specialising in defendant clinical negligence and personal injury. I became a Partner there in 2000 by which time I was solely specialising in catastrophic clinical negligence cases.

In 2005 I joined Moore Blatch to join my former Capsticks colleagues Tim Spring and Anne Cassidy in setting up the Richmond office. This has now expanded to more than 40 staff and I am responsible for the day to day smooth running of it.

My focus is now primarily on clinical  negligence work with a particular interest in meningitis cases and those involving complex future loss claims. I also have an interest  in how reform in the healthcare sector may impact on patient safety and I've recently presented to a major NHS Trust on the issue of Duty of Candour.

In 2014 I successfully represented the claimant in the highly publicised case of Coakley v Rosie (2014) EWHC 1790. This case arose from the Defendant GP failing to suspect that the claimant was suffering from Meningococcal Meningitis, resulting in a substantial award of damages.

Other recent settlements include:

  • £800,000 for a taxi driver when the Defendant hospital failed to appropriately treat his badly injured leg following a road traffic accident. As a result it was amputated below the knee.

  • £1.3 million for a manual worker who fell down a lift shaft suffering severe spinal injuries for the contractors for whom he was working.

  • £5.2 million for a child left with severe brain damage following a failure by a GP to admit him to hospital

  • £800,000 for a man who was left permanently disabled following a perforated common iliac artery

I am a past editor of the firm’s personal injury newsletter and a past Trustee of Headway North West London.
