I am a partner with the firm’s clinical negligence team, specialising in complex, high value cases in all fields of medicine and surgery. I am also a qualified doctor.
My clients want to know how we can help them get a fair level of compensation that will ensure their future medical and care needs are adequately covered. They also want to know that lessons will be learned from what has happened, and steps taken to avoid it in future.
My previous training as a doctor enables me to engage with my clients on a broader base than the law alone, which they find reassuring and informative.
