Open quotation mark

"I am a partner in the medical negligence team, and have over 20 years’ experience in advising on medical negligence claims. I specialise in claims involving brain injury, and in particular cerebral palsy claims.”

I have extensive experience of representing seriously injured people and helping them to rebuild their lives through access to the best rehabilitation and obtaining substantial settlements to ensure financial security for life.

I am passionate about patients’ rights and ensuring lessons are learned from poor practise. I have seen the devastating impact that substandard care can have on patients and their loved ones and will fight tirelessly to obtain the best possible outcome for the family.

I am one of a limited number of solicitors on the specialist Law Society Clinical Negligence panel as an expert in medical negligence. I am listed in the Chambers Directory and Legal 500 as a recognised leading medical negligence lawyer.

It is important to me to develop a very close relationship with my clients and their family and my aim is relieve some of the burden and worry of dealing with life changing injuries. I work hard to provide clear advice and support throughout the litigation process.

  • Successfully concluded many cerebral palsy claims caused by hypoxic insult during pregnancy or labour resulting in settlements in excess of £20million on a capitalised basis.
  • Experience in dealing with delays in diagnosing meningitis in children and adults including a settlement of over £15million
  • Acted on a number of claims resulting in loss of vision caused by overmedicating and delayed diagnosis
  • Advised on a number of cauda equina claims involving a delay in recognising nerve injury causing permanent neurological damage
