• I am an experienced healthcare litigator who advises clients at every stage of the litigation process from pre-action to first instance trial and appeal at all levels of the appellate courts. I specialise in defending complex, high value and novel and repercussive claims brought against healthcare providers.

    I acted in the ground-breaking case of XX v Whittington Hospital NHS Trust, concerning recoverability of damages for international commercial surrogacy arrangements, and am regularly instructed on multi-million pound negligence actions involving obstetric, neurosurgical, ICU and cardiac care.

    I am interested in all areas of healthcare law and ethics but have a particular focus on emerging clinical risk and patient safety issues arising in the fields of digital health, AI and med tech. I am Bevan Brittan’s Co-Lead for Digital Health and advise start-ups, SMEs and established corporate providers on liability exposure, indemnity arrangements and other dispute issues.  I am regularly asked to provide training to clinicians, healthcare management, insurers and in-house legal and clinical governance teams.

    • Symes v St George's Healthcare NHS Trust [2014] EWHC 2505 (QB)
