• I am a Partner in the Clinical Risk team based in the firm's London office. I am an experienced litigator and have defended a wide variety of claims from pre-action through to first instance trial and appeal, including complex surgical, neurosurgical, intensive care, obstetric and cardiology cases. I work closely with NHS Resolution and a number of acute NHS Trusts in London and the South East. My aim is to defend claims robustly where justified but to deal with cases fairly and cost-effectively where the treatment provided has been clearly sub-standard. I have a broad interest in all areas of healthcare law and ethics but I am particularly interested in emerging clinical risk issues arising in the areas of digital health and health tech. I regularly provide training to clinicians, NHS management, insurers and SMEs on a variety of topics within my fields of expertise.   

    Notable cases:

    • XX v Whittington NHS Foundation Trust [2017] EWHC 2318 (QB)
    • Symes v St George's Healthcare NHS Trust [2014] EWHC 2505 (QB)
    • Ecclestone v Medway NHS Foundation Trust [2013] EWHC 790 (QB)
