• Our national team are recognised experts in resolving disputes concerning the provision of medical care for private healthcare providers. We know that every adverse outcome involves an injured patient and their family and significant personal and financial cost for the insureds and insurers providing the care and cover for claims.

    Drawing on specialist teams of over 60 lawyers across the UK we provide advice on investigating and managing complaints and investigations and representing private health providers across the UK when medical malpractice claims are made.

    As a Band 1 team in Chambers we manage over 3000 cases at any one time with values from £50 to £50m. Experienced in Alternative Dispute Resolution and Mediation we also have a reputation for the robust defence of unmeritorious claims with a strong track record of cases won at trial in the county court, the high court and the appeal courts.
