I have been a partner in Bevan Brittan since May 2007 and lead a team of 15 solicitors working across three offices.
As a Nominated Partner for NHS Resolution work in the firm's Clinical Risk department, I have been acting on behalf of NHS Resolution and NHS Trusts and in the defence of clinical negligence cases since 2001. I am recognised as a leading clinical negligence and medical malpractice solicitor by both Chambers and the Legal 500.
I act for a leading medical insurer, advising on medical malpractice issues. This work involves dealing with all the client’s claims and inquests from various sectors including; prison healthcare, out of hours GP services, cosmetic surgery treatments and NHS 111 services.
I deal with a broad spectrum of cases and have experience in most clinical disciplines. Typically, my cases are high value and complex claims often involving brain or other neurological injury. I have successfully defended many claims at trial and have fought cases to the Court of Appeal.
I also manage the firm’s relationships with a number of our insurance and health clients in both primary care and acute settings.
I provide training on the medico-legal process to doctors and nurses and have developed specific training packages for Obstetric and Neurosurgical practice.
Recently, I spoke at a primary care setting conference run by an insurer for their clients and insurance brokers on claims arising out of an inquest.
I have published articles and case reports in Clinical Risk and Healthcare Risk Report.
