Medical malpractice claims impact heavily on reputations, families and organisations. So it’s vital claims are dealt with efficiently and cost effectively by specialists in the field.

With 40 years’ work in healthcare, there isn’t much in the way of medical malpractice we haven’t seen. Our team has the breadth and experience to manage a wide variety of matters, including complex investigations and low value claims. Our lawyers are well-versed in handling inquests, regulatory matters, criminal investigations and civil claims including group litigation.

Our experts advise on claims against organisations and individuals in all areas of healthcare, acting on behalf of healthcare organisations, and individuals through their insurers to defend claims made against them and/ or their practices.

Capsticks' record of defending clinical negligence and catastrophic injury cases for the NHS is outstanding. Not only does our team of experienced lawyers assist our clients with litigation but we also advise on a variety of legal matters before and after litigation such as instigation and handling of complaints, serious incident reports, risk management and reputation management following adverse incidents.

Our specialist healthcare inquest team is one of the largest in the country, providing both an advisory and advocacy service. Our guidance and advice supports you through the entire inquest and regulatory processes. We work with you to minimise risk and ensure you’re properly prepared.
