Career

I am a medical negligence lawyer with 30 years' experience of successfully concluding the cases of my clients, who are often catastrophically injured.

I have settled numerous significant cases, achieving substantial compensation in complex cases, including in particular many relating to birth injury. This has often required the application of unique solutions to ensure that the lifelong needs of my clients can be fully met.

I have achieved excellent and hard fought successes in many highly complex and ‘difficult to win’ cases. I work with many clients who are unable to manage their affairs and am skilled at working with teams of experts, case managers, treating therapists and Court of Protection Deputies to achieve the best results for my clients.

I have recently secured several final settlements of between £15 million and £30 million (lifelong capitalised equivalent) ensuring that the accommodation, therapy and care needs of the respective clients will always be met.

Professional Memberships

I am a member of the specialist clinical negligence panels of Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) and the Law Society. I am designated as a Senior Litigator in the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
