We act for claimants and defendants and work on behalf of a very wide range of clients including private individuals, NHS Trusts, medical defence organisations and private medical and related institutions.

Members also provide representation at coroners’ inquests in which death has followed medical treatment.

Members are prepared to consider cases on a conditional fee basis.

Our team regularly delivers lectures to solicitors and other professionals on recent developments in the law and practice. If you are interested in arranging a lecture then please contact our clerks.
