AS THE SENIOR PARTNER IN THE BRISTOL TEAM I CONTINUE TO MANAGE A NUMBER OF LARGE VALUE CLAIMS FOR INDIVIDUALS AND HAVE CONSIDERABLE EXPERIENCE IN GROUP ACTIONS.
Having a focus on high valued birth injury claims has allowed me the privilege of working with many truly impressive families. I act as Professional Deputy or Trustee for many of my child claimants and for some this has been a relationship which has continued for a number of years after their settlement. Seeing the real difference this has made to their lives has been an inspiration for me in my ongoing litigation and reminded me of exactly what it is really all about.
I have settled many multi-million pound claims for brain damaged babies for many of whom I now act as Deputy or Trustee.
I have been the lead solicitor in the Cornwall partnership NHS Trust and Winterbourne View Group actions. A novel solution to resolving an accommodation claim for a claimant with a short life expectancy was one of my most satisfying moments.
I am an accredited mediator, an AvMA Clinical Negligence panel member, a law Society Specialist Clinical negligence panel member.
In Chambers UK, I am recognised as a ‘leading individual’ and in the Legal 500 as a star performer.
