Our Services

As a leader in defending medical malpractice claims, we have experience in handling the most complex, sensitive matters, group actions, through to the smallest claims adopting appropriate strategies for each.

As we are a market leading presence in the insurance sector, we are also able to provide specialist advice in the healthcare sector. The combination of a depth of expertise in both the healthcare and litigation sector, as well as an international presence, is what sets us apart.

Particular types of work undertaken by our team include:

  • Cosmetic surgery – acting for leading cosmetic and plastic surgeons in defending and managing claims brought by former patients dissatisfied with the outcome achieved from a variety of procedures.
  • Primary care we frequently act for GPs, out-of-hours and walkin centers in a wide range of compensation claims.
  • Sports medicine – we act as leading specialists in sports medicine in connection with claims brought by professional sportsmen and athletes. Often it is alleged that a doctor's involvement has curtailed a playing career, resulting in substantial losses.
  • Alternative therapies – we act for a range of defendants undertaking minimally invasive treatment, such as laser tattoo removal leading to scarring, acupuncture causing punctured lungs, and numerous chiropractors, where it is alleged that manipulations have caused fractures and even strokes.
  • Care homes – we act for private care homes in connection with claims arising out of alleged lack of care, often leading to a rapid decline in health and death. This is a sensitive area of our work and can often generate press interest and regulatory oversight.
  •  Group actions and major incidents – we have considerable experience of managing all aspects of serious incidents and claims. These include multi-party actions, and incidents arising from criminal conduct from healthcare staff.
  • Dentistry – we act for a number of dentists undertaking general and cosmetic or restorative dentistry.
