Medical malpractice claims impact heavily on reputations, families and organisations. So it is vital that claims are dealt with efficiently and cost effectively by specialists in the field. 
With over 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. This wide ranging experience enables us to look at all claims in a holistic manner thereby giving our clients the benefit of understanding all the potential issues that may arise from a claim.
Working with Lloyds Underwriters as well as a leading medical defence organisation and the NHS to defend claims, we know how important it is to deliver results promptly and keep our clients and their staff informed and satisfied.

  • Policy

    Our insurance and healthcare experience enables us to provide wide-ranging policy services as coverage counsel for underwriters on medical malpractice claims. We understand not only the importance of wordings being sufficiently clear but also the commercial relationships between insurers and their insureds and how they can be affected by policy decisions. We have worked with organisations as well as individuals on the instructions of underwriters to help them better understand reporting requirements and ensure compliance with policy conditions.
