By their very nature, clinical trials involve an element of risk that needs to be managed. Through Lloyd’s underwriters we act for a number of the top UK universities and pharmaceutical companies. We’re regularly asked to consider no fault compensation schemes as well as handling cases brought as negligence claims. We understand the need to protect the position and reputation of the organisation while at the same time dealing with any claim in a cost effective and diligent manner.

Our track record in healthcare ensures we are uniquely placed to deal with medical device claims and our product liability work is closely linked to that of our clinical trials. We act in all manner of work including product recalls, defective products and group litigation proceedings, with particular proficiency in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • No fault compensation schemes associated with clinical trials.
  • Group litigation associated with products liability.
  • Indemnity issues as between Defendants.
