My role

I am a partner and head of the clinical negligence and personal injury department. I handle a wide variety of clinical negligence and personal injury cases with a focus on maximum severity/catastrophic injury claims. I also handle professional negligence cases arising out of personal injury and clinical negligence. As a partner I also have wider strategic leadership responsibilities. I am accredited to the Law Society Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Panel as well as the AvMA Clinical Negligence Panel and am a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers highlighting my specialism in this area of work. I partner and support like minded organisations who share a common goal of supporting individuals who have suffered a life changing injury such as the Child Brain Injury Trust, Headway, The Sepsis Trust and The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust.

I qualified in 1995 having had a broad range of experience, in both civil and criminal litigation as well as non-contentious work. I moved to Anthony Collins Solicitors in September 2000 and was invited to partnership in 2009. I sit as a Deputy District Judge on the northwest circuit and have had articles and case reports published in a wide variety of medico-legal journals. 

My experience

I have extensive experience in all types of clinical negligence and personal injury cases but specialise in complex claims which usually have a catastrophic injury element.

I am recommended in the Leading Lawyers Guides to outstanding lawyers, the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners UK directories where I have been named as an “elite” lawyer.

I have been involved in extremely high value complex claims which have resulted in multi-million pound settlements or awards ranging from brain/spinal injury to orthopaedic injuries.  I have been involved in cases which have proceeded to the Court of Appeal and therefore tested legal principles and application in my area of work. 

I am on the Law Society Personal Injury Panel, the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel and the AvMA Clinical Negligence Panel.
