Holmes work with indemnifiers, insurers, independent clinics, healthcare practitioners, care homes, alternative therapists, mental health professionals, pharmacists, and treatment and diagnostic centres.
Providing advice and support throughout the full dispute resolution process and beyond. We offer a broad range of services to our clients, including defending medical malpractice, professional negligence, and personal injury claims. Clinical errors may also be intertwined with a range of regulatory risks which demand expert knowledge to manage and prepare a comprehensive strategy in the approach to potential disciplinary procedures, coroner’s inquests, criminal prosecutions, and public inquiries. Our national team can help guide practitioners and the organisations they work for through all these processes. With every claim, we provide informed, straightforward, and pragmatic advice to help identify those claims which ought to be settled and those to contest, to reduce delays, stress, and costs. Wherever possible, our lawyers foster dialogue and co-operation with the claimant’s legal advisors throughout the claim’s duration and seek common ground early to remove conflict and minimise delay in the dispute resolution process. Our lawyers bring years of media management experience to the healthcare sector, proactively dealing with reputational issues and engaging with the media for our clients when necessary.
