Congratulations to the clinical negligence team at Your Legal Friend on being recommended once again by Chambers and Partners. This year we are delighted to have been recommended as a Band 1 law firm – up from our previous Band 2 ranking.
Chambers and Partners researched descriptions of our lawyers and the types of clinical negligence cases we have been working on over the last 12 months. They also interviewed some of our clients, counsel contacts, and experts to find out how we perform as a law firm. The results show that we are now recognized as a top law firm which is a great achievement for our team.
Individual recognition from Chambers and Partners has been given to two of our lawyers:
Laura Morgan our Lawyer and Director of Medical Negligence has been individually ranked by Chambers and Partners as a Band 1 leading lawyer.
Sara Stanger our Principal Lawyer and Department Manager has been individually ranked by Chambers and Partners as a Band 2 leading lawyer.
Here’s how Chambers and Partners described Your Legal Friend:
Notable team with a growing presence in the Merseyside area. Represents clients in a wide range of cases, including surgical negligence, failure to diagnose and amputation claims. Also assists clients with wrongful birth cases and informed consent issues.
Interviewees praise the team for having "an impressive strength in depth, a forensic attention to detail and uncompromising standards of service," adding: "The lawyers always go the extra mile for their clients."
Further sources describe the lawyers as "a pleasure to work with. The team is very skilled and very well managed."
Advised on a claim in which the failure to diagnose lung cancer led to a fatality.
Sources highlight Laura Morgan as being "technically very competent, sympathetic with clients and showing a great deal of understanding of clinical negligence claims," further stating that she handles matters in an "assured, confident and sensitive manner." She is experienced across a variety of cases, demonstrating recent activity in surgical negligence claims. Interviewees say: "She is tactically excellent and a great strategist. Her ability to forensically analyse complicated issues is second to none."
"A pleasure to work with," Sara Stanger is "incisive, to the point, very experienced and works with great common sense," according to one source, who adds: "She does not get bogged down with minute detail but gets straight to the point." She acts on delayed diagnosis of cancer, failure to obtain informed consent and wrongful birth claims.
Congratulations to the team on this great result.
