Clare Humphrys-Smith qualified in 1998 and worked initially in clinical negligence and health advice. Since becoming an associate, Clare has specialised in defending clinical negligence claims for the NHS and also for individual clinicians.
She handles a wide variety of clinical claims, and has developed a particular knowledge of birth-injury and brain damage claims through her work advising NHS Trusts.
In addition, Clare has experience of multi-party litigation and in recent years has led a team of solicitors in defending a large group of clinical negligence claims for the NHS. As a result Clare has experience of advising on litigation strategy within a high profile, complex group action and the novel legal arguments that accompany this.
