About Robyn

  • Biography

    Robyn specialises in Healthcare Regulatory and Health and Safety law.

    He has over 11 years’ experience advising clients across a range of sectors including health and social care, criminal/regulatory law and commercial litigation. His key clients include a number of large NHS Foundation Trusts, as well as national independent health and social care providers.

    Robyn has built up a wide range of experience from running his own criminal law solicitors practice for a number of years. His practice encompassed serious crime such as homicide and fraud, as well as general crime and regulatory matters.

    Robyn provides advice to clients (both organisations and individuals), who are subject to investigation by the Police for corporate manslaughter/gross negligence manslaughter, and by the Care Quality Commission for breaches of Health & Social Care Act legislation.

    Robyn has extensive experience of representing healthcare professionals and organisations at inquests, including complex Article 2 jury cases, and has provided advice and support to healthcare professionals appearing as witnesses at court.

    Some of Robyn’s relevant experience includes:

    • Representing a large mental health NHS Trust in a complex week long Article 2 inquest, involving a homicide.
    • Representing a large acute NHS Trust in an inquest involving issues with use of equipment/staff training. Local learning fed into part of a Health Safety Investigation Branch independent investigation looking at wider learning across the health community.

    In addition, Robyn is a member of the Law Society's Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme. As a criminal solicitor, he has extensive advocacy experience from appearing in the Magistrates Court, and with clients subject to PACE interviews under caution.
