Anthea Lane's Expertise

 

Anthea Lane

Anthea specialises in defending clinical negligence claims on behalf of the NHS and private defence organisations.

She has over 16 years’ experience advising NHS Resolution, NHS Trusts, The Medical Defence Union and their specialist arm, The Dental Defence Union, on a variety of matters. She is currently involved with birth and spinal injury claims where complex liability and quantum issues arise. Anthea is currently dealing with cases involving cerebral palsy and neonatal meningitis and she also has experience in cases where there is a more unusual component; e.g. where the Claimant is a professional sportsman or a celebrity.

Anthea advises on complex issues in these cases and a significant majority are resolved on the basis of Periodical Payments Orders. Anthea is experienced in delivering training for her clients. She has led workshops for NHS Resolution on issues relating to patient consent as well as delivering training to Trusts and NHS Resolution on conducting effective mediations.

Relevant experience includes:

  • Advising NHS Resolution and their member Trusts in negotiating multi-million pound settlements where patients have sustained catastrophic brain and spinal injuries.
  • Undertaking direct advisory work for NHS Trusts on a range of matters from patient consent to issues with the provision of NHS equipment/services.
  • Leading on and advising The Dental Defence Union and their members on more specialist and high profile issues such as vicarious liability and non-delegable duty of care.

Anthea is recognised and listed by Legal 500 as a Next Generation Partner.

Clients have described Anthea as "very professional in her work with in-depth knowledge of the issues. She has empathy for clients' predicaments and tries to allay their fears."

In addition, they also commented that: "She is a very tough and robust negotiator, but firm and fair. She is reliable and responsible with strong attention to detail in any case she is instructed. Anthea will always be the first Solicitor I will instruct on any of my cases.".
