“I have instructed Clive for a number years now, in relation to a some very difficult clinical negligence claims. Clive has the ability to identify and analyse key case issues quickly and succinctly; and he always provides pragmatic, clear and client centric advice. In addition, to his obvious technical skills, Clive develops a good rapport with both clients and experts in conference very quickly; and he always deals with any sensitive issues, as can often arise in clinical negligence cases, in both a caring and compassionate manner. Based on my experience, I would not hesitate to recommend Clive as clinical negligence Counsel.”
James Wright, Shoosmiths
