Charlotte has over 20 years’ experience in clinical negligence claims, particularly high value and complex cases including birth injury and acquired brain injury claims.
Meanwhile, Sarah Huntbach was appointed as a Legal Director in January. Sarah also sits as an Assistant Coroner for the Derby & Derbyshire area.
She is leading the team appointed by HM Coroner Birmingham & Solihull to investigate deaths of former patients of Mr Ian Paterson, a former practicing Consultant Breast and Vascular Surgeon.
Natasha Alton joined the team as an Associate in March. Natasha has experience in dealing with a variety of clinical negligence cases including those arising from catastrophic injuries, orthopaedic injury and claims arising from a delay in medical diagnosis.
Finally, Sarina Nar has joined as Paralegal having held a similar role at a national firm and will assist the team with a variety of legal tasks.
