Medical Solicitors was named Medical Negligence Team of the Year at the 2023 Sheffield & District Law Society Awards on Friday 17 February.
Launched in Sheffield in 2008 by Managing Partner, Caroline Moore, Medical Solicitors has established itself as one of the north’s leading lights in the field of clinical negligence law. The firm has expanded to now have a specialist team of 28, and with branch offices in Sheffield, York and Hull.
The Sheffield and District Law Society judging panel commended the highly reputable niche clinical negligence law firm for its strong business performance, ethos and dedication to clients. The firm has seen year-on-year growth since its launch and now has a client-base that spreads the breadth of the UK. In the last 12 months, Medical Solicitors has received a record number of new instructions, reflected in a 35 percent increase in gross turnover.
Medical Solicitors is proud of its commitment to their routine pro-bono work. Often clients simply want to understand what happened to them or highlight issues with a care provider. The firm supports clients in drafting appropriate letters or helping them manage the complaint process. Invariably this results in people getting the answers they need and prevents spurious claims and complaints
Caroline Moore, Managing Partner says: “The core values of Medical Solicitors include access to justice when medical interventions go wrong, and operating impeccable service standards. Our caseloads are kept deliberately low to help our lawyers properly ‘build’ cases and to facilitate exceptional client care. We’re very proud that our work has been recognised by our peers in the regions.”
The team’s award is yet another accolade, following on from Caroline winning Partner of the Year at last year’s awards.
