Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury Team

Doughty Street Chambers’ Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury Team is a niche team of driven and innovative counsel undertaking complex and cutting-edge claims work acting principally for individuals (including in group actions). 

Members of the team have huge experience across the board in clinical negligence, personal injury and product liability work, at home and internationally. We specialise in complex, interesting claims and appeals, working with high quality solicitors equally committed to our work, and we seek to provide a comprehensive service in a wide spectrum of cases ranging from neonatal, spinal, brain injury and other catastrophic injuries and fatal accidents, to abuse work, to employment related personal injury, including industrial disease and workplace injuries and fatalities. We regularly represent families at inquests, and different members of the team have acted for the claimants in many of the highest profile individual and group actions in recent years.  

We have a vacancy for an experienced junior Personal Injury practitioner who is committed to core Doughty Street values. An expertise in Clinical Negligence is desirable but not essential. The team has a strong national presence and is particularly interested in developing its existing regional practice in the North, South West and Wales. We have offices in London, Bristol and Manchester.

Please direct expressions of interest to Mark Dembovsky, Chief Executive, Doughty Street Chambers (m.dembovsky@doughtystreet.co.uk).
