Headed by David Mortimer, Blake Morgan LLP receives a significant flow of work on behalf of the Medical Protection Society (MPS) where it represents its members in defending claims brought against them. The team also has a particular niche acting for doctors sued in their role as experts in personal injury claims, and defends claims brought against health boards in Wales when the in-house NHS team is conflicted out. At an associate level, Alison Huckle and Tina Whitman are also recommended.

Headed by the 'experienced' Jane Lang as part of the broader healthcare advice and inquest practice group, BLM has 'significant experience in defending healthcare trusts' against clinical negligence claims, as well as in medical inquest work. Although she is better known for her work advising healthcare practitioners in disciplinary and regulatory matters, solicitor Sarah Price  also has experience of dealing with clinical negligence claims which follow on from inquests and regulatory matters. Clients include Medical Protection, Dental Protection and National Pharmacy Association.

Benefiting from 'strong specialist knowledge of the medical profession', the two-partner team at RadcliffesLeBrasseur provides a 'first-rate service' to doctors, dentists and allied healthcare professionals, and has an 'unrivalled depth of knowledge and experience in work straddling regulatory, inquest, clinical negligence and employment cases across the medical spheres'. Praised for his 'top-notch client handling skills', Huw Llewellyn-Morgan has 'an inordinate amount of experience in medical law - particularly regulatory cases before the General Medical Council and medical inquests, where there may also be a clinical negligence claim'. Morgan recently represented a medical practice in a claim by a patient alleging misprescription of an addictive drug which they since became dependent on. The 'down-to-earth and approachable' Mike Scherp is a 'fantastic litigation tactician' who is 'tactful in dealing with clients facing challenging cases' and also 'knows how to speak to and deal with doctors and get the best results from experts'. Scherp is representing a General Practitioner (GP) in a claim where allegations have been made against two other GPs and a hospital consultant in relation to life changing injuries sustained by the claimant.
