Paul BalenFreeths LLP

Freeths LLP is recognised for its deep bench strength in catastrophic injury claims, delay in diagnosis and misdiagnosis of cancer and other conditions, surgical errors, incorrect treatment and inquests. ‘Exceptional‘ department head Jane Williams is a renowned figure and is an expert in complex surgical, oncology and brain injury cases. Owing to its medical negligence pedigree, the firm acts for an increasing number of clients as a result of the Maternity Services scandal at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, with claims ranging from maternal injuries, stillbirths, birth injury claims and neonatal deaths. Consultants Paul Balen and Jane Goulding are equally lauded for inquest work and cases with brain and spinal injuries; senior associates Adrian Denton  and Gemma Bedford are also integral figures in the practice.
