Kennedys (Cambridge)

The specialist defendant clinical negligence practice at Kennedys is ‘exceptional and always impresses with the prompt and helpful advice it provides’. NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA) nominated partner and practice head Robert Tobin and partner Amanda Mead are ‘incredibly helpful and run the Cambridge office to a very high standard’. Senior associate Camilla Long and solicitors Ross Bell and Samantha Goward garner ‘particularly high praise for the peace of mind and the personal touch they give to their clients’. Clients also recommend solicitors Laura Ringrose and Debra Sexton (a former doctor), and senior associate Margaret Duncan. The firm is the dominant defence practice in East Anglia and is the region’s only NHSLA panel firm for clinical negligence. The firm’s extensive list of recent work includes acting on behalf of an NHS trust in a case involving more than 90 adverse outcomes following treatment by a specialist consultant; and acting for the NHSLA in the defence of high-profile case for a mental health trust. A recent success at trial for Mead, Ringrose and Tobin came in Hannah Pease v Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, which involved claims by a former patient diagnosed with conditions including social anxiety and autistic spectrum disorder alleging negligence in failing to diagnose Asperger’s Syndrome. The judge found no breach of duty.
