Nelsons Solicitors Limited's ‘excellent’ team provides ‘a first-class service for claimants’. The ‘highly specialised and dedicated’ group is noted for its particular expertise in the more serious cases, such as birth, brain and spinal injuries. Multi-party actions are an area of particular strength, as is inquest-related litigation. Lisa Preece  (‘shrewd tactician’) leads the team, which includes the ‘vastly experienced and unflappableBruce Williams, who has a sizeable personal injury caseload and is ‘a top performer in the field of clinical negligence’. Chris Stansfield and the ‘knowledgeable and efficientJulie Walker are other key personal injury practitioners. On the clinical negligence side, Matthew Olner ‘is highly experienced and a safe pair of hands in more complex cases’, with ‘a good knack for settlement and strategy’. Associate Baishali Clayton ‘is a real fighter’ and recently represented a client in a clinical negligence case concerning the death of the client’s baby after doctors made a two-inch deep cut into the baby’s skull during a caesarean section, causing the baby to haemorrhage.
