Fletchers Solicitors

Clinical negligence: claimant Tier 3

Fletchers Solicitors' large team which serves a national client base from its north west heartlands, is divided into two parts. Mark Tempest, whose specialisms include acquired brain injury, spinal injury, complex birth injuries and Erb's Palsy, leads the firm's medical negligence serious injuries team, while Georgia Briscoe is in charge of the clinical negligence department. Associate Kate Lozynska is 'thorough' and 'leaves no stone unturned.'


A well run firm with a coordinated approach.

‘Cases are investigated head to toe to ensure no stone is left unturned.

Ian Clifton is an up-and-coming talent with an eye for detail and great client care.’

This is a knowledgeable team, which is driven to deliver the best service possible.’

Iain Dodd is a solid, safe pair of hands with a down-to-earth manner. He is capable of handling truly high value litigation.

Fletchers have built a very strong clinical negligence practice relatively quickly. They have recruited good people and have good internal systems for managing complex and high value work. They deal with cases efficiently and sensibly – focusing on the key strengths of a claim and dealing head on with weaknesses.

Michael Gray is an excellent litigator. He has a keen understanding of what is required to lay the foundation for a successful claim and wastes no time in pulling those threads together. He is also very popular with lay clients.

Iain Dodd is also well received by clients. He is compassionate and kind whilst maintaining the utmost professionalism and dealing with very sensitive issues. He is pragmatic and knowledgeable. He is a strong negotiator and always prepared to fight for a good result for his lay clients.

Personal injury: claimant Tier 3

Fletchers Solicitors is recognised for its expertise in serious injury cases, particularly involving motorbike accidents. Chief legal officer Adrian Denson has considerable experience conducting maximum severity cases including brain and spinal cord injuries. Head of the catastrophic personal injury team and 'stand-out practitioner' Julia Eyton's areas of expertise include brain, spinal, orthopaedic injuries, amputation, brachial plexus and fatal accidents. Working closely with the firm's Court of Protection team, chartered legal executive Caroline Morris routinely represents clients who lack capacity and is adept at handling high value, complex matters for both adults and children.


‘Fletchers have developed real expertise in the liability, medical causation and quantum issues involved. They adopt a team approach to cases and keep the clients updated and involved. They are a stand-out practice. The hallmarks of Fletchers’ excellent approach are their depth of expertise, team approach and balance of technical legal knowledge with commercial insight.’

‘Julia Eyton is a standout practitioner, as are various other fee earners including Ashley Nolan – a real specialist in serious brain and brachial plexus injury claims.’

‘The team are simply fantastic. Professional, kind, very patient and understanding of the difficulties claimants have in adjusting to the injuries incurred and changes they bring. The team respond to emails and calls promptly and will explain details as often as required to ensure the claimant is as clear as possible about how the claim is progressing.’

‘The team are so much more than just professionals working a case. Over the last couple of years they have been there in the background fighting my corner and deserve a medal for all the work they have done and continue to do for my case. I have been so impressed with the continuous dedication to their roles and overall professionalism. They are a great team and I honestly do not now how I would have coped without them. I am where I am now with my recovery because of the efforts put in by Ashley Nolan to ensure I have been put in contact with appropriate specialists to support not only my physical needs, but also my emotional needs.’
