Health Advisory and Litigation


Gemma is an impressive senior Manchester Associate who works with Amanda Callaghan. She specialises in defending high value clinical negligence claims for NHS Resolution and healthcare Trusts and has a real talent for client relationship building. Gemma has a long history in the health sector and a wealth of experience of acting in claims from the patient, NHS and private clinicians’ perspectives, and it shows.

Our largest client has made a point of singling her out for praise for her grip of exactly what they want. Despite a stretching caseload with an average damages reserve of £10-15million per case and her supervision of others, Gemma also recognises the need to play her part in the legal fabric in Manchester and also finds time to support the Manchester office profile. She led the recent, incredibly successful, ‘12 days of Christmas’ initiative, planning joint events and donations to 12 different charities and arranging the media coverage.

During her four years at Pannone, she was elected Chair of the Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group and was awarded ‘Trainee Solicitor of the Year’ at the Manchester Legal Awards in 2011. Upon qualification in 2011, Gemma joined DWF to specialise in defendant serious injury litigation and undertook the role of Chair of the Manchester Young Solicitors Group. She understands her role as a promoter of our business to clients and other lawyers, which is really valued.
