Areas of internationally recognized expertise are ear deformity, piercing problems, cable strike injuries, laser surgery, correction of failed aesthetic surgery and extravasation injury.

"May I take this opportunity to thank you for your enormous assistance in this case and without your help, the case could not have been won."   
-    McMillan Willliams Solicitors, 2014

The most frequent type of negligence instruction related to alleged negligence in laser treatment (particularly in the use of IPL and multipurpose devices), extravasation injury and ear surgery. The most frequent personal injury instruction was for scarring after both minor and major trauma, particularly if an opinion on both surgical and laser solutions is required.

Frequent instructors included TJL Solicitors, Slater and Gordon, Irwin Mitchell, JCP Solicitors & McMillan Williams Solicitors:
