Kate said she was delighted to be joining a premier medical negligence team and to continue the high-profile and specialist work for which Fieldfisher is well known.
"Fieldfisher has the deserved reputation as one of the best medical negligence teams in the country based on its impressive caseload of successes, achieving the very best for clients. Its ethos of working non-stop to find answers for people catastrophically affected by negligence is exactly what I believe in, not least so that lessons can be learned to improve patient safety."
Paul McNeil, head of Personal Injury and Medical Negligence at Fieldfisher, described Kate as 'a perfect fit', and that the quality of her work 'speaks for itself'.
"Kate will join our expert lawyers specialising in brain, birth and spinal injuries, and particularly cerebral palsy claims."
Fieldfisher recently maintained its Tier 1 spot in the Legal 500, with the team described as having 'unparalleled strength and depth acting in the highest value medical malpractice claims both in the UK and internationally'.
The team was described in Chambers 2020 as 'top notch' 'superb… highly organised and proactive' and as 'leaving no stone unturned'.
