I am a claimant clinical negligence lawyer in the Manchester medical negligence team, practising across a broad spectrum of claims, focusing on birth injury, brain injury, surgical negligence, delay in diagnosis, sepsis, and limb loss.
I am recognised in Legal 500 as 'business-like and a strong negotiator' with 'great strategic insight'. Chambers describes me as 'excellent, very empathetic but a tough negotiator'.
I am known for my client care and my determination to achieve the best outcome for my clients. Most of their cases concern treatment during pregnancy and delivery leading to birth injury to mother and child, failure to diagnose infection, spinal cord injury, brain injury and negligence following complex surgery. A number of my clients have received a late diagnosis of cancer, with devastating consequences.
I have a strong track record of securing substantial awards for my clients. I work with experts, case managers and therapists to recover funding for specialist care, accommodation and treatment for those injured, improving their quality of life and providing the comfort of long-term financial security.
I have practised as a solicitor, specialising in medical negligence for over 25 years and have been a Member of the Law Society's Clinical Negligence Accreditation Panel since 2005. I am a Member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and Associate Member of the Royal Society of Medicine.

Lindsay Holt 's experience includes surgical errors resulting in brain damage, as well as wrongful birth and birth injury claims. Clients consider her to be "very easy to work with, thorough and organised."
Lindsay was always helpful, courteous, and very respectful. Her tone, kindness and reassurance helped us through the case. Her approach was perfect for our family and made us feel at ease as she lead us through the process. This took the burden of us, allowing us to feel comfortable that things were being taken care of. Lindsay's compassion, empathy and approach in finding the best outcome for her client was invaluable.
Lindsay Holt must equal the best in the business. She saw me through a long and cynically vexatious case from which I would not have emerged and certainly would not have won so convincingly without her. Very highly recommended.
Lindsay Holt was brilliant: she kept us updated via emails, letters, texts, phone calls, through to home visits, you name it; whatever was required. I trusted Lindsay, I felt she worked on our behalf and represented our interest rather than just about winning at any cost.
Lindsay Holt is simply brilliant at her job and a wonderful person too. She was unbelievably compassionate, understanding and sympathetic to me right from the start and never made me feel rushed or pressured. She attentively listened to my difficult story and was very patient, providing me with the time and space to express my emotions. She made sure that I was clear about the process I would be taking if I chose to go ahead. I'm thankful that Lindsay was with me throughout this experience.
