Shivi Nathan | Fieldfisher

I have specialised in claimant Medical Negligence for the past 20 years.

My experience includes representing children and adults in cases of the maximum severity. I focus on obstetric claims where children have sustained brain injuries during or just after birth.

I represent clients affected by maternal birth injuries and birth trauma – physical and psychological. I led the claimant team in the widely reported case of Davison v Leitch securing record breaking damages of £1.6m for my client.

I am regularly recommended to women affected by perineal tear injury directly from their clinicians and through word of mouth via a close knit and trusted community. I recently co-authored a chapter in the latest edition of the book Pelvic Floor, Perineal and Anal Sphincter Trauma during childbirth.

I work closely with training and medical leads for the acute care medical trainees at various London hospital trusts and run study days and medico-legal training for the staff on issues including inquests and note taking.

I am a regular guest speaker at medico-legal conferences and host specialist study days. 

I am an APIL accredited Senior Litigator and am on the panel as a clinical negligence specialist for AvMA (Action against Medical Accidents).

What others say…

Shivi Nathan really looked after me over the course of my case which ended up being several years due to the pandemic. I was kept informed throughout and felt that she was a real advocate for me. I am grateful for all of her efforts and expertise.


Following my life-changing irreversible Spinal Cord Injury, I approached Shivi Nathan… She kept me informed at every step of the process. She kept me at ease during those frustratingly long years. I always had a strong trust with my solicitor because of her utmost professionalism, dedication and passionate approach to me and my family.


I cannot begin to thank our wonderful solicitor Shivi Nathan enough for all her incredible support, hard work and utter commitment to our daughter's clinical negligence claim.
