At 2TG, we have an excellent reputation for dealing with matters in the Healthcare and Injury field and are home to many of the leading Silks and Junior barristers in this area.
In addition to dealing with the full range of clinical negligence and personal injury work, we also provide advice to individual medical practitioners and healthcare organisations on other issues that frequently impact their work and operations. This can be in respect of disciplinary and regulatory affairs, inquiries and investigations, inquests, product liability, insurance coverage, life and health/PHI insurance, cyber liability and data breaches as well as employment and workplace disputes. We are able to offer equal strength in depth in all areas, which is something that sets us apart from most of our competitors.
We routinely act for both claimants and defendants on precedent-setting liability and quantum cases of maximum complexity and value. We represent insurers, NHS trusts, private hospitals, MDU, MPS and private individuals. In respect of personal injury, we are instructed on the full range of matters from the most severe psychiatric and catastrophic injury to those claims which proceed on the small claims and fast track.
We are held in highest regard for cases with an international dimension including cross border litigation involving matters of jurisdiction and applicable law. We are routinely instructed in large, group litigation concerning multi-claims of abuse and injury, frequently appearing in the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court in cases of this nature. Recent relevant examples include Roberts v (1) SSAFA (2) MOD (3) Viersen and Brownlie v FS Cairo.
Our barristers are able to combine their healthcare and injury expertise with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of other industries, their regulations and particular demands. For example, we enjoy an excellent reputation in both Sport and Travel, where injuries are a frequent and inevitable cause of dispute.
We offer specialist knowledge in other complementary and interlinked areas such as product liability, where claims arise out of faulty equipment, defective medical devices and drugs; insurance, in relation to coverage matters including life and health insurance disputes; and employment where the set is well known for its employment liability practice, which includes stress at work, harassment and other HSE related claims.
