Praise from the Legal 500

Thompsons Solicitors LLP's group, which has a strong track record in high-profile cases, is well-regarded for its experience of TVT/vaginal mesh litigation. It handles various other matters, such as high-value cerebral palsy cases, wrongful birth claims, catastrophic injury cases and fatalities that arise from clinical negligence. It demonstrates strong credentials in group actions, and has brought various claims against a number of negligent surgeons in the Midlands. Linda Millband is a key member of the department.

"Its strength is its depth and a wealth of experience. Supervision is excellent. The quality of the partners is extremely high and they are ably assisted by very good junior solicitors and legal executives."

Praise from Chambers and Partners 2019

"Excellent, hardworking and dedicated." 

Praise from Queen's Counsel

"The Midlands team has secured a number of notable successes. David Gauler recently secured a major triumph when the Supreme Court refused the MIB permission to appeal a decision holding them liable for catastrophic spinal cord injuries to a client run down by an uninsured vehicle on private land.  Laura Harper’s attention to detail enabled her to secure a settlement of £1.7m for a seriously-injured car passenger, despite his failure to wear a seatbelt. In the clinical negligence field, Linda Millband’s impressive leadership and unrivalled successes continue to grab headlines."
