Litigation Team

Who We Are

The general litigation team consists of a dedicated team of experienced solicitors and administrative support staff who provide advice, assistance and representation to HSC bodies in relation to personal injury litigation matters.

What We Do

Examples of the type of work carried out include:

  • Providing advice and assistance in relation to relevant legislation and case law including risk assessments, internal investigations, records management and statutory obligations of HSC bodies.
  • Providing advice and assistance in relation to legal liability, valuation and assessment of costs and damages in Employer’s Liability and Occupier’s Liability claims and, where appropriate, negotiating settlement of such claims.
  • Defending Employer’s Liability and Occupier’s Liability cases and providing representation at both County Court and High Court level. 

The team is able to use its experience and knowledge of both the HSC needs and the law to work closely with clients to ensure that all advice and representation at court is conducted in a fair, pragmatic, relevant and consistent manner while safeguarding public money.


The litigation team provides advice and training in relation to all litigation matters including lessons learned from claims to ensure a safe working environment for both HSC staff and visitors.
