In the north west, the team has been further strengthened by the acquisition of big-hitter James Gratton in the role of supervisory lawyer. Working with senior solicitor Matthew Tollitt, their careful but pragmatic approach enabled a £1 million settlement for an inexperienced scaffolder who fell through a skylight, suffering multiple injuries. In the clinical negligence field, Rosalyn Steeple’s meticulous preparation has recently secured an admission of liability in a difficult cerebral palsy case.
