Tanzeela is a qualified solicitor and barrister based in Thompsons’ Manchester office as part of the national clinical negligence team advising clients who have been injured or the families of those who have died in a healthcare setting through negligent care.

She has experience dealing with and settling high-value claims, including brain and spinal cord injuries, failures to diagnose; failure to treat; lack of consent and birth injuries.

Tanzeela is a deeply empathetic advocate for individuals who have sustained injuries or lost a loved one. As part of the Thompsons team, her commitment lies in securing the highest quality care for the injured through timely interim payments, as well as seeking answers to the multitude of questions families often face, questions that frequently remain unaddressed by authorities in both the NHS and private health sectors following serious injury or death.

She is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and an accredited senior litigator. She also holds a Law Society accreditation as a clinical negligence specialist.
