Specialist Legal Services for Shrewsbury
Cases of medical negligence have dominated the legal service industry in and around Shrewsbury in recent times. There has been the tragic news about failures within the maternity department of Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, and also the national breast screening scandal, where more than 400,000 women have missed potentially life-saving mammograms due to an administrative error.
With direct experience of representing families in such difficult and often tragic circumstances, we pride ourselves on our sensitive and expert handling of such cases and are highly respected throughout the industry.
We organise industry events focusing on personal injury and medical negligence such as the Surviving Spinal Injury Conference, which brought together leading medical specialists and former patients who gave talks and provided information to fellow professionals, charities and individuals about the path from injury and diagnosis all the way through to rehabilitation.
Employment and housing are two further sectors regularly requiring legal advice in the area, in the current climate.
The ever-growing population of Shrewsbury - the result of the growing jobs market in the town and its commuting distance to major commercial locations across Shropshire and into The Midlands, plus the direct rail link to London, – is increasing demand for new homes and property developments are springing up across the area. Planning and its associated legal issues have become a high priority in the region and one our specialist property and planning lawyers are adept at dealing with.
As a key commercial centre for Shropshire and with more than 500 businesses with offices registered in Shrewsbury, legal services for businesses in the area are in high demand.
