Clinical negligence solicitor awarded accredited status

Congratulations to Clare Middleton, one of our associate solicitors, who has gained recognition and accredited status as a senior litigator by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

Clare has worked at Atherton Godfrey LLP in our clinical negligence department for over 10 years and in that time has gained experience of a wide range of clinical negligence cases, helping many claimants gain the compensation they deserve after suffering negligent medical treatment.

Clare commented: ‘I am really pleased to receive accreditation from APIL as a senior litigator.

“It’s satisfying to be able to help people who so often have felt let down and are just looking to put their lives back together.”

The accreditation is awarded to lawyers who have been able to demonstrate that they have met a range of standards of competence in conducting personal injury litigation for claimants, throughout the whole process of a claim.

We’re proud to say that our team also benefits from an APIL accredited senior fellow (one of only 9 in the UK), an accredited fellow, 6 further accredited senior litigators and 5 accredited litigators.
