Since opening their Aberdeen branch in 2004, leading Scottish law firm balfour+manson has gone from strength to strength.
The West End office is headed up by litigation partner Julie Clark-Spence, who was promoted to Partner level last year. Julie and her team have an in-depth understanding of the industries local to Aberdeen, particularly oil and gas, aviation and agriculture, and considerable experience dealing with personal injury claims.
The Granite City office has developed unrivalled expertise in dealing with complex and high value claims from accidents in the UK and overseas, fatal claims and air disasters. The firm has been involved in some of the highest profile cases over the years including Piper Alpha, the Lockerbie Bombing, RAF accidents and offshore helicopter ditchings.
Together, the staff at balfour+manson have over 140 years of experience in advising clients on medical negligence – in particular injuries at birth, delayed diagnosis of cancer, misdiagnosis, cosmetic surgery and dentistry.
In a Supreme Court case decided in March, balfour+manson represented the mother of a child who had been asphyxiated during birth and now suffers cerebral palsy. As well as winning a considerable settlement to meet the family’s ongoing care needs, doctors will have to discuss with their patients the options that exist in their treatment and advise them about the alternatives and any associated risks.
balfour+manson is highly recognised in Chambers UK and Legal 500, as the UK No.1 for personal injury, medical negligence, civil liberties and human rights, as well as highly regarded in family law, professional negligence, charity, private client and employment law areas of legal expertise.
Julie commented, ‘We understand that no two cases are the same, and we pride ourselves in offering a personal service to clients during what are undoubtedly difficult and traumatic times in their lives’.
