As a specialist within the clinical negligence market, I am surprised at the resilience of clinical negligence lawyers, who seem to be able to weather everything put in their way.

Over the years, the changes in the law and the various funding issues have sent personal injury specialists into a relative spin, but clinical negligence lawyers have always appeared to be determined to find ways to continue to practise successfully. One wonders what they have for breakfast that the rest of us don’t.
