Browne Jacobson in Manchester has further strengthened its health team with the arrival of partner Dr Andrew Peel from Sheffield-based Hill Dickinson.

Andrew, who headed up Hill Dickinson’s independent health team, is a dual-qualified medical practitioner and lawyer specialising in advising private sector health care providers and insurers on a wide range of clinical negligence, regulatory, criminal and inquest matters.

With nearly 20 years’ experience of the health sector advising clients such as The Medical Protection Society, BUPA, Health Corp America and Travelers, Andrew is widely regarded as a leading individual in his field by Legal 500.

Andrew is joining an expanding office which opened back in January 2012 and has quadrupled in size in the last twelve months, helped by the addition of four new partner appointments.
