Huw Thomas, Solicitor & Associate Director
Huw qualified as a Solicitor in 1984, following a Law Degree at the University of Leicester 1978 to 1981, followed by one year at College of Law Guildford 1981-1982. He then spent two years training where he gained substantial experience in personal injury work on behalf of several very large Trades Unions.
From 1984 to 1992, Huw conducted general civil litigation at a firm of Solicitors in Hertfordshire before joining a large Cambridge Practice in 1992 to specialise in the field of personal injury practice. Overall, Huw has gained 32 years of litigation experience, specialising in Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence work since 1992 and Clinical Negligence claims only since 2009.
Huw is an Associate Director of the firm and specialises in Clinical and Dental Negligence Claims. He is also the Director in charge of the specialist Clinical and Medical Negligence Team. This team has a wealth of experience in representing clients in this complex field of law. Huw uses specialist medical experts and experienced Barristers and is proactive in processing a claim in a professional manner. Huw appreciates that the effects of Clinical Negligence can be devastating not just for the victim but also for their family and his approach is therefore to act with compassion and understanding whilst delivering an efficient and effective service.
All potential Clinical or Dental Negligence claims are reviewed by Huw in the first instance and then allocated to one of the specialist solicitors in the team.
