Judith Leach

Barrister

Judith has a very high success rate in obtaining damages on behalf of her clients. She not only works hard to obtain compensation for her clients but also strives to ensure lessons have been learned and changes made by the organisation in question so similar injuries can be avoided in future.

Background

Judith was called to the Bar in 1994. Since qualifying, she has practiced almost exclusively in health law and is a highly experienced clinical negligence litigator.

Prior to studying law Judith was a senior intensive care sister and air ambulance retrieval nurse looking after a wide variety of patients including those following cardiac surgery and neurosurgery, patients with liver failure general medical critically ill patients and  acute trauma patients.

Now specialising in helping victims of medical negligence, Judith has also worked as in–house counsel for a large UK NHS Trust. As such she has an invaluable insight and knowledge of not only the NHS but also health care providers’ internal systems and practices.

One of her successful cases is now used anonymously as a teaching aid by a large NHS Trust to prevent similar injuries. Judith is also a trained mediator.
