Kay Kelly joined Lanyon Bowdler in September 2007. She is able to offer over 20 years post qualification experience, and brings to the partnership a wealth of knowledge and skill.

Kay’s partnership status complements her new role as head of the firm’s clinical negligence team. A member of the Law Society’s Accredited Clinical Negligence Panel, Kay has extensive experience in this field, having acted for clients in a wide variety of cases including; diagnostic error by GP or hospital, clinical mismanagement of labour and gynaecological procedures, catastrophic brain and spinal injuries, cases involving upper and lower limb amputations, as well as delays in the diagnosis of cancer.

She has also handled fatal accident cases including providing representation at inquests. With total dedication to client care Kay has regularly obtained large awards of compensation through negotiation, court and mediation on behalf of victims of medical accidents.

Lanyon Bowdler’s clinical negligence department has a national reputation and is recognised by the Legal 500. The team consists of very experienced solicitors, legal executives, in house nurses and an in house doctor, together with support staff.

Three solicitors are members of the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Panel; the firm is on Headway - the Brain Injury Association Personal Injury Solicitors List, as well as the approved list for the Child Brain Injury Trust.

Most recently the team have been included on the Spinal Injuries Association’s (SIA) approved list of clinical negligence solicitors for 2012. The department has expanded fourfold in the last five years and will be joined by two new solicitors in early November.

Managing partner David Battisby said: “We are delighted to welcome Kay to the partnership, she is known for her client care skills, her thorough and forensic approach to cases and her ability to maximise damages.”
