We established a specialist medical law department and assist clients with legal advice in a wide range of medical malpractice matters as both prosecution and defence attorneys. These matters involve both civil claims where professional negligence is alleged, as well as complaints against professionals lodged with their medical or professional bodies.
These professional bodies include, amongst others, the HPCSA (Health Professionals Council of South Africa), the SACSSP (South African Council for Social Services Professionals) and SAASWIP (the South African Association of Social Workers in Private Practice).
We also act for professional indemnity insurers who carry the professional negligence risks of professionals in a wide range of medical fields.
We also advise medical professionals as direct clients in all fields of medical law directly, outside insurance arrangements.
