Langleys Solicitors has promoted Andrew Cragg to lead its medical law team.
Andrew takes on the role from Sally-Ann Robinson, who retires this month after more than 30 years with the law firm.
Sally-Ann will continue to act as a consultant at Langleys. She said: “I have had a very rewarding career with Langleys, helping many people to seek justice and improve health practices.
“Langleys’ medical law specialism has an excellent reputation for delivering professional and sensitive services to people at distressing times in their lives. This will continue with Andrew at the helm.”
Andrew is a partner in medical law and has worked at Langleys for almost 10 years. He has already achieved recognition of his expertise by attaining membership of both the AvMA (Action against Medical Accidents) and The Law Society’s specialist clinical negligence panels.
Andrew is currently involved in a number of cases with high profile medical issues, such as the management of septicaemia. He specialises in claims relating to cerebral palsy, brain injury and misdiagnosis of cancer. He is acknowledged in Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 as a specialist in preventable suicides.
Andrew said: “I am very pleased to be picking up the reins from Sally-Ann. We have an extensive clinical negligence team and will continue to support people and their families while at the same time influencing and promoting best practice in health care through the cases we take on."
