Head of our Clinical Negligence Department is Mervyn Fudge who has over 30 years of unrivalled experience in the area of Clinical Negligence. Mervyn was a pioneer in this area when very few solicitors specialised in this field of law and as a result has been at the forefront of several important and ground-breaking cases. Mervyn is, in legal terms a `heavy weight` in the Clinical Negligence world and BLJ are pleased to have him on board to head up, not only our Clinical Negligence team but also as lead solicitor for the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry team.
Mervyn has been involved in several previous Public Inquiries and has also been lead solicitor in two large litigation actions involving group litigation orders, which gives him unrivalled experience both on an individual and collective basis.
Mervyn was awarded `Lawyer of the Week` in 2004 by The Times newspaper for his work on Organ Retention. Mervyn was also listed in The Legal 500 – the Who`s Who in the Law – in 2001 and 2002 and was also named in `Legal Experts 2005`.
