South-West firm Clarke Willmott & Clarke has taken the unusual step of appointing a doctor to its clinical negligence team.
Dr Baratha Devi trained at University College Hospitals London and recently took her LPC. She joins Clarke Willmott as a paralegal and medical assistant based at the firm's regional law centre in Blackbrook, near Taunton.

He said: "Our approach has always been to pursue vigorously good cases and to weed out those cases without merit as early as possible."
