More dentists and the law

We read with interest your article "Dentist's brush…" For the record, Alexander Harris

& Co were pipped at the post by Bolt Burdon because our own dentist-turned-barrister, David Corless-Smith, has been litigating dental negligence cases since March 1997. He brings to bear eight years experience of dentistry as well as advocacy skills. Bolt Burdon takes very seriously the Legal Aid Board's concern about the costs of litigating claims of modest value without denying clients access to justice on important matters of principle and uses staff with a medical background to offer clients practical, cost-effective advice.
