Strong in health field

I was most disappointed to open the edition of The Lawyer for 8 November and to find on page 14 an article on National Health Service legal services, which included a table of solicitors' firms active in the field. We were not mentioned.

Since the merger of Le Brasseurs with J Tickle & Co on 1 June, we are now one of the largest and most influential firms in this discipline. We have 34 fee earners working on NHS case work.

Both the predecessor firms had been extensively involved in the health law field since the beginning of the NHS in 1948 and for a long time before that.
