For a consecutive year, Richard Barcan, founding Partner of Barcan Woodward, has been ranked as a ‘Star Individual’ for his Clinical Negligence expertise. A ‘Star’ is the highest ranking to be applied and is only awarded to individuals with exceptional recommendations in their practice field.
Richard Harries, Partner, has maintained his Band 2 individual ranking for his Clinical Negligence (Mainly Claimant) expertise in Bristol and the surrounding area. Marina van Vessem, Partner, has been recognised with a Band 2 individual ranking (from Band 3) for her Personal Injury (Mainly Claimant) expertise, also in Bristol and the surrounding area.
In addition, Myfanwy Buckeridge, Associate Solicitor and department manager, has been recommended in the Legal 500 directory for Personal Injury (Claimant). The publication states that Myfanwy is ‘very professional’ yet shows ‘compassion’. Legal 500 also notes the team’s extensive experience relating to accidents at work.
Richard Harries, Partner and head of Barcan Woodward’s Clinical Negligence team, says:
“We’re delighted that our expertise in the practice areas of clinical negligence and personal injury has again been recognised, both individually and at the firm level.
