About Liz Oaten
Liz Oaten I am a partner at Iacopi Palmer solicitors and since qualification in 1987 I have specialised in handling clinical negligence cases complemented by my post graduate degree (LLM) in the legal aspects of medical practice and my accreditation as a mediator. I am a member of all three specialist clinical negligence schemes, the APIL accredited clinical negligence specialist scheme the AvMA clinical negligence panel, The Law Society's Clinical Negligence accreditation scheme. I am also an assessor for the APIL clinical negligence panel and an APIL senior litigator. I have extensive practical experience in managing, including to trial, a varied high value and high profile clinical negligence claims portfolio securing multi million pound settlements for Claimant’s across a broad spectrum of specialities including Obstetric, Gynaecology, Neurosurgery, Urology and Plastic Surgery. I also have experience in pursuing professional negligence claims against solicitors arising out of their poor management of clinical negligence claims. I have considerable advocacy experience, including representation of clients at inquests. I have been involved in a number of cases which have set legal precedents and have been reported in legal journals. I am regularly personally recommended to clients and I undertake work across the country. I have been acclaimed by clients for: ‘A brilliant and professional service throughout’ ‘Great result in a complex case’ ‘Very honest, reliable and very professional’ ‘I was treated as a person, I was shown empathy and I felt like a friend’ ‘We were treated fairly and with sensitivity at all times’ I have developed a close network of trusted medical advisors who assist in the screening process of new claims and I undertake work funded by a variety of organisations and regularly acts for clients on a conditional fee basis (no win no fee).
