Rachel Brown appointed to offer specialist clinical negligence legal advice

Law firm Slater & Gordon will now offer clinical negligence legal advice in Yorkshire after appointing specialist lawyer Rachel Brown to its Sheffield office.

Rachel is the first clinical negligence lawyer to work from Slater & Gordon’s Sheffield office. She joins from Irwin Mitchell Sheffield where she spent more than four years. Rachel  specialises in all types of clinical negligence cases, including birth injury, inquests, CJD cases, neurological and orthopaedic injury cases.

Rachel said: “Clinical negligence has a devastating impact on the lives of victims and their families.

“It is an honour to help people in Sheffield and Yorkshire through what is very often one of the most difficult times of their lives and ultimately help them get the justice they deserve.”

Simon Allen, head of Slater & Gordon’s Sheffield office said:  “We are thrilled to have a solicitor the calibre of Rachel joining our Sheffield team.

“Clinical negligence is an area that can be incredibly upsetting for our clients. We look forward to providing a world class legal service to clients seeking help in this area and to further growing our team in the future.”

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
