Christopher Gibson QC joins Outer Temple Chambers
We are delighted to announce that Christopher Gibson QC, a specialist in medical law and professional negligence, has moved from Doughty Street Chambers to Outer Temple Chambers. He will complement our clinical negligence team coordinated by David Westcott QC and our personal injury team coordinated by Christopher Wilson-Smith QC.
Christopher practises in all types of high value clinical negligence and personal injury cases. He has extensive experience in cases involving injuries of maximum severity including, in particular, cases of cerebral palsy involving birth injuries to children where allegations are made in respect of the obstetric and neonatal management.
He has expertise in psychiatric cases, involving Post Traumatic Stress Disorder cases where the injury is secondary to clinical negligence, as well as cases of psychiatric negligence. He also undertakes non-medical personal injury cases, and he has considerable experience of legal negligence cases arising out of personal injury and medical cases where the allegation is that they have been mishandled or under-settled. As a legally qualified chair of Fitness to Practise Committees of the General Pharmaceutical Council, he builds on his extensive regulatory experience.
According to Chambers and Partners, solicitors find him an absolute “joy to work with.” He is said to be a “very incisive advocate” who is “particularly good with clients.” He can easily deal with complicated cases that require a wide range of medical expertise.
