Our professional clerking staff can help you identify the right barrister for your case.

Katarina Sydow specialises in public law, clinical negligence and personal injury. She is described in Chambers & Partners as “…a gifted advocate who has an incisive mind and an ability to distil a case into simple points”. She regularly undertakes work well beyond her level of call.

Katarina acts on behalf of a diverse range of clients including individuals, government departments, NHS Trusts, local authorities and the Official Solicitor in the Court of Protection. She is a member of the Attorney General’s C Panel of Junior Counsel to the Crown.

Katarina has a first-class degree in Modern History from Oxford University, completed her Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) with distinction and achieved an outstanding grade in the Bar Professional Training Course.

Clinical Negligence

Katarina accepts instructions from claimants and defendants. Her current caseload as sole counsel encompasses claims arising out of plastic, orthopaedic and vascular surgery, obstetric and midwifery care, and the delayed diagnosis of cancer. Katarina also has experience of secondary victim claims for psychiatric harm within a clinical context and regularly provides training on the same topic.

As junior counsel Katarina is instructed in high value claims arising out of catastrophic injuries at birth and has expertise in drafting schedules of loss.

As a corollary of her clinical negligence practice, Katarina is instructed frequently in medical inquests, acting for bereaved families and NHS Trusts. In 2014 she was seconded to the inquests team at Capsticks, where her experience as in-house counsel included representing the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust at an eight-day jury inquest into a death in police custody.
