For the second successive year, a partner from BLB Solicitors has accepted an invitation to address the country’s leading medico-legal pain conference.
Last year, partner Mark Tawn was invited to address the conference, which is held annually at Peterhouse, Cambridge.
This year, partner Richard Lowes fielded questions from the delegates on the effect of the recent Jackson reforms on the provision of expert evidence. The subject provoked considerable debate and it was agreed that it should be revisited at the 2014 conference.
“”It was a considerable privilege being asked to speak””, said Richard, “”particularly after my colleague Mark Tawn spoke last year. It’s clear that the Jackson reforms have created considerable uncertainty in several areas connected with expert evidence and I hope that I was able to clarify some of the issues.””
The conference attracts over 100 doctors and lawyers with an specialist interest in chronic pain.
