Alex Tengroth

In brief

I am a specialist Clinical Negligence Solicitor and an AvMA Panel Member, with almost 20 years’ experience in this challenging but rewarding area of practice. I have represented clients and families in the County Court, the High Court, the Court of Appeal, and at Inquests.

In Work

My caseload encompasses the full range of clinical negligence matters, although I have a particular interest and specialism in ophthalmic, ENT surgery, general surgery and orthopaedic claims.

In the last 4 years (to end 2021) I have recovered damages of approximately £20 million for my clients.
Of particular significance, a settlement with a capitalised value of around £14 million was secured in late 2021 for one client as a result of an injury sustained at birth.

In my spare time

I am a keen (but frustrated) golfer. I also enjoy travelling, and have been lucky enough to see some amazing sites around the world (including Machu Picchu in Peru).
