Alex Tengroth

In brief

I am a specialist Medical Negligence Solicitor and an AvMA Panel Member, with more than 15 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 the past

I read law at Keele and the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in London.

I then trained at Harman & Harman Solicitors in Canterbury and qualified as a solicitor in December 2004.

After moving to national law firm Shoosmiths, where I handled a wide range of complex and high value medical negligence and personal injury cases, I returned to Canterbury in February 2008 to work at Fairweathers Solicitors LLP with a number of former colleagues.

In Work

My caseload encompasses the broad range of medical negligence matters, although I have a particular interest in ophthalmic, surgical and orthopaedic claims.

In the last 3 years (to end 2020) I have recovered damages in excess of £5 million for my clients.

In my spare time

I am an avid (and largely frustrated) golfer, and can often be seen struggling my way round a golf course in Kent at the weekend! I also enjoy travelling, particularly European city-breaks.
