Steve Evans joins Fairweathers

We are delighted to announce that Steve Evans has today joined our Medical Negligence team.

Steve has 18 years experience as a Personal Injury Lawyer.

He trained in Oxford, then worked for many years dealing with complex and high value Personal Injury cases, on behalf of Defendants, occupying senior positions both in-house and in private practice with leading firms such as Badhams Law and Beachcrofts.

Then, in 2007, he moved to Rosenblatt Solicitors to take a senior role in the Atomic Veterans Litigation Group action against the Ministry of Defence, which position he held through the duration of the litigation up until 2012.

During this time, Steve was responsible for putting together and managing a 20 strong fee earner legal team, dealing with disclosure of official documents running to nearly 250,000 pages, liaising with leading international scientists and medical experts, appearing on national and local media as well as managing relationships with Veteran’s organisations.

From there, Steve moved to Hogan Lovells International where he acted as a senior consultant preparing a group of Ionising Radiation cases for appeals in the First Tier Tribunal, War Pensions and Armed Forces Compensation Chamber.

This involved him, again, working with leading medics and scientists and embroiling himself in complex disclosure applications against the Secretary of State for Defence.

Fairweathers Solicitors LLP’s Chief Executive, and Head of Medical Negligence, Nick Fairweather, commented:-

“Steve has an impressive CV and unrivalled experience in dealing with heavy weight, complex injury claims which will stand him in good stead in joining our medical team here.  We are delighted that he is joining us.”

Steve himself commented:-

“Fairweathers are a young, progressive practice with an excellent reputation in medical law throughout Kent and beyond.

Dealing with the Veteran’s cases, I have very much enjoyed representing Claimants and engaging with complex medical and other evidence, this experience and my longstanding experience in personal injury, attracts me to the medical work here which I am very much looking forward to engaging with. It may also be that some of my historic experience in acting ‘for the other side’ will stand me in good stead!”
