Dr Howard practices in clinical negligence, personal injury and employment law, as well as advises a wide range of regulatory bodies, including the General Medical Council
Dr Howard practices as a medical Doctor and has undertaken research in Orthopaedic Engineering, which has been internationally recognised. He is currently undertaking a part-time PhD at Liverpool University in Surgery. This additional knowledge gives him a truly unique ability to challenge and interrogate both medical and engineering evidence alike; a powerful resource for dealing with medical causation and clinical negligence.
Dr Howard has gained an excellent reputation for his clinical negligence and personal injury work, both at a County Court and High Court level. His legal knowledge and approach is favoured by his solicitors, clients and the judiciary alike.
Dr Howard is an appointed Assistant Deputy Coroner for Preston and West Lancashire.
Dr Howard prides himself on dealing with papers promptly and is keen to work as a member of the legal team during case preparation; encouraging calls from instructing solicitors when difficulties are encountered or when informal input is required.
Dr Howard's employment law specialism led him to spend a year on secondment working for Johnson, Stokes and Master in Hong Kong, the largest Solicitor’s firm in Asia. His work in Asia focused on providing legal advice on discrimination law to several airlines such as Cathay Pacific & international banks such as HSBC and BNP Paribas, whilst he gained a unique insight into the challenges and demands made on Solicitors, which is of great benefit to those who instruct him.
A number of cases in which Dr Howard has been involved have been reported in Kemp & Kemp and Current Law.
Dr Howard offers an insightful and pragmatic approach to litigation, robust approach in court and is meticulous in his preparation, all of which are great assets in any case in which he is instructed.
