“Brian Dawson’s mediation style was just what was needed in a case that was causing my client considerable anxiety and concern. He was the key to securing settlement.”

Brian Dawson

Brian, an experienced Mediator, was formerly Senior Partner at Walker Smith Way Ltd, and subsequently the Head of Clinical Negligence at the Chester office of Slater and Gordon. He is a Deputy District Judge.

I have extensive experience in clinical negligence gained from over 30 years of specialising in this area. I became an AVMA Panel member in 1996 and a Law Society clinical negligence panel member in September 2002. I am currently a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, with accredited status as a Fellow and Clinical Negligence specialist.

I headed up the catastrophic injury clinical negligence team at Slater and Gordon in Chester and dealt with serious cases, including spinal and brain/birth injury claims on a daily basis.

As a mediator I have acted with parties regularly for 20 years to resolve inheritance disputes, including will validity disputes, Inheritance Act 1975 claims and administration disputes.  As a result, I have built up considerable expertise in both the complex issues of law and the personal relationships involved. “
