I joined Simpson Millar in 2006 as a Partner having previously set up and developed, over a period of 10 years, a large Clinical Negligence team and Serious Injuries Unit at another firm in Leeds. Much of my work is on behalf of children injured at birth, who suffer Cerebral Palsy or Erbs Palsy. In addition to clinical negligence cases, I conducted several class actions.

Quoted in Legal 500 2015 as follows: The ‘hugely experienced and capable’ Neil Fearn leads the team at Simpson Millar LLP, which is known for obstetric claims involving brain trauma.

Quoted in Chambers and Partners 2016 as follows: Neil Fearn of Simpson Millar LLP is “quick to identify the real issues in the case and very practical in his approach,” according to impressed sources.
