Elevating Expertise: Elizabeth Smith’s Success in Chambers and Partners
Wolferstans is thrilled to announce a significant milestone within the firm. Elizabeth Smith, our accomplished Head of the Medical Negligence team, has achieved a remarkable Band 2 ranking in the prestigious 2024 Chambers and Partners directory.
This accolade is a resounding testament to her unwavering dedication and exceptional expertise in the field of medical negligence law.
Chambers and Partners is renowned for its authoritative recognition of excellence in the legal profession. Each year, its rankings undergo meticulous scrutiny, incorporating client testimonials, peer evaluations, and comprehensive assessments of a legal professional's skills, client service, and overall performance.
Elizabeth's elevation to Band 2 is a well-deserved acknowledgment of her significant contributions to our firm and the broader legal landscape. But what truly sets us apart is not just the accolades we receive but the real impact we make.
Consider the case of Megan, who faces the challenges of cerebral palsy due to complications during her birth. Despite being categorised as low risk, Megan's mother should have received specialised care, a crucial oversight that led to distressing events. Elizabeth joined Megan's journey at just 5 months old. Tirelessly pursuing justice, Liz secured interim payments and a settlement of £4,200,000, in addition to yearly payments of £150,000 for the rest of her life, ensuring Megan's lifelong care.
This victory underscores Liz’s dedication to clients like Megan, showcasing our commitment to those affected by medical negligence. Read Megan’s full story here.

In response to this prestigious achievement, Elizabeth shares her thoughts: "This recognition by Chambers and Partners is a reflection of the dedication of our entire Medical Negligence team.
