Dargie boosts Balfour+Manson’s litigation team

Kiera DargieLegal firm Balfour+Manson has strengthened its litigation team with the appointment of medical negligence lawyer Kiera Dargie, as Senior Associate.

Ms Dargie joins from The Medical Protection Society where she was medical negligence litigator within its Pathway 4B team. As part of this, she represented doctors in South Africa on a number of highly complex medical negligence claims.

Prior to this, she spent seven years with Anderson Strathern where her case portfolio included complex claims in areas such as obstetric, ophthalmic and dental negligence. 

Ms Dargie was a member of the sub-group of the personal injury committee of the Scottish Civil Justice Council, which at the time was considering pre-action protocols in medical negligence claims and in 2015, she completed a one-year secondment at the Lord President’s Private Office. Whilst there, she was at the forefront of discussions surrounding the implementation of the court reforms.

Welcoming her to Balfour+Manson, Chairman Elaine Motion commented: “Medical negligence remains a significant area of specialism and we are delighted that Kiera has joined us with her wealth of experience gained across a broad reach of national and international work. She will be a valuable addition to our Litigation team.”
