“Dr Brown’s evidence in Court was excellent. Her report was clear and therefore she was not required to expand much on it in evidence. On a personal note, I am grateful to Richard Williams-Lees for all his assistance with this case, which has not been straightforward…”
- Kingsley Napley LLP
“The Metropolitan Police and Counsel were more than happy with how accommodating Mr Welch was in addition to the quality of the information in his report and the quality of his evidence. Without him, we would not have secured a conviction. In particular, he explained technical jargon in layman’s terms which was very helpful for the jury to understand the complexities of vascular medicine. Thank you also to Richard Williams-Lees and Anthony Evans for their assistance in this case."
- The Metropolitan Police
