Helen Dolan

Helen is Partner and Head of the clinical negligence department having specialised in this type of work for nearly 20 years. She is passionate about the work she does because she has seen how compensation awards change people’s lives for the better.

She is a mother of two and a keen netball and tennis player and, if she were not a lawyer, she would be a singer.

Helen loves to travel as much as she can, although she works long hours, and speaks French and Italian. When she retires, she’d love to go back to college and study poetry.

Chambers 2019 says:
Helen Dolan regularly handles complex claims, such as those related to psychiatric care. She has further expertise in spinal injury, surgical negligence and cerebral palsy claims, as well as breach of duty cases. One source states: "Her attention to detail and knowledge of the case inside and out was exemplary."

Previous comments from Chambers 2018 included the following: she is highly praised by a client who states "Helen is scrupulous in her preparation and organisation, highly experienced, and her knowledge and insight was extremely reassuring."

What others say:
Helen Dolan is one of the most experienced and tenacious solicitors around when it comes to clinical negligence litigation. Nothing fazes her and she fights hard for every client.
