Elinor Laidlaw

Senior Associate Solicitor - Medical Negligence

Elinor has a professional and approachable manner, and she understands that clients have often been through devastating circumstances before deciding to pursue a medical negligence case. Elinor works closely with individual clients and their families, and ensures that the legal process is explained in a straightforward manner with the aim of achieving the best possible result for each client.

Elinor's caseload encompasses a wide range of complex medical issues, including acting for clients in cases involving delay in diagnosis and treatment of cancer, orthopaedic and limb amputation cases, gynaecological cases, and cases where clients have sadly passed away as a result of negligence, including representing bereaved families during Inquest investigations and hearings.

Elinor also works alongside Keith Thomas, Head of the Injury Services Team, and Matthew Owen, Head of the Medical Negligence Team, by providing assistance and support to clients and their families in cases where a client has suffered a brain injury as a result of medical negligence.

A member of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) and a National Committee Representative for the West Wales Junior Lawyers Division, Elinor represents junior lawyers in the south west Wales area, and voices any issues or concerns that they may have during the bi-annual National Committee meetings at The Law Society in London.

A graduate of Aberystwyth University with a First Class Honours Law degree in 2015, Elinor went on to gain her Masters degree in Law as well as completing her Legal Practice Course at Swansea University in 2016, gaining a Distinction in both qualifications. Elinor commenced her training contract with JCP in September 2016, and qualified as a Solicitor in September 2018.

Outside of work, Elinor enjoys to travel and loves spending quality time with family and socialising with friends. Elinor also enjoys baking and is a keen cook.

Elinor is a fluent Welsh speaker and is very happy to provide legal advice through the medium of Welsh.
