About Clare Flavin

Clare specialises in the area of medical negligence, having gained experience in a leading Medical Negligence Law firm prior to joining Orpen Franks. Clare has extensive experience in this area and has litigated on behalf of clients in a vast array of medical negligence claims to include birth injuries, orthopaedic injuries, cosmetic injuries, general surgical injuries, fatal injuries actions, delayed diagnosis claims and dental claims. Clare has extensive experience in all aspects of the litigation process having represented clients in the High Court, the Coroner’s Court and at mediation.
