Frome solicitor moves on

WELL known local solicitor David Gazzard is leaving Frome and joining the Bath and Wiltshire based firm BLB Solicitors as a partner.

David, a clinical negligence specialist, qualified as a solicitor in 1993 and was previously a partner at Frome based FDC Law.

He is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and has seen a number of his high profile cases reported by the legal press, including a case involving serious brain damage which was considered by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

David regularly deals with cases of delayed diagnosis often involving cancer, birth defects, negligent prescription of drugs and failed joint replacement. He almost exclusively acts for clients on a “no win no fee” basis.

David commented, “Although I am sad to be leaving Frome, I am really looking forward to starting a new chapter in my career with such a renowned, service led firm. I am confident that we can continue to provide specialist support to our valued client base.”
