Maria Repanos

Head of Clinical Negligence (Manchester)

Service Area



I am passionate about representing clients and exceeding their expectations. Often, clients will have very specific goals about what they wish to achieve through taking legal action, and I make it a priority to work collaboratively with them, so their cases are led in the way they wish, within the remit of the legal process.

Career Highlights

I’ve secured significant settlements for a number of clients with cerebral palsy, where allegations of negligence were made in relation to the management of their births and deliveries.

I work very closely with my clients and their families in order to achieve high damages awards, to ensure they benefit from appropriate rehabilitation and care packages as well as purchasing suitable homes, which meet their needs. Working collaboratively my clients helps them to become as independent as possible, subject to the nature and extent of their injuries.

I have also acted for families in connection with deaths of loved ones following negligent medical treatment. In these cases I have represented them at inquest where appropriate, and subsequently secured substantial awards of damages for them, which has afforded them financial security in very difficult circumstances.
