Spencer is a specialist in serious injury cases, with almost two decades’ experience in the field. He joined Burnetts in 2017 after 14 years with Thompsons in Manchester, where he advised on high-value serious injury, industrial disease and clinical negligence claims.

The decision in the high-profile case of Holtby v Brigham & Cowan, which he appealed in 2000, is still used as a legal precedent today.
