Anderson Strathern makes new appointment to healthcare team
Ms McCartney will work with the team’s accredited specialists in medical negligence, Judy Williamson and Robert Carr, and be joined by Gary Burton, currently based in the Edinburgh office, to bring the team’s medical negligence practice directly to the Glasgow market.
Ms McCartney joined Anderson Strathern from Thompsons, having previously worked at Harper McLeod and at RBS.
She graduated from Glasgow University and also studied at the Capital Law School in Columbus, Ohio.
She has a strong west of Scotland background as she is from Paisley and previously worked in the Glasgow offices of Thompsons. She became a solicitor advocate in 2013.
Ms McCartney is joining the healthcare team as it expands its work, having become heavily involved in the pelvic mesh cases in which many hundreds of women in Scotland, and thousands across the world, have suffered internal damage and enduring pain following the surgical insertion of medical mesh in attempt to resolve bladder problems. Anderson Strathern raised the first pelvic mesh court action in Scotland.
Robert Carr, chair of Anderson Strathern and leader of the healthcare team said: “We are delighted to welcome Natalie to the team.
“Her credentials in pursuer litigation and as a solicitor advocate mean she is ideally placed to establish the team’s Glasgow and west of Scotland presence.
“This is especially important given the team’s involvement in a wide variety of medical negligence cases and the pelvic mesh scandal which has emerged.”
