Tim Deeming, partner and medical negligence specialist in Cambridge

How can I help you?

I am a Partner at Tees, supporting the top tier Legal 500 Medical Negligence and Personal Injury Team here which I joined in 2018.

We support vulnerable clients and their families through often difficult challenges, delivering fantastic life-changing help that makes a real difference. To be part of such a leading team and have the opportunity to both learn from them and help the team grow is a privilege.

Delivering what you really need

I have over a decade of experience working exclusively on medical negligence claims. My areas of particular expertise include:

  • Catastrophic injury claims
  • Birth trauma claims
  • Brain injury claims
  • Spinal injury and spinal surgery claims
  • Limb loss and amputation claims.

In every case I work on, I strive to ensure that lessons are learned and that patient safety is improved.

What else should you know?

I studied law at the UEA before going on to specialise in medical negligence claims and finished in 2002. 

My professional accreditations include:

  • Spinal Cord Injury Specialist with APIL
  • Law Society Panel for Clinical Negligence
  • Society of Clinical Injury Lawyers.

I have worked on a number of high-profile cases, helping clients secure life-changing compensation and an understanding of what happened during their medical care.

Outside of my family I enjoy outdoor pursuits and also keep bees.

But we can help you wherever you are in England and Wales.


Mr T


From initial contact through to settlement, the Tees Law team in Cambridge provided a professional and compassionate service. I was ably guided and provided with timely well considered advice that has ultimately led to a settlement in line with my expectations – thank you Sophie Stuart and Tim Deeming.

"Tim Deeming was the partner we dealt with, and he was always available to answer any questions or issues we had. He guided us through the minefield of two inquests, mediation, and always with a sensitive approach to our feelings. He was outstanding in his advice and also realistic which was very important as to the expectations of the legal process. Finally he was encouraging when we had to give evidence and was always on hand to help with statements and any evidence we needed to provide."

"Tim Deeming is supportive, friendly, knowledgeable, willing and comforting. I feel protected in his care."

"Tim Deeming has been outstanding for me. This has been a very personal, emotional and challenging event for me. I know that Tees are a business, but I’ve only ever felt like an individual; one who matters, one who deserves fair treatment."

Tim Deeming took me through the settlement process step by step and was a master tactician in the final negotiation, who I was proud to have represent me. Katheryn Riggs gave me all the support to file the claim. Tees draw on their vast experience to bring the very best medical experts to the table.
