QC’s widow wins right to sue holiday firm over his safari death - Terrence Donovan quoted in The Times

11 October 2019

Earlier this week, Terrence Donovan, a partner in Kingsley Napley's Medical Negligence and Personal Injury team and representing Lady Christine Brownlie, was quoted in The TimesIrish Legal News and Scottish Legal News about his client's right to have her case heard in an English court:

Terrence Donovan, Lady Brownlie’s solicitor and a partner at Kingsley Napley, said: “She was also injured in the accident, and is deeply disappointed by the manner in which this otherwise indefensible claim has been repeatedly dragged through the appeal process. To quote from submissions that were made to the High Court: justice delayed is justice denied.”

Terrence Donovan, Lady Brownlie’s solicitor, said his client was disappointed by the way “this otherwise indefensible claim has been repeatedly dragged through the appeal process.”
