David Corless-Smith - Joint Managing Director
David Corless-Smith is a qualified dentist and solicitor. David practised dentistry for 10 years before turning his attention to law and specialising in clinical negligence claims against doctors and dentists.
In 2000 David joined with Greg Waldron in founding the Dental Law Partnership, the first law firm in the country to act exclusively for patients in claims against dentists, and now the leading claimant firm in this area of legal expertise.
David has written extensively on dento-legal matters and was the founding President of the UK Dental Law and Ethics Forum.
David is particularly proud that the Dental Law Partnership has pioneered the use of conditional fee agreements, which have allowed patients to bring meritorious claims that they would not otherwise have been able to pursue without serious financial risk.
David is a recommended lawyer in the 2020 Legal 500.
