Our Chief Executive Officer, Neil Fearn, has been helping injured clients for over 25 years. During this time, he has specialised in representing people who have been injured by clinical negligence, particularly those involving complex and serious injuries, mainly arising out of obstetric care. He prides himself on being tenacious and determined to get the best results for his clients.

In 2019, Chambers and Partners described Neil as a “really top-drawer lawyer” and noted him for his “market-leading experience”.

Throughout his career Neil has been responsible for establishing teams of specialist lawyers to handle complex claims, that work diligently towards providing exceptional client care.

As Chief Executive Officer, he balances acting for clients with working with his team to deliver business strategy. This allows him to continue to directly helping clients and stay in touch with how Pryers respond to our client needs, whilst focusing on delivering the business strategy, financial plan and exceptional client care.

Career History

After qualifying in 1993 Neil set up a clinical negligence department at Ison Harrison in 1996. Following this, in 2006 he moved to Simpson Millar, where he set up and grew the department. Through organic growth and acquisition, by 2016 it had grown into the third largest clinical negligence department in the country.

In 2011 he became an owner of Simpson Millar, allowing him to develop his leadership skills. In 2017 he moved on to Pryers, to become the Chief Executive Officer.

At Pryers he has concentrated on getting an operational structure in place which allows us to continue operating claims efficiently, in a client focussed environment.


Neil is a member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence panel and AVMA referral panel. He considers having the opportunity to work with the people at Pryers to be a career highlight.


He works so hard and won’t put a matter down until it is finished; he keeps at it and gets it as near-perfect as possible.

He gets good results due to his drive and determination.
