Nisha Sharma

Principal Lawyer

I understand that a medical negligence claim is very personal and that clients often approach me when things are very difficult. I am absolutely committed to helping them achieve the compensation they need to rebuild their lives. The Legal 500 2022 edition describes me as ‘an excellent lawyer who really goes the extra mile for her clients.’

Get to know Nisha

I am a Principal Lawyer working across the Brighton and London offices, handling all types of medical negligence cases including birth injuries, delays in diagnosis, surgical errors and fatal claims.

Career highlights

I count all my cases as career highlights as I understand the importance of making a difference for each of my clients. My focus remains on the individuals I am representing and making sure that I explore every possible avenue to achieve the very best settlement for them.

I have worked on notable cases throughout my career and the experience gained on these has enabled me to work with and learn from leaders in their fields and push forward much needed change, such as with the Ian Paterson litigation which was featured heavily in the media and highlighted the importance of regulation particularly in the private arena.

I am currently handling a number of claims against University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust in relation to the criminal investigation, Operation Bramber, into the general surgery and neurosurgery departments.


I am accredited by the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel.

I have been recognised for several years in the independent legal guide, the Legal 500, which says about me:

"Nisha Sharma is an excellent and dedicated solicitor in her field. She is the complete package, with a clear mastery of the law, facts, quantum and negotiating. She has sharp insight into tricky legal issues.” (2022 Guide)
