Samantha Silver
Partner at Kennedys


Samantha leads Kennedys’ products law and life sciences team. She has over 22 years of experience and became a partner in the London office in 2015. She advises on recalls, public inquiries and product liability claims (including group litigation orders), with a focus on the medical devices, pharmaceutical and consumer sectors. The claims she handles are often commercially sensitive and are frequently cross-border in nature.

She represents insurers and manufacturers in some of the largest and most high-profile matters, overseeing claims in the UK and internationally. Notably, Samantha has led hugely significant cases which have shaped the development of product liability law in the UK and beyond. She has headed not only the team which successfully defended the DePuy ULTAMET Metal on Metal Hip Litigation, a complex product liability group action culminating in a landmark judgment in the High Court but also the team which successfully defended medical device manufacturers in the UK Supreme Court in the case of Hastings v Finsbury Orthopaedics Ltd and Stryker UK Ltd).
