Bridging the gap between Medicine & the Law

Mr Thomas Kossmann, an international orthopaedic surgeon founded Lex Medicus, together with Associate Professor Cristina Morganti-Kossmann and their daughter Giulia, after becoming interested in medico-legal matters and medicine. This is where our slogan ‘Bridging the gap between Medicine & the Law’ was born.

What sets us apart is our unique beginning – founded by a doctor and a scientist. This distinctive blend of medical insight and scientific rigour forms the foundation of our success. Recognising a distinct gap in the market, we have become renowned for the exceptional quality of our reports, the depth of medical expertise and long-lasting partnerships.

Over time, our family has expanded, and we now proudly stand alongside 30+ talented professionals.
