They have worked with clients such as DePuy International Ltd, Stanmore Implants, Leigh Day, Kennedys, Moloney & Co Solicitors, Irwin Mitchell, Blake Lapthorn, and JRI Orthopaedics.
The largest project undertaken by Gordon and Alister (via the London Implant Retrieval Centre (LIRC) is the implant storage and inspection service for failed metal on metal hips. Additionally, they have both undertaken a number of Expert Witness consultancies for various law firms relating primarily to failed metal on metal implants.
A number of Gordon's and Alister's consultancies are undertaken in conjunction with the LIRC, which is a retrieval program established to provide independent insight and guidance to assist implant manufacturers, medical professionals, and regulatory agencies by analysing and publishing data on failed hip components, and it has also developed new protocols for retrieval and the detection of faulty implants.
