Nicholas Sandercock is a Litigation Associate, assisting the firm’s medical malpractice defense and commercial litigation clients. He enjoys the investigative nature of cases, especially those involving extensive medical record review. Nick is known for his ability to find the needle in the haystack and is able to develop defense strategies based on facts that others may miss. His knowledge and perseverance make him a valuable asset to Gross McGinley’s litigation team.
Growing up with parents in the medical field exposed Nick to the realities of medical malpractice at an early age. He realized the need for good lawyers to defend doctors doing good work, so they can continue to help people. Nick conveys this passion when representing the firm’s hospital, physician practice, and nursing home clients.
After planning his wedding in Lehigh County, Nick realized the potential costly risks couples take when signing multiple vendor contracts without an attorney’s review. Since then, he has worked with individuals and wedding industry professionals to ensure they understand the contracts they are signing and any obligations and risks they may be assuming. Nick also counsels couples who feel a vendor or venue may not have fulfilled their obligations, or is attempting to keep deposits/fees to which they are not entitled.
Prior to joining Gross McGinley, Nick worked for a large Philadelphia law firm, assisting in premises liability, products liability, professional liability, general liability matters. He also served as a summer intern for Gross McGinley’s medical malpractice defense team prior to graduating law school.
Nick’s professional experience, prior to law school, in the restaurant business as both an operator and high-level manager of training gives him a unique perspective when representing business clients in commercial litigation matters.
