I specialise in medical negligence claims on behalf of injured adults and children. I am a Legal Director in the medical negligence team and have specialised in this area of law since 2006.
I have been recognised by the independent legal directories as a specialist in my field for over 10 years and I have settled cases for adults and children in a wide range of claims.
I joined Fieldfisher in June 2023 having worked at another top-ranked firm for over 15 years. I deal with all aspects of claims, including birth injury and acquired brain injury claims, claims relating to fatal accidents, those involving gynaecological injuries following childbirth, and those due to the delayed diagnosis of cancer. I also act for families at Inquests.
I also advise families in investigating cases where babies have died shortly after birth and represent families at Inquests.
I also have a notable practice in dealing with catastrophic personal injury cases including road traffic collisions, employer's liability and public liability claims, working with partner Mark Bowman.
My clients are often in very difficult financial or emotional situations and I feel that they are grateful for both my professional and honest approach and my sensible advice in dealing with their cases.
