I am a Director in the Medical Negligence team. I am passionate about my work, taking the time to understand exactly what each client needs, how injuries affect their lives and how things can improve.
I have wide experience running a range of cases involving birth injury, brain injury and spinal cord injury.
My current cases include:
- Representing throughout inquest the family of a baby who died during routine surgery for the repair of an inguinal hernia.
- Achieving a multi-million pound settlement for a young woman who suffered devastating neurological injury following surgery for scoliosis.
- Representing a mother who was not told that her baby would be born with Down's syndrome, despite positive antenatal testing.
- Acting for a client who suffered a hypoxic brain injury as a result of a malfunctioning naso-gastric tube.
I have developed a sub-speciality representing the families of babies with late diagnosis of hip dysplasia and am currently running more than 20 such cases. Because of this, I work closely with the Charity STEPS, providing training for their helpline staff and talking to beneficiaries who want to consider bringing a claim.

I was quoted in the local and national press regarding my case involving the death of a baby at the Evelina London children’s hospital.
I am involved in Fieldfisher's pro bono activities, including working closely with MENCAP, the Prisoners' Advice Service, St Mungo's and Save the Rhino. Colleagues and I successfully appealed against a local authority decision to cut care of an adult with significant additional needs.
