With over thirty years experience in the legal profession I joined Moore Blatch in 2015 as a partner responsible for new personal injury business relating to health and social care.
I have handled a wide range of personal injury claims and have a special interest in major trauma cases, particularly brain injury, spinal injury and amputations. I also have considerable experience handling inquests and inquiries, and was commended by Chambers UK guide for having a “significant reputation” as an “extremely polished performer” offering “high levels of expertise”. I have been involved in a number of serious and highly publicised investigations that have had substantial national significance, some of which are detailed below.
In 2008, I received the Bar and Law Society’s ‘Rising Star: Advocate In The Face Of Adversity’ award following success in a landmark employers’ liability suicide, heard in the House of Lords. I also have significant media experience having featured in the print press and on TV, most notably appearing on Newsnight with Jeremey Paxman and Channel 4’s Dispatches.
My work occurs across all of the firm’s offices in order to build relationships with health and social care providers particularly in and around London and the South.
