• I am a Solicitor in the Clinical Risk Department specialising in clinical negligence claims. 

    Since joining Bevan Brittan, I have gained experience in defending a broad range of claims on behalf of NHS Resolution acting mainly on behalf of Trusts in the South West and Gloucestershire area.  I have a varied case load including high value and complex matters concerning cases of cerebral palsy and other birth injuries, suicide and psychiatric claims, amputation claims and claims involving neurological, surgical, orthopaedic complaints.

    I have carried out a secondment at NHS Resolution which enabled me to build relationships and better understand client needs.

    I joined the Clinical Risk Department in December 2013.  Prior to joining Bevan Brittan, the majority of my workload involved defending high value and catastrophic personal injury matters on behalf of major Insurers.  I also attended Inquests, dealt with HSE investigations and any criminal proceedings arising of the same, and I advised on policy indemnity and coverage issues.  I also have experience representing Claimants in personal injury matters, which has enabled me to develop an insight into the particular concerns driving Claimants generally and to manage expectations, which in my current role is extremely valuable when determining tactics and case strategy.
