• I am a medical law specialist working within the Clinical Risk department. My current practice involves representing NHS bodies, local authorities and independent providers of education, health and social care before the Coroner’s Court, Court of Protection and Independent Inquiries. I am also instructed by clients to provide advice on matters of compliance involving mental health and social care legislation.

    I have particular experience in healthcare, professional discipline and regulatory law. Having acted on behalf of healthcare regulators, I appeared before Fitness to Practise Committees and presented interim orders, final and substantive review hearings across the UK.

    As a result, I am experienced in investigating, presenting and advising on a wide range of Fitness to Practise issues spanning allegations of sexual misconduct, dishonesty, integrity, record keeping, deficient professional performance and breaches of professional standards.

    Due to the nature of these proceedings, I worked on numerous high profile and sensitive investigations that required a consideration of the wider public interest, public protection, confidence in the regulatory regime and, Article 8 - private and family life factors.

    With my experience in this sector, I am versed in speaking effectively and compassionately with multidisciplinary parties across the health, clinical and social care sectors on serious and complex matters. I always aim to provide practical, holistic and commercially sensible advice to my clients.

    Previously, I presented appeals against the Home Office on Entry Clearance refusals before the First-Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber), and represented political asylum seekers in human rights applications. I practised in Claimant-based Clinical Negligence with a focus on expert-led sequelae claims and worked in legally aided criminal defence specialising in youth gang crime.

    I have volunteered as a Witness Service volunteer in the Crown Court, specialising in supporting vulnerable victims and families of serious and violent crimes called to give evidence.
