I am a partner and head of the Court of Protection team.
I qualified as a solicitor in 1987. I specialised in PI and clinical negligence litigation for 20 years before moving to private client law in 2006.
I am experienced in the following areas:
I have particular expertise in acting as professional deputy for brain injured clients with PI and clinical negligence settlements. I also act as deputy for clients with dementia, mental health problems and learning disability.
I act as expert witness in personal injury litigation to provide the court with details of the likely deputyship costs. I am instructed by both claimants and defendants.
I regularly publish articles in PI journals dealing with mental capacity and deputyship issues as they effect PI lawyers.
I am recommended in Legal 500. My 2017 Legal 500 entry describes me as “quick and thorough”. My 2018 Legal 500 entry describes me as “a team head who has ‘a complete understanding of this practice area, and provides clear and precise advice’.”
I have been referred cases by the Official Solicitor, numerous Personal Injury and clinical negligence law firms, barristers and financial advisors.
