Experience

  • I qualified in 2003, having been a trainee with BLM. I was promoted to associate in 2008 and made partner in 2013.
  • I specialise in abuse claims and handle sensitive cases, including large group actions on behalf of insurers, schools, public bodies, local authorities and charities. 
  • I also specialise in claims involving psychiatric injuries namely stress, bullying and harassment claims and have achieved numerous trial wins and discontinuances in this area.
  • I acted for the defendant in the case of Raggett v Society of Jesus Trust for Roman Catholic Purposes (2012) where a former city lawyer sought £5million damages for non-recent sexual abuse but was awarded £55,000, with BLM securing three years costs protection.
