My Expertise

I specialise in insurance-backed product liability cases, complex PL claims, fire/floods and construction related claims. My experience covers automotive, manufacturing and utility clients. I also act on liability claims for public sector clients.

Read more about me

Motors are in my DNA. Fortunately, I am able to bring my enthusiasm from outside the office into my legal work, as I focus on litigation and all things automotive, with a particular specialism in product and public liability claims

Much of my work involves examining the contractual position, terms and conditions and, in most cases, the question of insurance policy cover.  I am well versed in both litigation and mediation in order to resolve disputes, frequently multi-party.

I also represent clients in connection with fatal accidents, including Inquests and HSE prosecutions – in essence anything involving reputational risk.

For many years I have acted on all types of claims following fires, escapes of water and construction problems in addition to novel disease claims. 

I won Birmingham Law Society Partner of the Year 2014 and was shortlisted Business Woman of the Year 2013. I am chair for the Forum of Insurance Lawyers Public Sector Focus Team, Birmingham Civic Society Ambassadors, and Birmingham Law Society Personal Injury Committee. I also attend the Birmingham Law Society as a Council member (President 2008/09).

In 2012 Legal 500 reported that I am "very thorough" and a "very impressive negotiator" in the field of commercial litigation in the West Midlands.
