I qualified as a barrister in 2014 and both before and immediately after qualification, gained experience working in house with some of the country’s leading solicitors in judicial review and education disputes. Consequently, I have had the privilege of being involved directly with members of the public in some of the leading education and social care cases of this decade and have experience representing individuals, central and local government, corporates, school and colleges.
When representing individuals, I pride myself on my exceptional client care skills, ensuring that clients are empowered to resolve their disputes, whilst understanding the cost implications of their actions.
When representing organisations and public bodies, alongside providing excellent client care, I seek to ensure that, as well as resolving ongoing disputes, a risk based approach is adopted to try and prevent future issues arising.
With 7 years’ experience in advising, representing and assisting individuals, local authorities, schools, colleges, as well as acting as a non executive director to a higher education institution, I am well placed to advise anyone who has a dispute within the education sector. Whilst I am happy to assist on any education related dispute, or provide advice or documentation, my particular areas of interest are:
Recent cases that I have been involved in include:
Outside of legal work, I am widely published having acted as a contributing editor and author on two leading education law textbooks, alongside authoring various articles across industry and legal publications.
