Experience

I am a solicitor in the Dispute Resolution & Litigation team at Bates Wells. I advise both for-profit and not-for-profit clients on a range of contentious matters.

As well as advisory work, I have extensive litigation experience, and have experience in public law and judicial review proceedings.

Prior to training to become a solicitor I volunteered as a legal intern at the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office in Cape Town, South Africa. This involved providing legal advice and representation to people unable to afford legal help on a range of matters, including immigration. I also volunteered as a Victim Support Worker for the charity Victim Support.

  • I have acted in numerous judicial review cases against public bodies.
  • I was part of the legal team that brought a challenge against the Secretary of State for the Home Department for unlawfully detaining vulnerable clients.
