I joined Labrums Solicitors in August 2016 and am an experienced litigator and dispute resolution lawyer having practiced for many years with a regional practice in Lincolnshire, and a central London firm. I initially qualified as a barrister in 2008 before cross-qualifying to become a solicitor as I preferred to have closer contact with my clients.

I can provide clients with a personal tailored service and competitive fee structures taking into account your needs and financial resources. I am able to give practical advice, sourcing the relevant counsel when needed at appropriate budgets for the work required. I can help clients understand the advice I am giving even if it is not want they want to hear.

During my legal career, I have acted for a variety of clients including individuals, SMEs and national companies and can assist with almost any dispute. I have a particular interest in energy sustainable solutions.

As a mother to a primary school child, being able to work from home has allowed me a greater flexibility on my work/life balance.  The work system which Labrums Solicitors offer is outstanding and I would not be able to work from home without the office support from CRT, the case management system and access to online research libraries which they provide.   

When at home I enjoy spending time with my family, and entertaining friends with home cooked food and good wine.
