Expertise and Key Strengths

With a proven track record in travel litigation, I deal with complex private international law cases involving issues concerning jurisdiction and applicable law, and act on behalf of people in group action claims as a result of accidents and injuries abroad. I’m also highly experienced in handling complex serious injury claims, in which my clients have suffered serious injury to the brain, neck or spine.

I pride myself in providing a personal and empathetic approach to everyone I act for, taking time to explain any complex issues in a client-focused manner.

My Career

I qualified as a solicitor with Donns in 2001, and spent my first 4 years assisting partners with serious injury cases. I moved to Leigh Day in 2003 and joined Pannone in 2005. Upon joining Pannone, I specialised in personal injury accident and illness claims that occur abroad. I became a partner at Pannone in 2009, and jointly headed up the travel litigation team from 2012. In 2014, Slater + Gordon acquired Pannone and I became the head of the Slater + Gordon travel litigation team, managing the team across both the Manchester and London offices. I joined Hudgell Solicitors in August 2017.

Proudest Professional Achievement

I acted for a child who was 3 years old at the time of the incident. He was involved in a road traffic accident in Spain and sustained significant spinal and urological injuries. The case involved complex issues concerning the applicable law but we successfully persuaded the English court that English Law should apply to determine the amount of compensation that should be awarded.

This made a very significant difference to the increased amount of rehabilitation, care and case management that could be provided to the child. The case became particularly litigious as a result of the Spanish insurer’s approach to the case, and we successfully made several court applications for sizeable interim payments to facilitate ongoing private medical treatment, care and daily expenses.

The case ultimately settled, to the great satisfaction of the child and the family, for a multi-million pound figure following a joint settlement meeting and careful consideration of the suitability of periodical payments.
