I am a Partner in our International Serious Injury Team, leading a team of French, Spanish, German, Portuguese and Italian-speaking international lawyers. We pursue claims around the world arising out of negligence abroad, at sea and in the air.
I am a Spanish-speaker and I act in high-value, cross-jurisdictional cases across the globe. Most of these cases involve multiple fatalities, serious brain or spinal injuries, or complex international medical negligence issues.
I also have significant experience in:
- Oil and gas-related actions
- International fatalities
- Coroners' proceedings involving counter-intelligence and issues of a sensitive governmental nature
- Hybrid personal injury and insolvency claims.
I’ve been involved in several cases which have set legal precedent, and have also represented clients at the Court of Appeal and the UK Supreme Court.
What inspired you to get into law?
I’ve wanted to be a lawyer for as long as I can remember. I initially qualified as a Barrister in 2006, but cross-qualified to become a Solicitor shortly afterwards.
As a Spanish-speaker and because of my desire to want to make a real difference to people’s lives, international law with a serious injury angle seemed to be the perfect fit for me!
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Helping clients to get the best possible settlement and improve their quality of life.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
The huge wealth of specialist knowledge held across our firm, together with my colleagues’ genuine desire to want to do the very best for their clients.
What do you do away from the office?
I live for international travel. Spending time with my daughters and introducing them to what the world has to offer makes me feel incredibly happy.

They were always on top of every little detail of the process and make sure that I was following along with them.
