Biography

I was admitted as a solicitor in Australia in 2000 and in England and Wales in 2006.

I joined the Irwin Mitchell International Travel Litigation Group in 2004.

I specialise in personal injury claims involving a foreign element. This might include representing individuals who have sustained injuries abroad, on board planes or ships, or foreign nationals involved in accidents in the UK. I act on behalf of clients pursuing claims in this country as well as a vast array of other jurisdictions around the world. I have experience in acting for both claimants and defendants.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

As a child I experienced firsthand the litigation process when a family member suffered an unfortunate accident. This sparked an interest in the law and fostered a desire to help others in similar situations.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I get a real buzz out of achieving good results for clients. It is particularly satisfying when you can make a real difference to someone's life.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Working with a good team of people and resources.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Sport dominates my life away from the office. Rugby, cricket, football, Australian Rules, you name it, I'll follow it! I like to participate as well and keep very busy playing touch rugby and netball.

I also enjoy socialising and travelling.

    Sporting Achievement For Specialist Lawyer As She Reaches 100 Caps In Touch Rugby

    “I’m always very busy, as I do work a lot, but touch rugby is what I enjoy doing in my spare time. I find it hugely beneficial for me – physically and mentally - as it is very different to my day job, which is mostly spent behind a desk. It gives me an outlet to burn off all the worries and thoughts of the day.”

    Tunisian Terror Attack Victims Commence Formal Legal Proceedings Against Tour Operator TUI

    “On behalf of our clients who lost members of their families and those who suffered injuries in this terrible incident, we have now served formal civil proceedings on TUI claiming damages. The damages claimed will help compensate them for their suffering, their financial losses and help survivors meet the costs of specialist treatments and therapies to aid their recoveries. “The level of terrorist threat in Tunisia had been escalating for some time prior to June 2015. This included a failed suicide bomb attempt outside a beach Hotel in Sousse in October 2013 and an attack at the Bardo museum in Tunis in March 2015 in which 22 people were killed. “Despite this TUI, the Tour Operator who organised the holidays and was responsible for our clients’ safety, did not audit the adequacy of security at the hotel or take appropriate precautions to keep our clients safe from an attack. Nor did they inform our clients of the level of threat of terrorism which many of the holidaymakers say would have changed their mind about holidaying in Tunisia at the time.”

    Tunisia Terror Attack Coroner Concerned Tour Operators Not Made Safety Changes

    “These were both areas that were flagged during the Inquest in respect of two of the UK’s largest travel companies, Thomson and First Choice, which are both within the TUI group of companies. While we are very glad TUI has now apparently addressed these concerns, those changes are clearly too late for our clients who lost their loved ones in Sousse and for the many seriously injured survivors who we represent. “We, and our clients, now consider that that is of vital importance that these lessons are learned by all tour operators and that these changes are implemented where needed throughout the travel industry without any further delay.”
