My role

I am a Senior Associate specialising in complex and high value clinical negligence and personal injury claims. I support clients through their compensation claims, listening to them, advising them and helping them to understand the litigation process. As a team, our focus is on offering exceptional client care to our clients. I also have responsibility for supervising junior team members and, within the firm, appraising trainee solicitors to ensure ongoing high quality of training. I regularly present at internal and external seminars on topics linked in with my specialist line of work.

My experience

I have over 15 years’ experience, managing complex clinical negligence and catastrophic injury claims, which are often of significant value. I have been an accredited member of the Law Society’s panel of Personal Injury Lawyers since May 2001. 

Testimonials to the quality of my work include: dextrous and good with clients with strong case management skills (Chambers 2014); a real fighter who gets some great results (Chambers 2015); sympathetic with good judgment (Chambers 2016).

Clients say: "Charlotte was very helpful, empathetic and honest throughout the case. She did not make promises re the settlement but achieved much more than I ever expected" and "We are utterly indebted to Charlotte’s sensitivity, empathy, knowledge, resilience and flight; throughout she has been patient and professional."
