2005, Inner Temple
Personal Injury Bar Association
LLB (Hons) - Graduate of Liverpool University
Elizabeth acts for both Claimants and Defendants in personal injury actions from small claim to multi track and has acted in matters in which the schedule was pleaded in excess of £2 million.
She is routinely instructed in all areas of civil litigation including road traffic accidents (credit hire, low velocity impacts and MIB claims), occupiers’ liability, employers’ liability, product liability and highway claims.
She has particular enthusiasm for a unique field of litigation involving the Animals Act 1971 and specifically imports her personal knowledge of all things equine into claims involving horses and riders.
Instructions can be accepted on a conditional fee agreement basis.
Elizabeth is willing to act at all stages of litigation from pre-action stage through to the final hearing and appeals. She has a very heavy paper practice including advising on liability and quantum, and drafting schedules of loss.
Elizabeth has an approachable and down to earth manner with both her professional and lay clients. She appreciates that litigation can be extremely stressful and will endeavour to put clients at ease. Elizabeth invites instruction at an early stage and appreciates involvement as a case progresses, favouring the teamwork approach to cases which developed prior to her career at the Bar when working for HM Revenue and Customs as an instructing paralegal. At that time Elizabeth had responsibility for a caseload valued in excess of £100 million and accordingly remembers the pressures associated with the same and the management of client expectations.
When she is not in court, drafting pleadings, or conducting conferences, Elizabeth can be found at the stables with her Dutch Warmblood horse, Carnsdale Captain Nemo.
