Practice Overview

Catherine practises in all areas of employment law and personal injury law.

She is on the Attorney-General’s Regional A Panel of Junior Counsel and she is regularly instructed to act on behalf of government departments and agencies in cases concerning her areas of expertise.

Catherine has a well-earned reputation for her organisation, her teamwork and her ability to merge sensitivity with strength when instructed.

The fact that Catherine’s practice encompasses both employment and personal injury means that she is well placed to advise in cases which require consideration of both areas of law. This includes claims in the County and High Courts involving allegations that the employer has failed to protect the Claimant from suffering psychiatric injury due to stress at work, claims under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, and Employment Tribunal discrimination claims which involve allegations of personal injury and claims for substantial compensation.
