Position

I am delighted to have joined the niche practice of Barratts Solicitors in January 2015 to run the Court of Protection team

I specialise in Court of Protection work currently acting as professional deputy for over 30 clients all of whom have been awarded compensation as a result of a personal injury or clinical negligence claim. My role is to ensure the client’s best interests are served at all times and to provide support, guidance and advice to enable clients to make as many decisions as possible in relation to their finances and to manage those finances that the client is unable to manage. This includes obtaining independent professional investment advice.

No two clients are the same and I strive to provide a personal and professional service to all my clients.

Up until joining Barratts I was employed by Freeths Solicitors initially specialising in high value clinical negligence claims before joining their Court of Protection team in 2007.

I qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives "FILEX" in 1995

Barratts Solicitors fields a ‘highly respected’ and ‘first-rate’ team that ‘puts its clients at the heart of the very personal service it provides’ and ‘shows complete commitment to its cases’. The group excels in complex personal injury and clinical negligence litigation, with a strong focus in maximum severity cases, including fatal claims and cerebral palsy cases and matters with a cross-jurisdictional component. On the personal injury side, the department has a strong track record in matters involving brain and spinal injuries, often offering an early assessment of cases and experience in securing accommodation needs, therapies and other rehabilitation measures. On the clinical negligence side, the team is especially well-versed in cases involving damages sustained at birth, often obtaining multimillion-pound awards. Clinical negligence regarding cauda equina syndrome, spinal abscess, GP negligence and surgical mismanagement form a particularly large part of the caseload. The firm also fields a dedicated Court of Protection team led by legal executive Julie Greenwood. Personal injury expert Ed Myers and clinical negligence specialist Alison Brooks, ‘who cares passionately about her cases’, jointly lead the practice. The other key players are Julie Hardy, Debra Morris, David Tomlinson and the ‘particularly strongEmma Zukowska.
