She regularly advises on jurisdiction and applicable law disputes and has appeared in recent high profile appeal cases on applicable law in both the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

Sarah regularly acts in the High Court for both claimants and defendants, Sarah balances a “commercial approach” with a “compassionate nature”.

She undertakes all kinds of personal injury and clinical negligence work, including asbestos-related illness claims.

Sarah has a public law and human rights practice, which focusses on discrimination, especially in the supply of goods and services and employment fields. She has appeared successfully in the employment tribunal, High Court and EAT.

Notably, she has appeared in the leading cases on religious rights discrimination, including representing the Christian hoteliers whose refusal to supply a same-sex couple with a double-bedded room led to the Supreme Court and currently, in Northern Ireland, where she acts on behalf of the bakery which refused to bake a cake with a message promoting same-sex marriage.
