Position

Beatrice has experience in the High Court representing both local authorities and private parties in care and private law proceedings. She regularly appears in the County Court and Family Proceedings Court. Beatrice’s practice encompasses a wide range of applications involving children, including cases with allegations of serious sexual and physical abuse.
