Work Department

Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence

Position

Teresa is a personal injury and clinical negligence specialist with over 20 years’ experience. Much of her work is of a complex nature and / or of substantial value and, as a senior junior, she is extremely competent in undertaking such cases without the assistance of Leading Counsel. She is, however, often led when the complexity and / or value demands such input.

Teresa acts for both Claimants and Defendants and particularly enjoys tackling difficult issues. She has a relaxed and approachable style, which lends itself to working as a team with her instructing solicitor and experts.

Teresa is involved in claims from the early stages, providing initial advice on liability and quantum, attending interlocutory hearings and drafting pleadings, as well as taking cases through to joint settlement meetings and trial.

Teresa is highly valued for her robustness, attention to detail, thorough preparation and straightforward yet sensitive manner with clients. She has strived to retain and maintain a court-based practice, which means that she has a particular skill of handling lay and expert witnesses, both in conference and at trial.

Teresa has a specialist knowledge of procedural issues (such as breaches, admissions and limitation) and costs, which has proved invaluable during long running and complex litigation.
