Jo is regularly instructed by both claimants and defendants in a broad range of clinical negligence matters. She has a busy caseload, including working on very high value matters as a junior to multiple silks in chambers, and acting in complex matters in her own right. Jo has significant experience in advising in writing and conference, drafting pleadings, and appearing in court. Jo has acted for claimants in numerous virtual RTMs and mediations during the Covid pandemic, adapting quickly to remote and paper-light working. She has a particular interest in the law of limitation, and in fundamental dishonesty as it applies to costs in medical negligence/PI cases.
The Legal 500 recommend Jo Moore for clinical negligence in the 2022 Guide with clients saying “She is fearsomely intelligent, always meticulously prepared and able to focus in on the crucial parts of a claim with unerring accuracy.”
