Clinical Negligence

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 in case management hearings and applications. She has a particular interest in the law of limitation, and in fundamental dishonesty as it applies to costs in medical negligence/PI cases.
