Before joining Stone Rowe Brewer, I worked for one of the UK’s largest personal injury firms, advising other solicitors in all aspects of costs management and litigation. I am passionate that a disciplined and thorough approach to costs, based on actual experience is hugely beneficial to a successful legal practice.
I am very fortunate to be working for such a dedicated team where client care is at the heart of everything we do and I look forward to growing a specialist in-house costs environment and furthering my litigation career at the firm. In July 2018, I was appointed as the Costs and Funding Group Secretary by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
I am also an accredited mediator (Civil and Commercial) and in that capacity, I am able accept instructions to attempt to settle disputes at a confidential meeting which has the benefit of saving time, emotional distress, reputations and often, significant costs. Mediation is an emerging and extremely important alternative dispute resolution method which should be considered at the earliest stage possible in any civil or commercial dispute. If you have a family dispute and require the help of a mediator, my colleague, Lisa Broddle, will be happy to assist you.
