Lauren is an experienced advocate specialising in clinical negligence and personal injury. She is alert to the responsive and delicate client care required in these areas.

Lauren represents both claimants and defendants. Her practice includes claims involving delays in and missed diagnosis, surgical error, dental negligence, failings by paramedics, deaths resulting arising from the use of bed rails and hospital acquired bed sores. She is regularly instructed in high value claims involving complex schedules.

Lauren deals with claims from inception through to and including trial dealing with inquests, Letters of Claim and Response, pleadings, schedules, advice, conference, CCMCs, PTRs and applications.
