Brief overview of your career

Prior to that, I worked as a salaried Partner in an established private practice for some time.

What you offer your clients
I have a wealth of litigious experience accumulated over 20 years as a litigation solicitor. I can be patient and proactive but relish taking a robust position when needed. I am able to speedily absorb a complicated and detailed set of facts, unpick these and get to the heart of the legal issues. I have a wealth of experienced professional allies that I have worked with over the years and this enables me to offer a top rate service.
Why you love what you do
I love to see a case through and build good client relationships, culminating in achieving an outcome that is tailored to an individual client. I appreciate that some clients will want their day in court but sometimes this is the last thing that a client wants. I love to be able to match those wishes and use my experience and expertise to help a client at a time when they need it.
I am a great music lover and enjoy attending concerts, festivals and sing in a choir from time to time. I also enjoy dancing with friends as a way to keep fit and I am an avid reader, delighting in a couple of book clubs. London is a joy to live in and I enjoy visiting art galleries and exhibitions.

- “I have worked with Charlotte for the last 11 years with great pleasure. I am always happy to recommend Charlotte and her firm to claimants who are looking for sympathetic, professional and practical advice. Charlotte and her team work to achieve the best outcome for the client, in the least stressful manner possible.”
