Megan is regularly instructed to appear at court in small claim and fast track matters and also has a paperwork practice. She has a particular interest in clinical negligence, industrial disease and sexual abuse work as well as chambers’ general personal injury work.
Megan joined chambers upon successful completion of her pupillage in October 2020. During pupillage she gained particular experience in asbestos claims (both benign and malignant asbestos diseases), clinical negligence and general personal injury work.
Megan is in court most days for small claim and fast track hearings, Stage 3 hearings, interim applications and dispute resolution hearings. She is most frequently instructed in credit hire, personal injury and RTA matters.
Megan is comfortable with both remote and in person hearings and has a largely paperless practice.
Alongside her court work, Megan regularly takes instructions for written work including drafting pleadings, written submissions for paper hearings and advices. She is happy to accept instructions on a CFA basis where appropriate.
Megan has been praised by instructing solicitors for her communicative and thorough approach.
Prior to pupillage Megan worked at two London law firms as a paralegal, firstly focusing on domestic abuse (giving rise to her interest and understanding of the sensitive issues that arise in sexual abuse cases), and secondly in a clinical negligence department. She therefore has a clear understanding of claim management and the need to work closely with solicitors to achieve the best results in individual cases.
Megan also regularly contributes to chambers’ various blogs. Her clinical negligence articles have been republished in AvMA’s newsletters and on LexisPSL.
