Tanith is a paralegal and court clerk. She joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in May 2017 and plans to qualify as a solicitor.
After completing her law degree at the University of Sussex in 2014, Tanith obtained her postgraduate diploma in legal practice. She has substantial legal experience, having previously worked in the litigation department of a City firm, as well as a paralegal in Oxfordshire.
Tanith currently assists Ipek Tugcu and Kate O’Brien with a broad range of issues. She has been commended for her approachable and flexible manner and prides herself on ensuring clients are provided with clear advice and support throughout their claim. Tanith has assisted in cases for both children and adults who have suffered medical negligence. She has particular knowledge in brain injury cases, but is also familiar in helping those who have suffered orthopaedic, surgical and oncological injuries.
Tanith also acts as a court clerk and regularly represents the firm at the High Court of Justice and County Courts in London. She has significant experience in undertaking advocacy in front of Judges, pleading applications on behalf of our clients and obtaining approval of consent, settlement and anonymity orders.
Tanith is passionate about helping others through volunteering. She has advised members of the public on legal and social issues at the Citizens’ Advice Bureau and acted as a carer for a lady suffering from multiple sclerosis. These opportunities have given Tanith a deeper understanding of the day to day difficulties often experienced by those with long-term injuries. As such, she is particularly interested in arranging rehabilitation for clients who have suffered significant and complex injuries.
Tanith is a keen supporter of the Child Brain Injury Trust, Headway and The Encephalitis Society – having fundraised for each charity.
