Mollie is an Associate in the Child Brain Injury Team. She is passionate about representing children who have suffered brain injuries and their families to secure the right provisions for their needs.
She joined the firm in October 2018 after completing her training contract. During her training, she acted only for claimants, many of whom were trade union members, where she gained experience in employment law, personal injury and clinical negligence. She worked on a wide variety of matters including road traffic accidents and industrial disease claims and has successfully presented applications before District Judges in the County Court. Mollie spent the final year of her training contract working with the head of the clinical negligence department, where she gained experience on a variety of birth injury claims, claims involving delayed diagnoses and fatal claims.
Mollie worked with Caroline Klage, Partner to achieve one of the largest ever clinical negligence settlements for a long-running birth injury claim for a capital equivalent of just under £33.2 million.
Mollie also has experience in assisting a professional financial deputy in the management of compensation and the purchase of properties on behalf of Claimants who had suffered brain injuries.
Mollie is driven by seeing the difference that compensation can make to the quality of life of a child after they have suffered injury, as well as the effect on their family, by enabling access to therapies, rehabilitation and ongoing support.
In addition to her experience in cases involving negligence, Mollie is an IPSEA-qualified special educational needs advisor and assists in representing children and young people with Special Educational Needs arising from or connected to brain injuries.
Mollie studied Law at the University of Sussex and went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at BPP University in London.
