Prior to working at Shoosmiths, Alice studied Law LLB at the University of Cardiff and worked as a Paralegal in the Healthcare Department of a leading Welsh law firm. She is currently continuing her studies in order to qualify as a lawyer within the Clinical Negligence department.

Alice has experience of all types of claims ranging from relatively straightforward cases against a single hospital trust, to more complex claims involving multiple defendants and catastrophic injury of the most severe nature. The types of cases Alice routinely assists with include neurological injury, the failure to diagnose and treat cancer, severe infection, amputation and joint replacement surgery. Alice also has experience in dealing with complex mental health claims and has gained significant experience in representing bereaved families at inquest.

Alice understands that one of the most important aspects of our work is to help clients rebuild their lives to reach their optimum level of independence and she has been instrumental in helping clients to access the rehabilitation they require.

Alice pays great attention to detail and communicates in a clear and empathetic manner to all clients who have readily expressed their gratitude for her kindness and assistance. She is generous with her time and works well with others.
