Rosalind Young

  • Called in 2017

Rosalind joined Chambers in October 2018 upon successfully completing her pupillage.  She is happy to consider instructions in all areas of Chambers’ expertise.

Rosalind appears in court on a daily basis representing clients in small claim hearings, fast track trials, applications, stage 3 hearings and infant approval hearings.

Rosalind also has a busy paperwork practice and is instructed to provide advice on liability, evidence and quantum, and to draft statements of case, including schedules and counter-schedules.

Personal Injury

Rosalind enjoys a busy personal injury practice which encompasses a full spectrum of personal injury work. She is instructed in claims arising out of road traffic accidents, occupiers’ liability, public liability, product liability, employers’ liability and the Highways Act.

As well as appearing in court and in conferences on these matters on a daily basis, she also provides written advice on liability, quantum, tactics and prospects of success.

She is particularly keen to gain further experience in dealing with allegations of fraud or fundamental dishonesty.

She is happy to consider instructions on a CFA basis.

Insurance

Rosalind has had experience of representing both individuals and insurers in disputes arising out of RTA insurers’ liability, exemptions to liability, Article 75 issues, and the role of the Motor Insurance Bureau.

She has also appeared for insurers in property damage claims, with a particular focus on challenges to foreseeability and the principles of strict liability under Rylands v Fletcher.

Clinical Negligence

Rosalind maintains an interest in cases arising out of clinical negligence. Under the supervision of Andrew Wille, Rosalind drafted statements of case for a number of clinical negligence claims and advised on causation and quantum.

During her pupillage she also attended a number of conferences and joint settlement meetings arising from clinical negligence claims.

It is an area of practice that she is interested in developing.

Credit Hire

Rosalind is regularly instructed by both Claimants and Defendants in credit hire cases.

She is familiar with all arguments commonly raised in these cases including enforceability, need, period, intervention and rates.

General Common Law

Rosalind is willing to consider instructions in all areas of Chambers’ expertise and beyond.
She was recently instructed in a case relating to a boundary dispute which involved the principles of prescription and the law on easements.

During pupillage she also gained insight into contentious probate cases. She is eager to develop further experience in this area.

Employment

During pupillage Rosalind worked on wrongful / unfair dismissal and discrimination cases with various members of Chambers.

She has attended the Employment Tribunal on numerous occasions and welcomes the opportunity to develop a practice in this area.
