Holly joined Farrar’s Building in October 2023 after successfully completing her pupillage and gaining experience across Chambers’ core areas of practice including Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence and Regulatory Law.
Prior to pupillage, Holly worked at the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Hearings Coordinator. She gained experience of a wide range of hearings, including long-running, complex and high-profile substantive hearings, as well as hearings involving multiple registrants.
Holly appears in court regularly for both claimants and defendants. She accepts a range of instructions including small claims, fast track trials, and interim applications. She is developing a paperwork practice and is happy to accept instructions to draft pleadings, schedules and counter schedules as well as to advise on liability, quantum and tactics.
