About Louise

  • Biography

    Louise specialises in complex and large loss litigation. She has over 20 years’ defence litigation experience advising clients across a range of sectors including casualty, motor and disease. Her key clients include MS Amlin and Ecclesiastical.

    Louise combines her exceptional technical and strategic knowledge with a personable and pragmatic approach ensuring the best possible outcome for her clients.

    Relevant experience includes advising:

    • In a sports injury paraplegic case, in which liability was denied. Louise secured settlement to include costs for a fraction of the true value of the case with significant indemnity spend savings achieved as a result.
    • On policy cover, where she saved her client over £4m following a full arbitration hearing. The outcome vindicated early that there was no cover under the policy following the policyholder’s breach.
    • In a traumatic head injury case; working collaboratively with the claimant’s solicitor to ensure the claimant received all required support and treatment to include private surgery to speed recovery; ultimately securing early settlement with resultant cost savings.

    Louise is ranked by Chambers as a recognised practitioner for Personal Injury: Mainly Defendant work in Northern Ireland and Legal 500 2020 states Louise “has a very personable approach and impresses with her exceptional industry knowledge”
