Andrea is a solicitor within Capsticks’ Clinical Law department acting on behalf of NHS Resolution and a variety of NHS Trusts investigating and defending clinical negligence claims. Andrea manages a wide ranging caseload across many medical specialties including cardiology, general surgery, neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, orthopaedic surgery and psychiatry including secondary victim claims. Her practice includes high value and complex claims and she regularly represents clients at contested hearings, mediations, conferences and settlement meetings.
Prior to working at Capsticks, Andrea spent five years investigating and defending complex cross-insurer fraudulent personal injury claims. This involved early identification of strategic investigations required to obtain evidence of fraud which in turn would result in a prompt commercial decision to fight or settle a case. Andrea gained extensive litigation experience including organising and conducting group litigation and defended many fraudulent claims to trial and one to the Court of Appeal.
Andrea is also a tutor on the Capsticks Diploma.
