Areas of Expertise
Moving from a mixed practice in her early years at the Bar, Liz now thoroughly enjoys a predominantly civil practice.
Her personal injury work has been recommended in the Regional Bar section of ‘The Legal 500’ since 2005.
She frequently undertakes work for claimants from a variety of sources and regularly undertakes defendant work, in particular from local authorities. Her particular interest lies in employers’ liability. She is a keen member of PIBA, APIL and the Welsh Personal Injury Lawyers Association.
A growing employment practice finds her advising and representing both claimants and respondents in contentious and non-contentious matters, including contract preparation.
More esoteric instructions have taken her through land disputes involving, variously, common land, trespass by gypsy travellers and claims of adverse possession. She has a particular affinity to cases with a public aspect, helped by the study of administrative law as part of her MA.
Liz also undertakes landlord and tenant cases (both commercial and residential), focusing in particular on cases of anti-social behaviour. An interest in consumer law has led to numerous cases of travel litigation.
She finds giving seminars, in particular in personal injury law, strangely enjoyable. Elizabeth is a CEDR trained and CEDR accredited mediator, accepting instructions to conduct mediations in all aspects of civil law.
