Employment: Jen has particular expertise in the Higher Education sector acting for both Higher Education providers, such as Oxford University, and on behalf of unions and individual academics. She is currently junior counsel on a large group claim in a gig-economy case. She regularly acts as sole counsel in complex multi-day discrimination and whistleblowing litigation. She is highly sought after by both claimant and respondent solicitors for her clear-sighted, strategic approach to litigation. Jen also regularly undertakes complex internal investigations into employee disputes and disciplinary matters, including in the most sensitive cases of serious sexual harassment.

Clinical negligence: Jen has acted for claimants with complex claims where both liability and quantum is in issue. She has an active practice as sole counsel with recent multi-track trial experience and is frequently junior to leaders in the field of high value clinical negligence litigation, in particular, wrongful birth cases.

Discrimination: Jen represents clients in discrimination in goods and services and education litigation. She is currently acting for Emily Bendell in her widely-reported claim against the Garrick Club.
