Ellie enjoys a mixed civil practice and has experience in dealing with contractual disputes. She is frequently instructed in small claims hearings and application hearings, and is happy to assist in drafting or advising at any stage of the life of a claim.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Ellie worked as a paralegal in the Catastrophic Personal Injury team at DWF. She regularly assisted with drafting Defences, Draft Orders and letters of advice to insurer clients on complex and high value cases. As a result, she has a sound understanding of the principles in civil litigation.

During the Covid-19 lockdown, Ellie co-wrote articles on liability for independent school and university tuition fees during the lockdown period, which received a great deal of interest.
