Unusually for an advocate, Michelle has experience of working in private practice as a fee earner which means she has a great deal of empathy with the pressures and stress that her clients experience on a daily basis. Michelle therefore acknowledges that her clients need to be able to get on with their job and strives to take away the strain of dealing with costs.

With experience of personal injury and group actions (both domestic and international) Michelle’s litigation experience gives her an edge in knowing the real demands of day to day to case management. This has helped Michelle become one of the early experts in costs management since its wider implementation in April 2013.

Michelle has been heavily involved in costs management and attendance at CCMCs since the introduction of the new costs management rules in April 2013. Michelle has helped a number of clients through advising on and drafting budgets, negotiating with all parties to the litigation and addressing the Judge at the CCMC. Michelle keenly follows all procedural and case law developments in budgeting meaning her clients are always advised based on the most up to date knowledge.

As part of a new breed of costs experts, Michelle has been praised for her refreshing approach, fully embracing modern procedural guidance and adopting a succinct communication style increasingly being endorsed by Costs Judges.
