Eloise is a personal injury barrister with a busy practice representing both Claimants and Defendants. She regularly appears at trials and interim application hearings, appearing in court most days, in addition to maintaining her paperwork practice.
Eloise has a particular interest in claims in which fundamental dishonesty is alleged, and has persuaded the court to make findings on a number of occasions. Her cross has been described by the judiciary as “detailed and strong forensic examination”. It has also led to a Claimant inviting a drop hands settlement mid-trial.
Prior to pupillage, Eloise gained significant experience within the employers’ and public liability team of a major Defendant firm, where she was known for her tenacious approach. She made numerous successful interim applications, leading to many strike outs and discontinuances. Eloise is adept at handling high value claims involving multi-disciplinary expert evidence and complex causation and quantum issues. She continues to appear and advise in multi-track matters at the Bar.
Eloise’s experience covers a range of employers’ and public liability matters, including Highways Act and holiday illness claims, in addition to claims arising out of road traffic accidents. She advises on all aspects of litigation, and welcomes instructions to draft pleadings and interim applications. Eloise is keen to expand her practice in the clinical negligence field, in both court and written work.
Outside of work, Eloise enjoys snowboarding and salsa.
Eloise is happy to accept instructions in the following clinical negligence specialisms:
- Delayed diagnosis
- Negligent nursing care
- Surgical negligence
- Dental negligence
- Cosmetic negligence
‘She is very focused on the important issues in a case and is both pragmatic and sensible.’

“Eloise is an extremely talented advocate with a wealth of knowledge, she has an eye for detail and commercial awareness and always approaches a case in a professional manner. Her achievements speak volumes about her ability.
I have previously instructed Eloise on a high value personal injury claim with a tight deadline, she proved how she will go ‘the extra mile’ for her clients by producing an extensive piece of advice which was clear, thorough and informative. Eloise works efficiently and diligently and is viewed as a very ‘safe pair of hands’.

“Eloise has covered a range of matters from hearings, conferences and applications on behalf of our clients. Conference calls with insured drivers were made easy by Eloise’s approachable and personable nature. Eloise has provided excellently drafted Court documents ranging from defences to skeleton arguments pre-trial. She has achieved excellent results at trial including obtaining a finding of fundamental dishonesty against a Claimant on more than one occasion. I would not hesitate to recommend Eloise for any work involving civil litigation.”
“I just wanted to pass on the client’s compliments - they were very impressed by your grip on the case and the representations you made on their behalf. They’ve said they would very much like you to represent them again…”
