Michelle is primarily instructed by large composite insurers and Lloyds syndicates in complex liability and quantum cases involving complex orthopaedic and psychiatric injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputee claims and fatal accident claims with reserves ranging from £100,000 to in excess of £25m.
