Year of Call:
Imogen specialises in employment, public, personal injury and clinical negligence disputes.
Imogen joined Chambers after her successful completion of the Outer Temple Chambers Extended Pupillage Scheme in association with FRU (Free Representation Unit) in May 2017. She remains dedicated to pro bono work and has taken EAT cases through Advocate and FRU, and is a member of the ELAAS scheme.
Before being called to the bar, Imogen read law at the University of Nottingham and later studied the BPTC at Nottingham Law School.
Imogen was instructed as junior counsel on the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA). She was a member of the Nottinghamshire counsel team with Olinga Tahzib, Paul Livingston, and lead by Patrick Sadd, taking part in the three-week hearing in October 2018. She also assisted the Chair and Panel of the Inquiry with the content of the report.
She was subsequently instructed as a member of the counsel team for the Investigation into institutional responses to allegations of Child Sexual Abuse involving the late Lord Janner of Braunstone Q.C, the three-week hearings taking place in October 2020. This work afforded her an insight into the important work of public inquiries and the challenges of ensuring that core participants with conflicting interests are all accommodated. It also required the assimilation of vast quantities of documents and careful consideration of issues of confidentiality and disclosure.
Additionally, Imogen assisted Samantha Presland in the Court of Appeal hearing of RW v Chelsea & Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust  EWCA Civ 1067 against the decision of the Court of Protection to maintain a transparency order and to remove clinically assisted nutrition and hydration (CANH).
