Hannah undertook pupillage at 18 St John Street under the supervision of Rehana Begum. She is now the newest family tenant following successful completion of pupillage.
Since commencing practice Hannah has gained experience in a wide variety of areas. She has represented parents, Local Authorities and children through their Guardian at all stages of public law proceedings. She has become accustomed to advising Local Authorities from the pre-proceedings stage through to the issuing of proceedings and to drafting thresholds and case summaries.
Hannah has also gained experience in private law proceedings and applications under the Family Law Act 1996. She has represented both the Applicant and Respondent in such cases, including those in which there are serious allegations against one of the parties.
Hannah is also keen to develop a practice in financial remedies and Court of Protection.
Prior to joining Chambers, Hannah worked at a magic circle law firm as a paralegal. She worked on a number of large commercial transactions, undertaking tasks such as due diligence and document review. In particular she became experienced in the drafting and reviewing of non-disclosure agreements and undertook a client secondment. Further to this, Hannah gained family law experience through her time spent outdoor clerking for a firm of Lancashire solicitors.
