Qualifying as a solicitor in 1999, Carrie joined Keoghs as a partner in 2010 and, for the past 14 years, has worked for composite insurers and large insureds.

She has dealt with a wide variety of disease claims (from £1,000 to £2.5 million) encompassing the full long and short-tail range as well as more unusual claims such as chemical poisoning, hypoxic brain injury and a multi-party HAVS claim for a glass manufacturer.
