“We're Leigh Day and we believe everyone has the right to justice and for their voice to be heard.”
Sarah studied at Cambridge University and qualified with City law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in 2006. Shortly after qualification Sarah joined Leigh Day's international complex claims team.
Sarah has worked on a number of international group actions since joining the firm including an environmental claim brought by 52 Colombian Farmers against the multi-national BP. This claim was successfully mediated in Bogota during June 2006.
From November 2006 until September 2009 Sarah was involved in a high profile group action against the oil trading company Trafigura. Sarah and the team represented almost 30,000 Ivorian nationals in what is reportedly the biggest foreign claimant group action in British legal history. This claim was successfully resolved with the defendants during September 2009.
Sarah is currently working on behalf of a group of Iraqi interpreters, the majority of whom remain in Iraq. The claimants allege that they have suffered losses as a consequence of their association with the British forces since 2003. The defendants in this action are the Ministry of Defence, the Foreign Commonwealth Office and the Department for International Development. This claim is ongoing.
