Sarah Moore's Profile Picture
You have obviously changed my life for ever, I don't know how I can ever thank you and your firm enough for that. I am forever grateful. It has been such a pleasure dealing with you through this whole process. – David Tickell, thalidomide client
Outstandingly bright and phenomenally hardworking – Legal 500 2017

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. 

Sarah subsequently went on to represent a group of Iraqi interpreters who alleged losses as a consequence of their association with the British Forces from 2003. The claim was defended by the MoD, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Department for International Development. This claim has now been successfully resolved. 

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 in the product liability department, where she represents a group of individuals who allege that their congenital injuries were caused by their exposure to the drug Thalidomide.

In addition, she is working on behalf of over 150 claimants all of whom suffered injuries and consequential losses caused by their implantation with allegedly defective hip prostheses manufactured by Depuy Orthopaedics Ltd, a subsidiary of the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson. Both claims are ongoing.
