Danielle qualified as a Barrister in 2011, joining ISOLAS litigation team. Following a couple of years at work with one of the leading international players of the local motor trade, Danielle decided to pursue a legal career by taking on an ILEX (Institute of Legal Executives) course, following a year of which she took up full-time education in the UK, where she completed the Bar Vocational Course at the Cardiff School of Law.
Danielle’s primary focus remains in firm’s growing Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence practice, where she has had significant success, acting mainly for Defendants but also for Claimants and whose clients have varied between insurers and claim handers to children and protected parties. Danielle has dealt with a variety of cases ranging from injuries arising from misdiagnosis and negligent treatment of injuries and illnesses to injuries at work and occupier’s liability claims generally, to work related-stress claims, road traffic accidents and cases involving catastrophic injuries.
During her time at ISOLAS she has extended her litigation expertise to the field of employment, criminal and civil litigation generally, regularly appearing before the Magistrates, Supreme Court and the Employment Tribunal. In recent years, she has been involved in company/commercial litigation with a particular focus on insolvency.
Danielle also regularly advises some of Gibraltar's leading banks on litigation matters, legal and regulatory developments and assisting in formulating strategy and policy designed to envelop all relevant changes. Most recently, she has been involved in advising her banking clients in respect of new requirements imposed on them by the Payment Services Directive, Payment Accounts Directive and the recently implemented General Data Protection Regulations.”
