Meet our expert lawyers who are dedicated in making life better for our clients.
I specialise in handling professional negligence claims on behalf of both businesses and individuals. I have particular and extensive experience with claims against chartered surveyors and solicitors, and have successfully resolved a large number of such claims during the many years that I have specialised in this area.
I also advise on a variety of commercial disputes, including contractual disputes, insurance coverage disputes, disputes involving independent schools and defamation claims. I also sit as a Deputy District Judge on the South Eastern Circuit.
I studied Law at Queens’ College Cambridge, spent my training contract at Clifford Chance in the City, and then worked for five years at a West End media law firm in London, before moving to Moore Barlow (then Barlow Robbins) in 2006.
Outside work, I enjoy writing and illustrating children’s stories, swimming and sewing.

Esther Millard handled a dispute for me, and given how stressful the experience can be, she handled the whole process extremely professionally, keeping me well informed of all developments. She was very confident in terms of discussing strategy and realistic in terms of potential outcomes, which is exactly what you want when you are spending considerable sums of money to try to win a dispute; the circumstances of which can be open to different legal interpretations. Esther managed my expectations extremely well.
