Insurance & Reinsurance
Meredith gained experience across a range of insurance and re-insurance matters, including a case involving the question of when the Insured’s behaviour was so reckless as to provide a sufficient ground to avoid cover, during her pupillage.
Before starting her pupillage Meredith gained experience of insurance and re-insurance disputes whilst working as a Judicial Assistant to Lord Justice Simon in the Court of Appeal, notably Spire Healthcare Ltd v Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Plc  EWCA Civ 317.
Meredith has experience of handling both cases and hearings in which fundamental dishonesty is in issue in a wide range of situations. This includes advising on the best way to bring fundamental dishonesty into issue in cases where dishonesty markers are only identified shortly before trial, for example, as a result of the disclosure of medical records or witness evidence. Meredith also has experience of drafting Part 35 questions in cases where fundamental dishonesty is in issue, handling applications by Claimants to adduce additional evidence shortly before trial to rebut allegations of fundamental dishonesty, and handling cases involving injuries which cannot be objectively proven (such as whiplash and tinnitus).
