Hannah joined the London based commercial team in October 2019 as a paralegal, assisting the fee earners on high-value, complex litigation claims. This includes assisting in multi-million pound professional negligence claims, acting for a group of franchisees in a High Court fraud claim against a multi-national franchisor and assisting in the representation of Chinese shareholders in a High Court fraud claim against a large company, involving members of the British Royal Family.

Hannah completed her law degree at the University of East Anglia in 2017. Whilst studying, Hannah was involved in a number of pro-bono projects, including Street Law; a programme focused on improving children’s legal awareness in secondary schools and The Innocence Project; a charity investigating allegations of miscarriages of justice. As part of her degree, she undertook a year abroad studying American law at Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida. Here, she was an active member of the Elder Law Society and the Jewish Law Student Society where she served as Social Chair.

After finishing her degree, Hannah undertook a Masters in Medical Law and Ethics at Kings College London and completed her dissertation on pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. Following this, she worked in a policy-based role at the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, before joining Eldwick Law.

In her spare time, Hannah enjoys fitness, sports, theatre and she is a volunteer for Leducate; a charity that promotes legal education amongst secondary-schools.
