Beatrice is recognised as a leading junior specialising in the areas of police law, public law, mental health and capacity law, human rights and civil liberties, inquests and public inquiries.
Beatrice is appointed to the Attorney General’s B Panel of Counsel.

Beatrice acts for a range of clients including police forces, prison services, local authorities and NHS Trusts.  She is currently instructed in a number of civil actions, judicial reviews and human rights claims within her police and government practice. In her inquest practice she specialises, in particular, in cases with a mental health or capacity dimension (whether in the context of the police or community care services or in prison) and in police pursuit deaths.

Beatrice is happy to provide lectures and training on all aspects of her practice. She recently delivered training on human rights in the context of police cases, the issue of causation in inquests, policing and mental health, DOLs and capacity assessments, and was a panellist at the APL Autumn Conference 2017.

Beatrice is co-presenter of The Pupillage Podcast (iTunes/Spotify/Soundcloud), and is on the Middle Temple Survive & Thrive steering group.
