ProfileNatasha became a tenant in October 2014 after completing her 12 month civil pupillage in Chambers. After a very valuable experience of covering maternity leave as a Senior Lawyer at the Environment Agency, Natasha returned to full-time practice at the end of July 2016. Natasha has a wide range of experience in relation to general civil disputes having conducted a number of small claims trials, fast track, insolvency hearings, and other contested applications. She regularly conducts credit hire matters on behalf of Defendant insurers and has advised in a range of disputes; such as sale of goods, data protection, personal injury, professional negligence and nuisance/negligence.
Natasha has a keen interest in planning law and developing her practice in this area. During pupillage, she attended a number of planning inquiries and undertook work for other members of the Planning team. As a tenant, Natasha is regularly instructed to advise upon the merits of planning appeals and enforcement matters.
Natasha was a junior (led by Gavin Collett) in the recent high profile statutory challenge by Sustainable Totnes Action Group (representative claimant J Williams) concerning the controversial traffic regulation order made by Devon County Council in Totnes.
Natasha’s broad civil advocacy experience is complemented by appearances in the Criminal courts in trials for the CPS, Probation breaches and defence work, in order to hone her advocacy skills. She is developing her regulatory practice, particularly in respect of licensing matters.
Natasha taught on the Criminal Law module at Exeter University and is currently involved in research with Professor Phil Rumney (University of the West of England) investigating stigma in relation to sexual offences.
