Isabel is a solicitor in Saunders Law’s Human Rights department, sitting within the Public Inquiries team.
Since joining Saunders Law Isabel has been working predominantly on the Grenfell Tower Inquiry and associated civil claims, representing a number of survivors and bereaved families. Alongside this she has been developing a mixed practice caseload encompassing inquests and civil actions against the police and public bodies representing victims and bereaved families.
Prior to joining Saunders Law, Isabel completed her legal training at an international law firm. Alongside her client work, she regularly volunteered at free legal advice clinics around London and worked on a variety of pro-bono projects with organisations such as the National Centre for Domestic Violence, the Whitechapel Mission and the Prisoners Advice Service.
Realising that her true passions and drive lay in the rights-based pro-bono work she was doing, Isabel decided to leave the corporate legal world in order to pursue a career dedicated to protecting and promoting human rights and equal access to justice for all and, in particular, the most vulnerable and disenfranchised members of our society. She is committed to supporting and giving a voice to all victims of injustice and to working with them, and on their behalf, to hold state and corporate bodies to account where their actions and/or inactions have contributed to failings and injustice.
Isabel holds a BA Combined Honours in Arts from Durham University. She subsequently completed her legal qualifications in London at BPP University Law School.
