Scarlett joined Chambers in October 2017 after successfully completing her pupillage under the supervision of Marcus Grant, Nicholas Moss and Alexander Glassbrook.
She has been practicing since April 2017 and has appeared in both the County Court and High Court. She has extensive experience in small claims hearings, fast track trials, and interim hearings, with a particular focus on personal injury, credit hire, insurance fraud, and costs.
Scarlett is currently instructed as a junior junior counsel to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry.
She is also developing a paper based practice, having undertaken various pleadings, including some with difficult legal issues surrounding intestacy, nuisance and the validity of claims.
Prior to commencing her pupillage in October 2016, Scarlett worked as a paralegal for Macfarlanes LLP, as part of a team analysing claims brought against a major bank for the mis-selling of interest rate hedging products. In this role she would write opinions on the validity of the claims and calculate any quantum due. She would then present her opinions at meetings with litigation partners.
Whilst undertaking the BPTC in 2015-2016, Scarlett was a FRU Employment Law volunteer. She gained insightful experience of client handling, procedural and case management matters, drafting documents, and assessing risk and settlement options. One particular case settled for a substantial sum (over half the amount initially claimed) despite the Defendant having previously denied any wrongdoing.
Prior to commencing practice, Scarlett had extensive mooting experience, with notable successes including winning the Human Rights Lawyers Association Judicial Review Competition (judged by Lady Justice Arden, Sir Louis Blom-Cooper QC, and Professor Maurice Sunkin) and the London Universities Mooting Shield Competition.
