Harriet is currently instructed by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government as a junior junior in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry.
Prior to joining Chambers, Harriet worked as the stagiaire to Judge Christopher Vajda at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.
Whilst undertaking her legal studies, Harriet gained extensive mooting experience and was appointed the Mistress of Moots for the Cambridge University Law Society. Notably, she won the Quadrant Chambers Cambridge University mooting competition, placing 1st out of 64 students after winning 5 rounds of mooting.
Harriet is a contributor to the Personal Injury Brief Update newsletter, published monthly.
