Hayley joined Kitsons in October 2018 following maternity leave after the birth of her son. Hayley is based in the Torquay office working with James Cross and Rhoda Honey in the litigation department.
Hayley qualified as a Solicitor in September 2011 and has a wide range of experience in dealing with disputes including consumer contracts, building disputes, boundary disputes, TOLATA, trespass and nuisance. Hayley also has dealt with various Landlord and Tenant matters for residential properties, including section 8 and 21 notices and proceedings.
In a previous role Hayley acted for insurers at a panel firm dealing with claims funded by Before the Event Legal Expenses Insurance and so she has a unique understanding of how such policies operate and the way in which insurers authorise cover.
Hayley is friendly and approachable, and she understands that costs are at the forefront of her client’s minds. As a result, she takes a pragmatic approach to disputes and is an advocate for ADR. That said, she is a tenacious litigator and will do all she can to ensure the best result is achieved for her clients.
Outside of work Hayley enjoys swimming, travelling and reading, and spending time with her family.
