Beatrice Dawson

Beatrice recently committed to practising exclusively in the field of family law due to her thriving practice and established client base. She undertakes all public and private law proceedings along with injunctive relief.

Despite her relatively junior level of call, the vast majority of her work relates to public law litigation where she is regularly instructed by a number of Local Authorities, as well as acting for parents, family members and children’s guardians. Beatrice has experience in the High Court representing both local authorities and private parties in care and private law proceedings. She regularly appears in the County Court and Family Proceedings Court.

Beatrice’s practice encompasses a wide range of applications involving children, including cases with allegations of serious sexual and physical abuse. She has been described by professional clients as having a sensitive yet firm manner and it has been said by both instructing solicitors and her peers that her preparation is impeccable and reflected in her advocacy during court proceedings.
