Sarah Crowther QC
Sarah’s practice at the Bar involves frequent dealings with expert witnesses across a broad spectrum of expertise. She acts for claimants and defendants in clinical negligence cases, including spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and child birth accidents. Sarah specialises in cross-border claims where the law applicable is not English law and therefore works closely with foreign law experts on questions of liability, causation, assessment of loss and damage, contractual interpretation, limitation and apportionment. In catastrophic injury claims, Sarah has handled multi-expert quantum cases up to a value of £30m, involving accountancy, accommodation, physiotherapy, care and case management, court of protection, occupational therapy, educational psychology and investment advice. She has acted on behalf of clients living outside England and Wales and handled economic, actuarial and taxation expert evidence relevant to discount rate and complex cross-border financial management issues.
She also acts as an expert witness herself, giving evidence in respect of English law and conflicts of law issues for courts and tribunals abroad, including Scotland, Italy and Ireland.
Sarah is the vice-chair of the Personal Injuries Bar Association and a Head of Chambers at Outer Temple Chambers.
