Clarissa is a solicitor in Thompsons’ national clinical negligence team based in the firm’s Bristol office.

She has many years of experience assisting those with serious and life-changing injuries arising from medical negligence and her experience includes cases involving brain injuries, spinal injuries and laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy claims.

She is currently part of the team working predominantly on cases involving complications from mesh surgery.

Having started her legal career in 2011 as a paralegal, before training and qualifying as a solicitor, Clarissa has spent most of her legal career assisting people who have suffered serious and catastrophic injuries due to clinical negligence.

Clarissa is always mindful that bringing a claim for compensation can seem daunting and her role is to provide support, guidance, clarity and reassurance to her clients. She works hard to put her clients at ease and to understand each individual’s specific needs and goals.

Away from work, Clarissa’s young daughter keeps her very busy exploring the countryside with their dog, Lulu.
