Alison joined HWB in March 2014, having previously worked as a partner with HWB's senior partner Chris Howse at Richards Butler in Hong Kong. She specialized in professional negligence and commercial litigation and has extensive experience in dispute resolution and commercial and professional negligence litigation. Alison returned to England in 1998 and was appointed as a Tribunal Judge with her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service specializing in Social Security law (including human rights and EC law, tax credits and benefit fraud). She was also appointed as a legally qualified chairperson for the Residential Property Tribunal in Wales, hearing appeals in respect of service charge disputes, enfranchisement valuations, determinations of fair and market rents, HMO licensing, rent repayment orders, park homes and local authority gypsy and traveller licensing issues and Right to Manage disputes. She continues to sit in both jurisdictions, returning to the UK for short periods to do so.

Alison continues to advise in respect of commercial litigation matters but also provides professional indemnity advice and assistance to doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals in HWB's medico legal practice.
