Francesca Beach

In brief

I am a Solicitor at Fairweathers having qualified in January 2018.

I support the Grade A fee earners in their work on files dealing with all aspects of Medical Negligence cases.

I also have an administrative role within the department particularly in relation to screening new clients.

In the past

I graduated from the University of Kent in 2013 with a 2:1 in Law. During my time at University I was heavily involved in the Kent Law Clinic and worked on my own cases under the supervision of a qualified solicitor. I also played premiership level Netball for my University, this meant attending 5 training sessions a week.

I have since achieved a distinction on the LPC at the University of Law, Bristol. Whilst at Bristol I undertook some pro bono work for the Nailsea Disability Initiative and founded the University of Law, Bristol Running Club.

During my studies I held work experience placements at Foot Anstey and Co-operative Legal Services.

I began working for Fairweathers in early 2014 leaving in December 2015 to undergo my recognised period of training at Berry & Lamberts LLP.

I then returned to Fairweathers in May 2017 to complete my recognised period of training.

In my spare time

I am an avid runner, netball player and swimmer and I have the sporting injuries to prove it! I am also very competitive and I turn even the simplest task, such as washing up with my boyfriend, into a race.

I love travelling back to Cornwall to see my friends, family and pets, and I’ll always try to squeeze in surf at Perranporth Beach if I have the time!
