Catherine Stock Barrister

My name is Catherine Stock and I am a public access barrister. That means that you can come to me directly rather than having to approach a solicitor first. There are many benefits of approaching a public access barrister which are outlined in more detail in the public access tab.

I have been a barrister since 2007 and specialise in a few select areas. I have a particular interest in healthcare regulatory law and have represented hundreds of healthcare professionals before a variety of courts and tribunals. In addition I have represented many families and care homes in all aspects of care law. My third specialism is that of coroners’ inquests where I represent families and clinicians. For more detail of what I can offer see specialist areas. Additionally since undertaking pupillage at a large criminal chambers, I have prosecuted for a number of bodies and defended hundreds of clients charged will all types of criminal offences.

So why come to me?

I have a wealth of experience in the areas in which I practice underpinned by a 20 year career in the NHS as a nurse, general manager and clinical director.

I understand the issues and dilemmas that clinicians face on a daily basis as well having a detailed knowledge of the law in each area. Furthermore I am a highly experienced advocate well used to both adversarial and inquisitorial environments.

As well as my legal practice I also provide a consultancy and training service in related areas for detail see tab.

Most of my work is generated from satisfied clients see what some of them have to say about me under testimonials.
