Margot has been a member of chambers since 1991 and has practised exclusively in the law relating to children since 1995. She is commonly instructed in the more complex public law case in which she acts for local authorities, parents, children’s guardians and intervenors, leading to the Legal 500 observation that she “frequently handles silk-type work” and is “an experienced and highly-skilled advocate”.

Margot has particular expertise in cases involving serious, life-threatening or fatal injury to children, allegations of sexual abuse and complex emotional harm.

Margot’s abilities have been recognised in the legal directories for many years. Her approach has been described as “sensitive”, “forthright” and “sympathetic” and as one which “combines expertise and experience with a wonderful sense of humour”.
