Danielle is a qualified barrister. Following a couple of years with one of the leading international players of the local motor trade, Danielle decided to pursue a legal career, where she now specialises in litigation, specifically personal injury, clinical negligence and employment, and gaming/e-commerce. In recent years, she has also been involved in company/commercial litigation with a particular focus on insolvency.
Danielle’s primary focus remains in the firm’s growing Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence practice, where she has had significant success, acting mainly for defendants but also for claimants and whose clients have varied between insurers and claim handers to children and protected parties. Danielle has dealt with a variety of cases ranging from injuries arising from misdiagnosis and negligent treatment of injuries and illnesses to injuries at work and occupiers’ liability claims generally, to work-related stress claims, road traffic accidents and cases involving catastrophic injuries.
Danielle also regularly assists partner, James Montado, with his banking/regulatory clients both in respect of civil litigation matters and financial services/regulatory advisory work.
During her time at ISOLAS, she has extended her litigation expertise to the field of employment, regularly appearing before the Magistrates, Supreme Court and the Employment Tribunal. Danielle advises on compromise agreements and more generally on potential unfair dismissal claims, redundancies and disciplinary and grievance procedures.
Danielle has a particular interest in the evolving Bullying at Work legislation and case law in Gibraltar and has presented and advised the firm’s employer clients and union representative clients as to the practical implications that the legislation is having on employees and employers alike.
'Danielle is an asset to the very busy litigation practice; we very much enjoy working with her.'
