Our People

Esther Millard

Senior Associate

Esther Millard

I specialise in handling professional negligence claims on behalf of both individuals and businesses. I have particular and extensive experience with claims against solicitors, and have successfully resolved a large number of such claims during the eleven years that I have specialised in this area.

I also lead our dispute resolution service for independent schools and charities. I handle and supervise our school fees recoveries and enforcement claims, and as a professional negligence specialist, I am particularly well-placed to deal with any allegations of negligence or breach of contract that may be raised against our clients.

I studied Law at Queens’ College Cambridge, spent my training contract at Clifford Chance in the City, and then worked for five years at a West End media law firm in London.

Outside work, I enjoy writing and illustrating children’s stories, swimming, scuba diving and sewing.
